I was reading the Weekly Writing Challenge over at WordPress ‘The Daily Post’ and I loved the idea of writing a recipe to describe someone and thought maybe I could use this prompt to write a recipe to describe the life of a chronically ill patient! So here it goes:
Recipe for a Chronically Ill Person
4 cups of pain
2 tablespoons of dizziness
3 cups of fatigue
1 teaspoon of depression
2 afternoon naps
8 oz. of determination and strength
Pinch of wobbly legs
2 oz of awesomeness
1 comfortable bed
All the spoons you can find!!
To Garnish (optional):
1 awesome carer
1 pet to comfort you during times of sadness and misery
Mix all the ingredients well in a very large bowl with a wooden spoon. Stir well. When everything is combined; pour into a dish and place in the fridge overnight. If desired, add the garnish and serve!
So, if you were to write a recipe for a chronically ill person, what ingredients would you suggest for it? Let me know your thoughts and comment below!
