At the top of my blog you will now find a new tab which says “Share Your Chronic Pain Journey”. In one of my recent posts I wrote more honestly and openly about my own journey as I seek to regain my health. When I Ask For Help, I Receive Hope After that day, I was surprised to see my stats on my blog immediately rise plus I’ve gotten more subscribers as well. I was hesitant to write about my chronic pain because I felt it would come across as being negative, or coo-coo, or that I was only complaining – when I know that I am in reality – positive and courageous. We all are. Yes, I’ve wanted to take a flying leap off of my balcony, but, instead I’ve hung on to my bed many times as if it was my life raft and I am lost at sea in a storm. I have ungracefully hung on many times – yet I still feel courageous and hopeful on my path of never giving up. My intestinal surgery was in 2002, which only temporarily helped if only a little. The past 4 years I have felt that living with chronic pain has become more difficult for my body to endure – but I have not given up. I am seeing a new naturopath, she wrote the book, “The Candida Cure”. I continue to be hopeful even though the past two days were brutal and I did not leave my home once more. But I am following direction, and I am allowing myself time to heal. It is a slow and arduous process. I deserve vibrant health. And I am willing to do all I need to do until I regain my health.
Please click on the new tab above “Share Your Chronic Pain Journey”. I have started writing on it.
Something big is just around the corner. More blessings are on the way for all of us. If I did not know deep sorrow – then I would not know true happiness. I will live a long life and I most certainly am planning to live it in good health.
