This is the biggest joke my family spills all the time! You have to realize that I live in a household of Lyme people, and conversations often go something like this:
Person 1: "How are you feeling?"
Person 2: "Like I'm dying!"
Person 3: "I don't think the phrase "live like you're dying" was ever meant to be taken this seriously!
It may be the lamest joke ever, but it keeps us laughing and realizing that there's always something to laugh about, and some good to see in every situation, even if the thought of any good in pain at this substantial of an amount seems insane.
The reality of this is that whether it feels like we're dying or not, it's important that we strive to live life to the fullest. I abhor some days. I can't stand the pain and I want to give up on days that I hate, but I have to remember that there is a reason for all this and that I just have to keep inching forward and putting one foot in front of the other. Every effort we make through this journey is counted in the Heavens, and life can still have great value through these great depths that we're experiencing.
Comment below if this gave you a good laugh and how you live life to the fullest, even with chronic illness!
