My Most Important Item is Support

When thinking about what item is the most important in my survival bag, well it’s not an item at all. I thought about my TENs Unit or Vick’s Rub or Zofran, but it’s not these things. (Thought they are very important don’t get me wrong) But I don’t know where I’d be without my support team.


My family visiting and calling me in the hospital makes the day sweeter and the time go faster. They are my rock through some of the hardest moments in my illness. Not to mention the friends that have been at the bed side or stayed in for a night to be with me. And lastly, the online community of other chronically ill young adults, with out this group I don’t know where I’d be. I used to think it sounded silly to talk about your online friends but some of my closest friends are online now. We share in this journey together and it’s become my most important survival “item”.
