The reminder

Aug 28, 2016 12:09 PM

I've got a friend who is healthy. In terms she is not a pain patient. However,she has stuck with me from before the beginning of all this. She has been up front about not understand and ask questions all the time. I have her foe her efforts to not judge and to be here for me.
But today I was reminded of how she still don't really get it. I've had a hard few weeks of pain yesterday was nkt good. So today we were talking and I mentioned not wanting to do my stretches.. as normal she pushed me to go ahead. So I did a five minute streach session . She thsn says. Oh thsts all? And I'm like uh YEAh! Heck with the way my hamstring were spasming five minutes is and accomplishmet. Ha.. but all in all I still know she ment well. But it's so easy for healthy to forget how we suffer daily .

Newfibrogirl it IS easy for them to forget because it's not up in their face day in and day out. Celebrate the fact that she tries, she pushed you and you accomplished 5 minutes of stretches that you may not have otherwise done.. A victory for you!!! Way to go, Girl.. It's all good. 💕🙏🏻🌻😊

Yes I'm hearing you newfibrogirl. I have a very close friend of 31 years, we are both hairdressers and sometimes I agree to help her out, but she doesn't get the amount of pain I deal with daily. Her intentions are good to get me out of the house but when it hurts to do everything sometimes its impossible. Especially when you are standing doing cuts, colours, shampoos etc. I've never asked for money, just happy to help. But, when she puts $30 in my bag for 8hrs work, well I don't feel like helping again

I wish I had a friend close by like that. Good for you! 🙂💕🙏🌸
