I'm only a kid!

I'm really upset that this chronic pain is never ending. I'm only seventeen! And I want to enjoy my teenage years πŸ˜” I've been suffering since I was fourteen! Now I'm more over it than ever! I want to be enjoying the things my friends around me are enjoying. I wish this pain would disappear,I'm only a kid!

Harris, I'm so sorry you, & all the other younger one's are suffering so badly. At times like this I wonder why the most. My own 14 yr old nephew had a tumor on his tailbone at age 8, and now hes facing chest surgery because his breastbone turns inward and is pressing his heart & lungs. But due to my belief & faith in God, I believe there is a reason for all things. We may not know at the time.

I'm 54 and have had multiple medical problems since my early 30s. For me, God has strengthened me to endure through each issue. Not without depression and feeling overwhelmed, but on this app, I've finally found a support system from true peers. I'll be praying for you, as I do everyone else. 🌺

I'm sorry to hear that about your nephew & I really do send good wishes and strength your/his way.
I believe there is a reason for everything also but it sucks so much when you don't know that's reason :'(.
Thank you for your reply, I agree that this Is a great app to use.
Thank you πŸ˜”πŸŒΈ

I can only imagine what it would be like to go through this at your age. I am sorry that you have to. I am 37 and I just try to be grateful for the things that I can do. When I am able to go out and do something, even when I am hurting, I do my best to thoroughly enjoy it. We all have our bad days and pity parties, but try to look at the bright side. πŸ”†

Harris, I'm so very sorry that you're suffering at such a young age. I am 50 and have been suffering since my late 20's early 30's. There are many times I question why but that's not for me to know, just to endure and move
Forward. I know God has his reasons... This community has been a saving grace for me

Hi,my friend...We are at the same situation!I'm 16.Chronic pain from 13-14 too.

Feb 10, 2015 10:58 PM

Thank you very much! @ Hornsholdmyhalo

@Alwayzinpain I question that also πŸ˜” But I do think this community has helpful thing to share, just unfortunate. Thank you.

@MichaelR So nice (but unfortunate) to know I'm not the only person this young on here,right. May I ask what's your chronic pain from?

Feb 11, 2015 11:53 AM

Harris, I do understand your plight and I sympathize. I've been questioning as well for the past several months as it just seems to be one thing on top of another at this point. I even resorted to go to the ER and that's something I would never do normally.

Feb 11, 2015 11:58 AM

Harris -I'm so sorry that you have to walk this painful journey. My prayers are with you.

Feb 12, 2015 10:13 PM

I understand how you feel. I'm 21 and have been having problems since I was 15. I think about it as I was given these struggles because I'm strong enough to handle it and that someone else could've gotten them that wasn't as strong. You just have to take it day by day and do things when you feel up to it.

Feb 13, 2015 2:22 PM

I hate when people say that they understand what you're going through, because they never REALLY do... But I'm turning 18 in April and I've been struggling with pain in back and legs since I was 12. Also, recently, my hands started to go numb and I have this terrible burning sensation all the time. So I guess I get what you're trying to say. It sucks to not be able to write your own tests or go to a party and dance with friends...
But in my heart I have this hope and great belief that something better wil come out of all of this! Strongsβ™‘

@lucky13 I totally get that,going day by day is probably a lot easier!
@TM532 I know! That sucks, the best things happen to the best people πŸ˜” &yes I feel like I live with hope everyday..
Thank you all for your reply! 🌺

Lol, this old girl has no idea what "Kik" is, nor would I be able to figure out how it works! Lol...I'm still old school!😰

Feb 16, 2015 8:14 AM

Kik is like texting but free. It's an app like this and I find it very useful (despite now having unlimited texts )

Feb 16, 2015 8:20 AM
