What Do I Mean When I Say I Want Freedom From My Illnesses?

I mean that I want to be as free as your average person. I want to be able to have a job and career aspirations, to study if I would like to. I want to have hobbies and things in my life that bring me enjoyment. I don’t want to be tied down or held back by my illnesses. I want to live with my illness rather than live as my illness. I want to be able to go on days or nights out. To be able to walk up to an ice cream van and eat popcorn at the cinema. For my thoughts to quieten so that I can hear conversation. To not feel confined or cooped up in the four walls of my house. I want to have friends and enough space in my head and heart to not only love those around me but to love myself too. I want to be able to do the simple things like going to a supermarket or catching a bus and I want to be able to do the big things like getting married and having a family. I want the world to be my oyster again. I  want to enjoy as many seconds of my life as possible rather than wishing each day to be over because the illnesses are unbearable. That’s what I mean by freedom.
