Through her work, she had made thousands of followers on her social media profiles but still, she was alone from inside due to which she ended her life and left all of us.
In the days before her death, Gilmer wrote honestly about her health problems, her posts reflecting a growing sense of finality.
“I wish I could describe how bad the pain is, but nothing seems adequate. I keep thinking it can’t possibly get worse, but somehow every day is worse than the last. This pain is more than anything I’ve endured before, and I’ve already been through too much. Yet because it’s not simply identified, no one believes it’s as bad as it is. This is not survivable,” Gilmer tweeted days before her death.
According to fellow patient advocate Terri Lewis, Erin was labeled by doctors as a complex patient with mental health issues. “Like so many others, Erin’s life was squandered. The loss of her unique talents, capacity, and learning is just unbelievable to me,” Lewis said.
She added: “I am angry that we find it acceptable to foster a system of siloed ‘healthcare’ that continues to reward marginalization and abandonment of persons with chronic multiple comorbidities. The death of Erin and so many like her was predictable, a matter of time in a system perfectly designed to fail chronic care needs. This was no error. The system is working as it is designed.”
