Well life brings many good things to me, but also many bad
There's maybe times I'm happy, though often I'm quite sad
To look at me theres no pain in my face, not that you can see
I keep it well hidden for only few will see, Sympathy is not for me
Compassion, caring & sharing, I open my heart to all before me
I'm a 49yr old woman, who lives in a beautiful part of the country, I obviously cant enjoy it as much as I used to, before things progressed, I do not have a strong pain tolerance, WIMP maybe ? We each have our own way of coping, what works for another may not work for some of us, I have found that we can learn so much more from each other and maybe we may even stumble upon some laughter and tears along the way, even dear friendships, I find from my experience with pain, I lost touch with many friends, through my choosing of course.
I felt it was easier for them as it was for me, the same old question " How are you feeling " I'd answer
" Yeh, I'm ok , just getting on with it " I feel its also just as difficult for those of us that have partners or friends who do not have the first clue about how 24/7 pain can affect you, through no fault of their own, and bless those that do try to understand and to look after those whom they love, its as much pain in their hearts as it is in our bodies.
I have Osteoarthritis, Fibro, Depression, COPD, Stomach Problems, Heart (under investigation)
Had Anterior Cervical Decompression Fusion done on 6th June 2014, more surgeries to come
on spine. Have had a few more surgeries since the age of 28 onwards nothing major, couple of
cancer scares, but hospital dealt with quite quickly, thank goodness. GSOH Still intact as yet !
Please feel free to E- mail, comment, share, vent (not at me personally) that'll cost extra...lol
