I am angry because not a day goes by that I don't have pain.I'm angry because doctors just can't seem to help you.I'm angry because the physical therapy I had for 5 weeks didn't help me.I'm angry because I just can't do the things I use to.I'm angry that cleaning my house is such a challenge when it use to be routine.I'm angry that I want to have fun... but the pain and weakness stands in the way.I'm angry that I have to take something to help me sleep.I'm angry that I have to take medications at all.I'm angry that I can't just be spontaneous. My life is all about doing things when you have less pain... which isn't very often.I'm angry because I can't eat certain foods that trigger bad symptoms.... so I must read every lable before I purchase it.
