Autoimmune Disease

“Once the light fades, everything is dark.”

How do I even begin to explain…?

Neuropathy.

When my tired, entire body twitches uncontrollably and randomly. . . Sometimes a twitch may be so uncontrollably wild – and my phone is no longer in my hand. “Go to bed” is what it’s saying. My muscles need healing. My body needs healing. If only it would just happen overnight.

Instead I sleep, I wake, I feel just as tired as the night before.

I sleep, I wake, I hurt, I work, I move, I lose – I sleep, I wake, I hurt.

I got way too much time to be this hurt
Somebody help, it’s getting worse
What do you do with a broken heart?
Once the light fades, everything is dark
Way too much whiskey in my blood
I feel my body giving up
Can I hold on for another night?
What do I do with all this time?

✌🏼&💜,

Bailey

  1. I know you struggle everyday to deal with your health issues. The road is long and hard, but just know it isn’t as dark as you think it is. I and those closest to you, support you through love and prayers. Pray to give you strength to fight the battle another day. Pray for you to have days that are as close to normal as possible. So wake and walk through the dark, but you’re never alone 💚

    1. Are you trying to make me cry?!?! Oh my gosh.

      Thank you so much for the words that are so kind, words that I’m sure others aren’t certain on how to communicate to me. I appreciate every prayer, every thought, and anyone willing to support me.

      I also pray for you. Because your road is also hard and dark. Everyone has their own daily battles that others are not able to understand the full extent.

      Thank you so much💜
