Hello community! My name is Tonya, I call myself Appulovhyzeye because I am the apple of God's eye. I am a spiritual person despite what others may think about spirituality. I suffer with many illness, but I know in due time I will be healed. I deal with Chronic Pain, Fibromyalgia. I was misdiagnosed for 11 years with Diverticulitis, and this year they finally found the culprit... Ulcerative Colitis, Diverticulitis, Fibromyalgia, Chronic Pain/nerve damage. I also suffer from depression not only because of the disease but because of issues from childhood that has followed me to adulthood. I'm here to find more people that's like me who has or is overcoming/overcame these diseases and/or has learned how to cope with them, and to possibly make long lasting relationships!!! xx

Welcome Appulovhyzeye! Love the name & meaning. I'm sorry you're suffering with so much so young (your pic looks much younger than me...πŸ˜‰). I've suffered various chronic pain issues since 1991; quit work in 2010 to recover from major surgery; dx with fibro in 2014, and it's been downhill since. Accepting my old life was gone was the hardest, but I couldn't move forward until I did. My faith in God has been my lifeline, and this community of wonderful people are the hands helping me hold on. There are good, bad, and ugly days of pain; the past few days are in the ugly zone due to my right arm (long story), but I'm using my left hand and it's awkward & slow. It's wonderful to have faith you will be healed, it takes faith. Just remember that everything we go through offers something to teach us; strength, patience, faith, etc. Job went through much sorrow and suffering but he remained faithful, and eventually he was returned to better health and many more blessings than he lost. But others suffered until death. I've come to realize and accept it as God's purpose I'm not to be healed, as my illnesses are being used to help others along with helping me not be too proud. My healing will be in heaven. Hugs love & prayers you will one day see healing, as you also find support and suggestions to help you cope through it all! πŸ™‚πŸ’•πŸ™πŸŒΈ

App! If it were not my love of God, and his angels keeping me copeing then I would have given up. . When I reach deep and say that I turn it over to his angel to handle it makes it so comforting, but like each of us I try to do it on my own and that doesn't work so well.
