Pain creates depression and a hopeless feeling

Nov 13, 2018 5:33 AM

I try very hard to not complain mostly because people will avoid me I think mostly because they don’t know what to say. My brother once told me he is ENVIOUS because I no longer work even though I had a great job and could retire in less then 2 years. You can not see pain and I tried twice to go back to work and I could not do it

I am lucky because I found a lady who loves me and wants to help me. I truly think if not for her help and compassion I would not be here today

I'm so sorry you have chronic pain and are going through this. You are not alone.

Obviously, your brother doesn't understand. Let him talk. You know what you feel and it sucks. Hold on!

I had to give up a job that I loved as well. I know I’d rather work than be home with this pain. I had a cousin who said the same thing. How lucky I was to stay at home. People just don’t think sometimes. Hope your having a gentle pain day.

I agree with u. I miss work SO much!!! I HATE being stuck at home. It's shitty too cause I don't look sick so people really don't understand. I would trade the pain for work in a heartbeat.
