The cripples among us

It’s amazing how chronic illness changed what I am looking for in a partner. 

Now I just don’t look for partners. I look for solace and refuge from the pain and all the other shit that comes with this fucking disease, but I clam up if I try to open up emotionally. I just want to stay locked away, where I can always tend to my needs above anyone else’s.

I crave space if I feel the slightest hint of my RA going awry. I can’t stomach the idea of sharing that rogue creature with another person. Other people that don’t have pain just look at me like I are a side show. My pain is weird and repulsive, but for me it is my normal everyday. A mask is always helpful; you have to slowly lower them into the flames.

I don’t usually post porn type stuff, but this is too much.

She is pure poetry.

The trauma said, “Don’t write this poem.
Nobody wants to hear you cry about the grief inside your bones.”

But my bones said, “Tyler Clementi dove into the Hudson River

We become undependable as companions, often having to cancel plans at the last minute if it turns out we can’t get out of bed on the day of a scheduled commitment. And, living in the world of the sick, we gradually have less and less in common with those with whom we worked and played.”

“Knowing these reasons doesn’t make the isolation any less painful an adjustment as we watch people disappear from our lives one by one, some after dozens of years of friendship. On top of this painful personal experience, we also encounter all the ‘healthy living’ advice that tells us that maintaining an active social life enhances both mental and physical health. And so worry is added to isolation.”

The chemical variances in RA patients is proven to cause depression by depleting serotonin and tryptophan. Unhealthy levels of serotonin cause depression and other PMS-like symptoms. Still, it’s cool that they have shown why people with RA are so frequently depressed beyond the obvious “their life…
