What's the point?

I am young and I know things could be worse, but honestly what is the point if this is going to be my life every day. I shouldn't give up, but I can't stop feeling this way. If I didn't have my animals, I would just do it.

I know it's hard, but focusing on finding something, anything that will help you not be in pain will keep you going for a little bit after that stops working just focus on family and friends and staying strong for them. You got to find something that works for you to keep your mind occupied and get you up in the morning. Everything will be ok I promice

Bdvm -
I have been where you are now. Its hard finding a reason to go on. For me it was my loved ones. Then I started talking to others and it became important to me to be there for others struggling through the same thing. Then my new friends and I decided advocacy was the answer. So we did that.

Living with Chronic Pain may mean we have to give up or alter our dreams. It doesn't mean we can't create new dreams and goals for ourselves. Find new hobbies, learn a new craft etc.

There are new breakthroughs all the time with medical science. One day they will find the answers that will unlock the cures. Until then try to remember that although you may have a chronic pain condition it doesn't have to have you. You are so much more than that condition.

((((gentle hugs))))
