Nobody believed I was sick. Turns out gluten was killing me. My website offers validation for spoonies.

When did you know your partner truly understood and accepted your chronic illness and everything that goes with it? 
Cause I need to know the signs, the real signs, not just the "understanding-for-a-month-then-not" signs. It's killing me. 😕

Plus, I think this would be a good discussion.

"She just wants attention. Don't give it to her!" "Her posts are just cries for attention!" "She's faking an illness to get attention." WTF?! I used to be told I was "looking for attention" all the time, and it literally drove me out of my mind.

However, I thought I was the only one. Not by a long shot, it seems.

We need to stop weaponizing basic human needs by using them as an excuse to degrade another human being. 
Needing attention, love  affection, or a listening ear is NOT wrong, and people very rarely fake illness or strife to "get attention". And if they do, guess what? They need attention, too. But not the kind people who say this are thinking of.

They need kindness and compassion, both of which are in very short supply in this world!

Love yourself. It's such a simple concept, but it can be so hard to do.

I do truly love myself now, but it has taken therapy, faith, prayer, and a deeper understanding of myself that only comes through maturity. 
Loving yourself doesn't mean you're selfish or vain. It means that you have accepted yourself completely, flaws and all, you are proud of who you are, and you will never again let anyone have the opportunity of picking you apart and tearing you down.

When you love yourself, you know your worth, and you will never settle for anything less than what you deserve.
