As I've struggled to get my pants on then struggle to get my shoes on, I've wished I could share my pain for just a couple of minutes with those who surround me. Some do support, some try but don't really get it. I just wish they could feel what I feel for about 5 minutes. Boy would things change.
There are certain people I would like to share mine with, especially the fatigue and fibro fog, so they would understand that it's not in my head.....my doctors, pain nurse (even tho she's a pain nurse she doesn't really understand and keeps telling me to reduce my meds!) and some of my family....especially my dad!!!
Yes! My boyfriend really tries to understand what I'm going through (and I appreciate and love him very much for it), but I feel that unless you've been through chronic pain, you can't really understand how much it impacts your life.
Thanks everyone. Today was a tough one. I think today is probably the first time I've asked myself if I am gonna feel like this everyday, can I handle it. I'm a VERY VERY VERY positive person. So I'm just waiting for myself to come up with the answer that I can usually find. Still, those who surround me have no clue. I'm a bit bitter about it right now but I keep telling myself they can't help it. I feel useless. My son asked me to do a load of laundry so he can wear his warm up jersey for his teams recognition at a game tomorrow night. I was angry and told him he can do it himself. Ugh. That's not me. So my point is...who is winning right now. Not me.
