My Previous Travel Blog for Chronic Illness

For more than 30 years I have been traveling and for half of that time have a chronic illness. I know first hand that it is EXTREMENT difficult but not impossible to travel while fighting for your health. It’s not like you can get your sick body for your holidays and just get a new one. (But, that would not be AMAZING!?) That is why it is so much more important if you are chronically ill to plan an advance trip or something for that matter.

It takes a lot of courage to travel, particularly when you don’t always feel good. People might ask why we want to travel if we “feel sick.” That’s what we do … We want to live sick DESPITE. I know there will be consequences for myself to push on vacation, but we have to step out of the world sometimes because our diseases permit and live only.

I will give you tips about how to survive a holiday, just like my previous tour blog, however this time it’s the cruise edition.

1. Be Your Own Advocate

For yourself, you have to talk up. You just know how you feel. Make sure you get a clear picture of what you can and cannot do to avoid future disappointment. Many times, we do not want to make things difficult for people with chronic disease to explain our situation. Let everybody know beforehand that once a while you may have to leave so that nothing will happen later. Don’t be ashamed of anything you need breaks, a chair, a wheelchair. This will enhance the pleasure of your visit.

2. Wash Your Hands Regularly

Anyone with a chronic disease can tell you that it is no joke to get sick with a chronic disease! A cruise is like a germ playing field, so even you can do what you need to do, even if you have to play soccer, to dodge germs like Odell Beckham Jr.

3. Plan For Your Medication

Before I began to smoke marijuana I don’t use as many medicines as before I used to. But even then, you must plan anything that will make you feel better. Whether your doctor tells you to get the medicine to order or whether it does like me. Dangerously Delicious Edibles I ordered edibles and rub and organized them daily as any other drugs I would like. On my cruise, I had so many back spasms and problems and the rub is ONLY that works for me now. Please let your doctors know in advance that you are on a cruise and may require medicines (or additional medicines according to circumstances).

4. Be Realistic

It is so easy to get involved in the idea that you are on holiday, so you feel that your body is on holiday too. Too … No! You are still faced with a chronic disease. As much as you want to go up Mt Everest and jump into bungee 12 times in a row, you’re going to wonder if you can do that? Is there time to recover afterwards? Will the rest of the journey be ruined? Plan as much as possible for the excursions. See review. See the reviews. Are there plenty to walk on the tour? All this must be taken into account. Do you like the time of day? Plan all this will enable you to have fun for the duration, and not just that day.

5. Expect Bad Times

It is hard to accept your body’s limitations, period if you suffer from a chronic disease. When you’re on holiday, it’s even harder. Others can’t have fun, so I hate to be the reason I’m trying to keep up with everyone. For me, that only worsens in the long term. Because I was so deceived about myself, I had so many breakdowns. Because they’re sick. Strangely correct? I still struggle to accept my restrictions, but only if you don’t. Cry and then move on if you have to. Take your time to rest and join your fellow cruisers later. Take deep respirations and keep yourself in mind.

6. Find Medical Right Away

When you need to go to medicine, the last thing you want to worry about is how to get there. Worse still, all this energy is spent in finding it if you only need it in order to find out that it is closed. It happened to me. It happened to me. Make sure you know where and the hours of the important things are. Headaches are to save you …. Or two.

7. Traveling To & From Port

Try as much as possible to space it out. You will not feel so rushed and it will take you time to retrieve from your flights if you can fly into town one day before you leave your cruise ship. Ensure the comfort of your clothes and shoes. You might be there for some time. Also, use the wheelchairs! Don’t worry, people that don’t know that people aren’t born in wheelchairs are stars, they use them.

8. Be A Friend To Yourself

Talk to yourself like you ‘d be a friend at those moments when you feel down. We ‘re so hard on ourselves for some reason. You haven’t gotten sickened. You ‘re not guilty. Speak to yourself children , particularly at that time.

9. Stay Hydrated & Eat Mindfully 

Yes , I know that you are on holiday, but you need to be aware of what’s going on in your body. Some things may be more painful for you later. Make sure you have enough water to drink. You’ll most of the time be out in the sun, make sure you first take care of yourself.

Although on this cruise to Turks & Caicos I had many breakdowns, I would do it again. This was something I was very glad to see, but it just affected me mentally and emotionally very sad about my limitations and physical pain. However, in the next cruise adventure, I hope you find these tips well! Be safe warriors! Be safe warriors!
