I finally found out during the end of 2011 that I have many severe food allergies, plus 2 copies of the genetic gene for extreme allergy to gluten. And in June 2012, I was diagnosed with extreme Fibromyalgia & Fatigue.
I have learned it is possible to find joy and blessings while living with chronic pain. I created a simple safe life that works for me. I have tried everything more than once when it comes to regaining my health. It always has been on the forefront of my mind – I’m learning how to try to put it in the background of my life instead. Some days are better than others. And I’ve managed to hang on to my sobriety through all of this. Out of frustration, in one of my more recent posts I wrote more honestly and openly about my journey When I Ask For Help, I Receive Hope I was surprised to see my stats on my blog immediately rise plus I’ve gotten more subscribers as well. We are all positive and courageous in our own way. We all feel hope through a common bond. Sometimes we may be lonely and isolated as we ride out the storm – especially when chronic pain can keep us awake at night – but I know we are not alone. No one goes unscathed – that’s for sure. Sometimes a good life is not for wimps – it is hard work – but we all are worthy of a good life with things that make us happy. Sometimes, the impossible only takes a little longer. Perseverance is a good thing. A new and improved life is on the way . . .
