cw: pain (~)
early in my illness i came to the understanding that pain isn’t unique; cancer pain, autoimmune pain, pain is universal. one type of pain doesn’t “outrank” another, but medical professionals give preference to some types of pain over others, which leads us to think that some things are much worse.
now i am experiencing something that is like pain, but different? i’m currently calling it “body death”, as it conjures a feeling of rejection. it makes me want to stop persisting
hi, i'm demi. i have an undiagnosed illness (causing peripheral neuropathy), and suffer from severe chronic pain.
