I am proud to live in a world where technology is in such progress. It keeps growing and growing every day. The big computer box has been compressed into something so little that fits in my palm, cars are so smart these days that they tell us where to go and not the other way around…and so much amazing other stuff have developed…
However, what makes me mad, is that there are still so many illnesses that can’t be completely cured, only partly. Or there are medicine for not making it worse, but at the same time not making it better. Only for keeping it stable. And that isn’t quite enough for me.
There are so many people in this world who has to deal with illnesses that can’t be completely cured…They just have to live with it. And I am one of them.
Few years ago I discovered I have psoriasis. For those who don’t know what it is – it’s a not contagious, chronic immune-mediated disease that appears on the skin. But the sentence that made me say WHAT THE HELL was „The cause of psoriasis is not fully understood”. Turns out some people just have it and others just don’t. So I don’t know what I did to be honored with this „gift”.
Most people have it on their body, but I’m a bit „luckier” to have it on my head, cause I have medicine that partly cures it so that it’s not visible. Those who have it on their bodies have much more struggle. But still…I have to deal with this my whole life. I have to buy special shampoo that smells like skunks arm pit, and use special drops (that don’t cost cheap). So whenever I stop using those, my head will look terrible. I’m only 18 and I have to think about how to ensure myself with these things for all my life… Plus, it gets worse with stress. But how can I live without stress, when I have to deal with this? ;D It’s like a circle… I can’t stress about it, but since I have it, I am stressing about it ;D
But, there’s nothing I can do about it. I can only say IT SUCKS. And I feel sorry for people who have to live with something much worse. For them I can only say GOOD LUCK. However, there are people who are healthy but they still whine about everything. For those I can only say SHUT UP, YOU HAVE NO IDEA HOW LUCKY YOU ARE FOR BEING „JUST” HEALTHY.
Am I right? ;D
