So I am … SICK. Sick sick. I hope not “flu” sick … but definitely sick. At any rate, this “tough question” has nothing to do with chronic illness or being sick … at least not initially (there are nuances to everything … and everything leads to further questioning!). So, once again, if you feel comfortable answering, please do so! And if you do not, but want to answer, feel free to contact me privately! At any rate, here is the “tough question” of the day –
“Do you believe it is ‘okay’ / ‘justifiable’ for those who do not have enough money even to feed / house themselves to have many children? Is there a difference between those who live in ‘First World’ / ‘developed’ countries and those who live in places like Sub-Saharan Africa or the Indian Subcontinent or other generally ‘impoverished’ places?”
I really would like to hear what others have to say about this one because – if you couldn’t already tell – it is a topic I try to understand but really seem to be unable to / I do not understand it.
So, throw in your answers – no judgments, honestly, and I say that because my “answer” to that question is very “judgey,” I suppose!
Need to get in my immunoglobulin. Hope to be back soon!
❤ Always, Beth

I have been living with chronic illness since I was 2 months old. My first "formal" chronic illness diagnosis was Behçet's Disease - I was 17 at the time. I was later diagnosed with Common Variable Immune Deficiency (I more or less led the doctors to that diagnosis - that story is for another time!) and those have been my "primary" two illnesses. I have many other "secondary" diagnoses such as seronegative Rheumatoid Arthritis, Chiari 1 Malformation (a result, I believe, of the Behçet's causing aseptic meningitis time and again since it had never appeared in brain scans before I was about 24-25), osteoporosis, compression fractures of the thoracic spine, and many others. I know what it is like to feel as if you have lost years of your life that you can never recover from illness and the many restrictions it places upon you in your everyday life. I just want you to know that I know what it is like and I have been there through every period of my life - you are NOT ALONE! Please do not hesitate to contact me if you ever need someone to talk with or someone just to listen to you - I am always here! Thank you for taking the time to read this and my other posts and I hope you are having a happy and healthy day no matter where you are in the world! Take care.
