I know I'm suppose to be resting my right arm, which I'm using now (and it's tightening every muscle into cramps), but I'll rest later.
Some days are good and some are bad, and then there are those that's excruciatingly bad. But I'm 54 and I've lived over half my life already; living to 46 very functional & without any AI or debilitating disease/disorder/dysfunction in my body. Sure I have issues that are incurable, but they aren't deadly that I know of. Yes I've had many chronic pain conditions for decades and I'm never pain free; but I can walk on my own with & without assistance aids, or control a motorized cart I ride; I can breathe on my own; I can hear the birds sing, dogs bark, wind blow, children laugh; I can smell ocean & raindrops, fresh baked goods, flowers; I can see all the beautiful things in the world, be it simple or extravagant; I can still eat pretty much anything I want on my own, though there are choking episodes with each meal since my last surgery. Yes there are days that are very hard for me, and sometimes it's hard to push my way through. But when I stop thinking about my own problems, and think about others who are worse off, my life isn't really do bad. I've experienced almost everything I imagined or wished doing in life. I dreamed of traveling in my older age, but alas that is not meant to be. But I can still enjoy seeing & hearing of travels by others. Rather than focusing on what I can't do, I want to focus on what I can do. I wonder if I can help others, like those in the story below? Hugs love & prayers for everyone to have a blessed Sunday! 🙂💕🙏🌸
This story was on the CBS Sunday Morning News today. And I wanted to share it with you all: "Putting A Face On Pain"...
