It's okay if you're struggling.
It's okay if you need to ask for help.
It's okay if you fail at something.
It's okay if you congratulate yourself for simple things like getting out of bed or having a shower.
It's okay if others don't understand why you're congratulating yourself.
It's okay if you slip up or relapse.
It's okay to be angry about your illness.
It's not okay to punish yourself for these things. You are doing better than you think. Just remember, when you're in too much pain, too tired, that you are so much more than just your illness.
