Easter is coming. I want to wish you everything which is good, but that later. If i tell you now, you will not read the important part (( ;
Lately I’ve been spending hours a day talking to one guy;) Sometimes it even sounds feels like a confession – well, since i don’t go to the church, maybe it’s needed. I talk about problems that I’ve been discussing here for past two years too.
Of course I’m being cautious, why deter someone right away, but still. Strokes, spasticity, hormones, epilepsy, Rheumatology issues, many things in general. Shortages in abilities too.
And after confessing all of it i hear what? ‚It’s ok, you are more than that’.
At first I was left in deep shock. Because 99 percent of reactions are entirely different.
It’s so rare to hear something like that from person who isn’t that involved into your problems for, at least months.
Typical reactions are rather like this:
uno: uncomfortable curiosity. Tell me more, how did you earn that, why don’t you get a job?
Two: astonishment. So young? Whaaaat? Does it even happen?
Three: being snooty. Come on, you are healthy already. You are all right. I told you before that you should lead healthier lifestyle.
There are some more, but come on. These reactions make it difficult to talk about illnesses in general, and make it hard to meet new people.
But sometimes unexpected happens. You are more than this.
I know i was writing about all these things on my polish blog in the context of working of our wellbeing. But now I see, that there are people who can see us not by separate components, but the sum of them. thats why I’m in the perfect mood, and I’m having great Easter. And my mood affects my family in a really good way.
Now my wishes:
I wish you the happiest Easter time. i wish you that all the cakes would end up on taste buds, not in adipose tissue. I wish you dry Wet Monday (i hate changing clothes several times a day) and good people around, who see the sum, not components.
