On some level, I am treatment resistant.
When I hear the tales of others being symptom free for a long time, in some cases, years… I am reminded that at least in my case, that is not the situation.
It’s okay though, right?
I mean, we all have something to deal with.
It’s just difficult having any chronic condition—especially one that isn’t being treated with a high degree of relief.
I think, for me, I sometimes employ high expectations of the people, places, and things in my life.
Because I am not asymptomatic. I have a plethora of mental health nuances, so I just have to deal—as does anyone else.
And, that is what I do.
Is being treatment resistant your reality? What’s the next step for medical technology? And, how do you reconcile your chronic conditions with the notion that some people do go a very long time and do quite well with their so-called chronic illnesses?
