Just wear it…

#HAWMC Day 18: 

“Write about a time that you lashed out at someone close to you because of frustration/fear/anger resulting from your health condition and you wish you could take it back. Forgive yourself and let it go. OR, 
On the flip side, write about a time that someone said something to you that they wished they could take back. Did you forgive them? Why or why not?”

I don’t even know where to begin. The Joker’s iconic, “Why so serious?” pitch comes to mind. 

Am I supposed to publicly call someone out? ‘Cuz even if I don’t name names, the person is gonna know I’m giving them the evil stink-eye, right?

Either option, I’m calling someone out.

Someone will be offended.

“Silent” will be the treatment.

I’m not comfortable with that.

So, I’m just going to make myself a t-shirt.

I like t-shirts. It conserves time and energy managing the chaos of my reality.

For the main topics of things that would *make* me lash out…I give you:

shirt

…and that’s just the beginning. I could make a t-shirt for every day of the week!!

Hell, maybe I’ll just write a book.

While wearing the t-shirt.

  1. I could have written this post. While I am at the beginning of my journey with chronic illness, I’ve already learned some hard lessons. Sometimes friends will believe and acknowledge your illness more than family. Family wants to deny anything bad is happening in your life, because honestly, they are scared. But no matter how much you understand where their thoughts come from, it will still hurt. And there will be ‘silence’ on both ends.

  2. I have felt similar frustration. Thank you for your words. They matter. They help. Just wanted you to know.
