A few weeks ago someone said to me, “You’re so plucky, I love it!” And I had to google what the word meant since I didn’t know 🙈
That being said… ☝🏼it’s one of my new favorite words and after learning the meaning, I took what she said as such a compliment. It’s a word I’m sure many people who deal with chronic/invisible illnesses would be proud to be described as.
This pretty accurately describes the majority of a spoonies life. A confused jumble and medley of things.
Symptoms (and more) are so unpredictable. One day we might feel great and the next day we may feel like we cannot even fathom getting out of bed. Treatments are also unpredictable. Some treatments work, even if only a little bit, and some treatments work so poorly that they may even make our symptoms worse.
Life is a rollercoaseter for everyone. Ups and downs, unforeseen curves, etc. For people living with chronic illness or disabilities, life is a completely unstable rollercoaster. It’s a gallimaufry.
Spot on 👍🏼
A word for dreamers. A word with such an idealistic, beautiful yet disappointing definition tied to it.💔 This is a word I don’t exercise often in my vocabulary, rather I store it away for when I drift off into dreamland 🌀🌃
I so wish that there was one solution and or answer to all of yours and my problems, illnesses, difficulties, what have you. What I wouldn’t give for that to be a reality. 🌠
Adj. burdensome, troublesome, or oppressive.
AKA many many things people with chronic health problems face day in and day out. A word we don’t like to use, but can’t help but to associate ourselves with. However, because we identify so closely with this word, it results us to also associate ourselves with words like strength, perseverance, and courage.
