Diary of A Sick Kid

I am India. I have suffered from a variety of health problems for most of my life. I made this blog to organize my thoughts and help others.

  • If crowded malls are your biggest problem this Christmas, you’re lucky.
  • If holiday traffic is your biggest annoyance this season, you’re lucky.
  • If not getting everything you wanted for Christmas is your biggest problem this year, you’re lucky.
  • If you have a roof over your head and food in your kitchen, no matter how small a salary you might earn, you’re lucky.
  • If you are in good health, you’re lucky.

If you’re healthy, happy, have food and shelter, friends and family that love you, and have love in your life, you already have the greatest gifts you can possibly receive. Take a moment of your time and be grateful for what you have, and pay those gifts forward to someone else who might not have what you do.

Happy Holidays!

I have wanted to be a doctor since I can remember.

fibrosupport asked: I'm sorry to hear about your current school situation :( I just wanted to let you know that online schooling is a different homeschooling option. I missed a lot of school due to illness and I knew I wouldn't get the education I wanted out of regular homeschooling. Online schooling has been just like regular school, but instead well...online :P It really has helped me a lot. It also isn't overly expensive. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask me please :)

Thanks hun! My only concern with online schooling is that, in the state of Maryland, I can only get  GED unless I am in highschool. My parents do not like this idea. I also am very interested in medicine and have wanted to be a doctor since I was a kid. I am not sure how a med school would feel about a GED.


Anonymous asked: Hi! What part of Maryland do you live in?

I feel like there is a stranger danger alert going off in my head…

But!! I am well armed and feisty.
I live just outside Baltimore.


“Never, ever, compare my pain and illness to those of others. My illness is mine, and mine alone. I’m completely entitled to feel everything–emotions, symptoms, and otherwise–that results from living with my illness. (I’m entitled to feel everything, that is, except shame.)”

Does anyone have any special plans for the holidays?

Hope everyone is as healthy as can be. 

Enjoy!


Update: The teacher I complained about has been taken off my case and is pending review.

essscaaapaaades asked: Hi! I am Mia... a follower with chronic pancreatitis, and now lactose intolerance and acid reflux. Have you reported that jerk teacher? It might not do anything but trying to get a new teacher could help. I actually had a teacher this year tell me to my face I couldn't handle college next year, and another one mock me to the class while I wasn't there about all my absences. In the end people don't understand, and you may just have to ignore it. No matter how much it sucks. <3 Stay strong!

We have. My parents are finally putting their foot down which is good. And I’m sorry. I really just want to beat those people with a cane or something. But thanks!!


Hey Guys!

Due to chronic join pain and stiffness I am occasionally finding it helpful to walk with a cane. 

Any one have any thoughts, recommendations, or ideas?
