This post speaks the truth on so many levels. What people don't get, is that we really DO want to get better; it's just that we don't know how to deal with it. Our illness becomes a part of ourselves. A part, that we can never truly get rid of. So please, give us space and try to be a little supportive. Perhaps you don't fully get it and we truly do appreciate the effort you put in trying to help us. Just don't expect us to be happy overnight.
