Five Things That Are Annoying When You Have An Autoimmune Disease As Told By Friends.

Hello, I have Hashimoto's Disease and as a result, have a lowered immune system and a whole bunch of other issues but I like friends.

If you have autoimmune issues or diseases then I am sure you can definitely relate to these annoying things that happen to you. If you don't have issues maybe you will just learn something or just enjoy the "friends" gifs.

I really love Phoebe and Chandler. Who is your favorite character?

Five Things That Are Annoying When You Have An Autoimmune Disease As Told By Friends.

If you want a little more background on what exactly my autoimmune disease is a link to my article about is here:

But anyway let's get to the comedy involved in it!


Getting Sick All The Time


Basically no matter how hygienic and careful you are to constantly be having vitamin C and essential oils you still wind up sick. Like today, for instance, randomly getting day colds, flu, and other illnesses are the norm and quite annoying.

It turns most days into a smelly cat. What is my autoimmune disease doing to me?

Explaining Your Symptoms


My hands shake. My eyes tend to have bags. I tend to get sick. Sometimes my head shakes. Etcetera etcetera. Explaining it repeatedly gets old pretty quick. Plus, I'm never on a break from it.

Explaining Your Disease


It really is work to constantly be explaining your disease. Usually, this discussion follows the already annoying symptoms chat and just gets annoying since no one really understands your disease including yourself sometimes. Explaining it repeatedly oftentimes turns me into a Ursala type person or a very hungry and nap deprived Joey.



Yes. I have an incurable life long disease. Yeah, that sucks. Guess what, it is treatable and for the most part, I lead a very normal life. So constantly saying you're sorry and giving me pity does nothing to fix my disease or treat it. Sorry is not the medicine I need to take every day. Sure it is nice but totally unnecessary. It is not always annoying but sometimes under the right circumstances like say moving a couch up several flights of stairs can create some anger that needs to be unleashed.

Having The Autoimmune Disease


Obviously having the disease is straight up annoying. Making sure I take my medication every day, getting blood drawn, doctors visits, symptoms, getting sick, and coping with it the best I can is pretty annoying. I don't like but hey (brace for dark humor) if I don't do it I'll die so a girl's got to do what a girl's got to do. (de-brace dark humor has ceased.)

Anyways if there is anything that annoys you what is it? Of course, I also must ask...

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
