4. People are going to judge. In this world, some people can be so cruel. They are going to judge you for not working or going to school. but so what? They don’t deal with what you deal with every day.
5. Cherish life. When you’re ill, life moments like birthdays and family events can feel so much more important and should be cherished more than before. You realize you never know what could happen or how you will feel the next day, or for the next family event.
6. Even your family may not understand. Just like your friends, your family may not understand, or may stop understanding. They may stop being there for every hospital stay or surgery. They may stop asking how you’re doing or stop checking on you as often, not because they don’t care but because they don’t understand.
