You don't know me and I don't know you, and I can't even imagine how it is to live with RA, and I just wanted to tell you that I showed your blog to my mum who suffers from RA and fibromyalgia among other things, and she cried because you introduced her to the Spoon Theory and she'd never had a way to explain herself before. Just, thank you.
This is absolutely beautiful, thank you xx

I am going okay, honestly don’t worry about me! I apologise for the lack of comics. I am having issues with the app I used, and I am out of ideas :(
Good news! The post that was stolen and reposted (someone else claimed it as their own) has been removed off tumblr 100%
Thanks for all your support! There will be a comic soon :) xo

Anonymous said: Hey! I've written to you before for advice and it was always very helpful (thanks!) :) I'm in a new relationship and don't really know how/when to tell him about my illnesses. It seems wrong to just casually mention it but I also don't want to make a big deal out of it. He's very shy and just doesn't dare to ask about my meds etc. Should I just say "Don't you wonder why I'm taking so many meds?" or should I keep it to myself? What would you do? xo
hey lovely, thanks for writing to me :)
I know its a big concern among many chronically ill people is telling their boyfriend/girlfriend about their condition. It is obviously better to have a stable friendship before progressing into something more, but this does not always happen. regardless of that, I personally think it is important to let your partner know about your condition. There is no need to disclose this information on the first few times you see them, but as you before closer, they will need to be aware of your illness and the limitations that come with it. Educating your bf/gf is also very important. They will likely have a lot of questions, especially if you are living with a condition not widely known about.
if you want to, tell them. But like I said, it doesn’t have to be something you bring up in the beginning. These conditions are a part of you, you live with them everyday. This is why I think it is important to tell this person. But it is your own choice :)
how to bring it up is up to you. You could just tell them that you have this/these illness/es and you feel as though it is important that they are aware.
let me know how you go, best of luck xx
