MFW: Chronic Illness Edition

I love MFW (my face when) reaction gif blogs, so here’s mine. 😉

My body whenever I don’t perfectly balance every aspect of my life:

  1. This is hilarious! I loved the Anne Hathaway gif. That’s so me at the doctor. He’s not there, I’m moaning, he’s in, I’m trying to act like a human being and not an animal- probably should let him see me my animal state. I can tell you put A LOT of work into this, and it was so much fun! 🙂

  2. Thank you… I mean fucking thank you. I have been in remission for a bit well OK lying to myself about still being in remission and this shit cracked me all the way up!!! I thank you! !
