So, so true. I even do this to my own self when it happens...EVERYBODY on here who gets better or improves suddenly forgets what it was like to be really really ill and then decides to post that all you have to do is ignore it and distarct and it will go away
There are endless factors that come into the path of recovery that you might have been unaware of. I think it's rather naive to assume it's one thing, you know?
Your comparison holds some truth but there is a reason why it's chronic for us and we had to notice it while the normal person 'ignores' it and it's nothing.
Best of luck!
