This o/s was such a powerful way of getting the message of M.E across to people. I suffer 24/7 with this delipatatiing disease and ech entry in the diary is a very accurate account of what a person with chronic illness goes through each day and night!
Thank you so much for highlighting what a person with M.E goes through daily. Take car ((( hugs))).

Thank you so much for such a beautiful, touching fic. After reading it, I looked up this disease, and I have so much respect for those fantastic, brave people who go through this kind of thing every single day of their lives, and have the strength to carry on. I wish anyone suffering from this all the best, and send you my prayers and best wishes, and hope that your suffering is eased. It is so unfair that those in life who are truly inspiring and wonderful people, who have the determination to make a difference to the world and people, like Bella, have to be taken so cruelly from us in such a painful way, when we live amongst people who have no respect for life or gratitude for their opportunities. This fic has truly made me view my life in a different way. Thank you again for the insight into the disease, and I hope that we will be able to enjoy some more of your fantastic writing soon.

Thanks so much for writing this.
It was sad but I can relate to at least a sentence in every entry of her diary.
Suffering from SLE is a hard task to go from healthy to having to seek approval on day to day living even on days that I don't wish to go on. I can't begin to tell you how many of those days I have had.
this is beautiful story and while I'm heartbroken that she didn't get to live more of a life she wished to, I'm happy that she's now free.

I just... I have no words Hunny.
"I just want to be healthy."
When people are asked what they would wish for if they could, most would wish for material things - money, big house, flashy car etc. Some would wish for a better career, more time in the day or even love.
But for people who live with a life-long illness? Their wish is so simple yet so meaningful. They wish for better health.
And its really not fair.
This o/s was painful and heartbreaking, but it was so worth shedding the tears to read it. Thank you for sharing Xox

That is so sad. She deserved a better life. She wanted to live her life, when people who could live theirs waste it.

This fic was very touching. I have an all-new understanding for this disease now because of having read this story. I'd heard of it before, but I didn't really know anything about it until now. Thank you for giving us insight into what a sufferer experiences from it. On a side-note, in your story summary, you wrote "O/S". I googled that abbreviation but didn't find out what it stands for.

A long time ago, I was a nurse and worked with children.
Your story reminds me some of them...

This was heartbreaking. To know that there are people in the world that have to suffer like this day in and day out and who are treated that way by their peers hurts my heart. This was an amazing o/s and I hope it can at least bring understanding that disabled doesn't mean broken, that we are all people worthy of love, friendship, and freedom. Thank you for taking the time to write this sweetie, and to draw attention to an illness that is so often overlooked. /hugs
