In addition to living with several mental disorders, I also live with several physical disorders. The most difficult to cope with are definitely Cyclic Vomiting Syndrome (CVS) and Chronic Pain.
Just as I iterated on the Mental page, the physical disorders and the mental disorders work together to make the perfect concoction of depression and pain. It’s a daily challenge. Even as I write this from an 8th floor balcony of an Orlando hotel on vacation, there is a little voice that tells me, “Just jump over the side. No one will miss you, and you will no longer hurt.”
Many people in my family have a hard time grasping this struggle, but I can’t blame them. I am still grasping at it the best I can. I will elaborate on it more in the coming pages.
