To the young spoonies,
it’s okay to be scared. While most people are looking forward to college and getting away from their parents and having adventures, it’s okay if you can’t really focus on that. It sucks if you have to worry about health insurance and picking up prescriptions and living life with an ever-present illness. I know what if feels like to have such a burden on your life, but please know that everything will be okay in the end. You’ll find a way to manage your health and still do the things you want to do. Your success does not have to look like everyone else’s.
You’ve got this, kiddo! Keep going! I’m so proud of you.
reminder that your trauma is valid even if you been gaslit so many times that you’ve internalized the idea that you’re overreacting
