I ran across something the other day, and I imagine that many of you have also seen this. I even shared it on my facebook page, I liked it so much!

But i wanted to share it on here real quick as well. I hope you don’t mind 😉

Chronic Pain – A Letter to those who don’t have it

As a quick health update as well, the migraines insist on being severe, all day every day. I am still on medication for them, just to get through the day. (you do not  want to see me without them, trust me) I really do not like taking them, but for the time being, they are a necessity. My OH, family and friends that help me, even in the smallest of ways, I thank you from the bottom of my heart. This has been the most difficult time of this chronic pain journey and I appreciate all the love you give.  I was able (thanks in full part to my parents and OH driving me halfway each) to get home to Bend for my 30th birthday and had a fabulous week there. Despite the pain, and the rain – i mean, I left the valley and went to the desert and it rains??? – I came away with several memories and a gorgeous black lace dress that only needs accessories to be ready for the big outing – Phantom of the Opera – in May!

I do hope you take the time to read the above letter – go ahead and open it and leave the page open until you have time to devote to it. It so accurately states everything I think and feel.

God bless you friends, and in case you are unaware – Passover (Pesach) begins tomorrow evening!

    Thanks for posting this! It really helps me to understand better what you are going through and what you and others I know with chronic illnesses need.

      I’m glad you enjoyed/learned from this! I think it’s good for those of us with the pain to read it as well – sort of a ‘validation’ that we aren’t crazy or alone in this!! =)
