Occupy CFS - There Is No Spoon

"When I pretend my illness isn’t happening, either by pushing through my symptoms or by distracting myself, it actually doesn’t reduce my suffering. I might feel better in the moment of denial, but it’s impossible to maintain indefinitely. Sooner or later, the truth smacks everyone upside the head. I can’t pretend that I’m not disabled. Toni is right: when reality pushes through the flimsy wall of denial, it hurts more. Not only because my denial has probably led to a crash or other negative consequence, but because I’ve been fooling myself. That causes more pain."
