But You Don't Look Sick

What Does Sick Look Like?
Since I was diagnosed with chronic lymphocytic leukemia in 2015, I swear I have heard some of everything! LOL! But the most reoccurring statement I have heard the most in 7 years has most assuredly been... "But you don't look sick?"
I often want to ask... What does sick look like?? I don't know! LOL!
I do know what surviving looks like. And that changes from day to day, but I am! This journey has taught me a lot. I will always look too sick for some and too well for others and some honestly won't pay you much attention. That's fine! Keep pressing forward, embrace the great days... make the most of the icky days... and be thankful for every day, no matter how you look!
How do you feel about your support system?
