the thing is everyday i feel grateful for the pain earlier someone asked me if i worked no i dont im on a disability pension as i was born with epilepsy up until i was 28 epilepsy stole my memories and my only way to kick its ass was to sacrifice my ability to bear children since theni still have after effects such as arthritis and degenertive disc disease 2 years ago i popped a disc in my back which offset uncontrollable pain but it doesnt take away my memories i still remember my daughter etc so now dr investigating fibromyalgia and even if i do have it im gonna party cause i still remember i still can talk and laugh im not in a mind altering fog 24/7 i can still be me epilepsy took everything away and is y far a worse disorder so i am happy for the pain

Isn't it amazing what a difference a change in perspective makes!

Tascakez, I feel the same way... My pain shows my children that even though I'm in pain I will follow my passion and fight for what's right.. Recently my daughter and I went and participated in a rally to bring awareness of a birth control method that is harming thousand and thousands of woman around the world and we had a very wonderful bonding time even though I was in alot of pain.. This pain thought me how strong I really am and it's thought my kids that even pain can be a blessing.
