Chronic Illness & Childhood Collide

by Just Another Mom

I didn’t plan your life to turn out this way, after all what parent would? You’re my child, I wanted you to soar, not be tied to an IV pole. If I could take away every once of pain you have felt because of this fucking chronic illness, I would. But I can’t. No matter how hard I try, no matter how much I want to, no matter how many times you beg me to, I can’t. I’m sorry.

Tragic.

I have shared the same pain for 28 years - there is no light at the end of this long tunnel - just fear of what will happen when we're gone and he is alone.

I can't even imagine, but I can feel your sadness and frustration.

How heart-wrenching! Thank you, dear lady, for reminding me how fortunate I am to have escaped such tragedy. I hope something good will happen to bring you and your child comfort.

I'm so sorry. I can't even imagine it. I will remember you for a long time to come.
