mosst people just don't get it. my wife has survived two cancers with permanent disfigrement. her probability for survival for 10 years is about less than me winning the lottery this week - i didn't buy a ticket which woulkd have marginally improved my chances). our daughter and grandkids still expect my wife to take car3e of this that and the other thing.
i am in constant pain 24/7 at a usual level of 5, rising to 9 several times a week. i do things that i know will increase my pain, like dig a flower bed or week a flower bed. it takes me forever to get the task accomplished and my pain level - well, let's jsut say it's always a 1 or 2 morphine day. but i LOVE what i am doing and what comes from it. the outcome is worth the pain to me.
is the outcome, or actrivity, worth the pain to you? if not, maybe you had better reconsider your actions. most people, even those close, just don't think or don't care.
