You are not your disease

This disease or condition that you have – it is NOT you. It is something that you have to deal with, for sure, but it is NOT who you are. Whether it is Fibromyalgia, Lupus, MS, Bipolar Disorder, or anything else, it does not define you. Please remember that you are still the person you always were, though you may be more limited in what you can do now. You are NOT your disease.
