It can feel good to relate

I'm not sure this is the right place to post this but...

I've been feeling pretty low, lately. And I stumbled upon this article:

It made me cry but also made me feel a bit better. Being sick can be so lonely, at times. I have a great friend who supports me. But other than that, people around me (including my parents, sadly) don't seem to understand what I'm going through.

So anyway... It's a relief to hear about people experiencing similar stuff. I thought some of you might also appreciate it.

Thank you for sharing this article. I read it and yes, it can be depressing to read it and then it can also be inspiring to read it. I suffer from Ulcerative Colitis in addition to Major Depressive Disorder. No one can see my diseases. I look normal to them.

I have a second cousin that has a very rare form of Dwarfism. They did not think he would live very long. He has so many health issues, his entire life has been a challenge. He has to use an electric wheelchair too. He is now enrolled in college ! His family and his faith have really made him the amazing young man that he is today. He inspires others by accomplishing more than anyone would have imagined.
