Things I miss from before I got sick

  1. Having friends/community
  2. Being dependable
  3. Having an idea of how much energy I'll have day to day
  4. Loving my body instead of feeling trapped in it
  5. Not having inescapable pain all day every day
  6. Being myself instead of pretending I'm okay
  7. Backpacking
  8. Gardening
  9. Having hope about the future instead of just enduring
  10. Being able to clean my house
