  • Sorry you have that pain, I undesrstand that and I wish there was something I could do to help. As for family understanding, it is hard for them as they most probably dont want to see you suffering and unfortunately they all handle it in diferent ways. Stay strong Dawn, I can see by your posts that you are naturally a strong person, look forward to are in my thoughts.

  • Hi Dawn,

    You're right about family not understanding as I never understood my sisters pain until it was too late.

    Please do talk to your family and friends, whether they like it or not they need to know how you feel. I wish so much that my sister had sat me down and told me exactly how she felt before the depression crept up on her.

    Don't suffer in silence, do as moaning and groaning as you like!x

  • Hi Dawn, sorry to hear of your pain, its hard to deal with, I know. Youre not always moaning & even if you were, that's ok cos we all understand how youre feeling, I'm lying in bed writing this, I've had two busy days (cardiac rehab on Monday & hospital yesterday) & am in pain & shattered, here for you Dawn x

  • Good luck for Friday! I always struggle more at this time of year with pain, it's the damp and cold that makes you feel worse than ever! I can remember thinking stop moaning when Nan and Grandad used to moan about the weather and how they suffered, but I take it all back now, and I'm only 41! Lol I don't think families totally understand how we feel because we're not continuously ill which is hard to grasp I suppose. I hope you feel better soon and keep your chin up hunny. xx
