like the term AFFLICTION . A good term for the kaleidoscopic nature of chronic illness. There is no minimization of the real physical manifestations. We’re not imagining it. They are nervous system and micro-biome issues and they will manifest in endless ways. They cannot be put in boxes. …
a post…just because I cannot shut up and that which most people refuse to consider when innocent people are being harmed. First tweeted here.
