Dear chronic illness,
I am writing this letter to inform is to inform you that I am breaking up with you. I could say that the past 8 years have been fun, but that would be a lie. I’d say I have had a good run at this and realize it is just not for me. So really it is true when I say it’s not me, it’s you. We are just not compatible as you would like to think.
When you first came into my life I thought, hey this can’t be all that bad, well it was in the beginning, but I could have sworn it would get better. Boy was I ever wrong. Hey, it happens, sometimes anyway! You have been nothing but trouble, always taking more than you give. You are just so very selfish and uncontrollable. You don’t care about anyone but yourself. You have taken so much from me and never given me anything good.
You have continued to push me down and hurt me no matter how much I begged you not to. You just don’t care. How can you not care? What are you like this? What have I done to deserve all this hate. I know that I didn’t really do anything to deserve this, and this is just who and how you are. You relentless torture is really getting out of hand and you must be stopped before something even worse happens.
It’s about time that I take control and stand up to you for I am tired of the pain. I am tired of you taking everything form me and not giving a shit. I am going to fight to get my life back. Hate is a strong word, Mr. Cooper, but I can easily assure you that I definitely hate you with every fiber of my being! If you are on fire and I had the only water to put it out, I’d drink the water!
This is a love/hate relationship with more hate than love, because let’s be honest here who could ever really love you? Now I do want to think you for helping me find some of the best people I have ever met, but you make me exhausted, very painful and feel like I’m a failure, so thank you and goodbye!
If only it were that easy huh??
