I just HATE it. What is WRONG with people anyway?!?!?!
There I am, I find out I have a fellow chronic illness friend. She has sciatica, I am excited because I know how important it is to have someone in your life who really does understand. And what happenes next......?
"At least YOU are being treated and given pain medication." "Atleast someone will listen to YOU." "I have so much more pain than YOU, I am just able to hide it better. You are on medication and I am not." "You just don't understand how much pain I am in. You have it so easy."
Who cares who is in how much pain or who is "worse or better". That isnt what chronic illness is about. Pain is subjective. Each mans 10 is truly their understanding of the most extreme pain they have been in. We are ALL equal in pain. Hey, I know how much problems in the spine hurt!! I know how hard sciatic pain can be! (*duh* I have a progressive spinal deformity!!!) What the heck is this whole "atleast you" every other sentence? I guess I make my medical problems look easy?? Sheesh. Remind me never to be that bitter and angry about the world. *shiver*

You're not working anyway....it's not any more trouble for you to keep my child too....you are always hurting somewhere....you take too many meds....you don't have anything else to do so you can go to my house and fix my computer, pick up my meds, look up how to fix something online, help me with my school, help me create a presentation, create a PowerPoint from my vacation, take me to the airport, pick me up from the airport, print my pictures,order my supplies, check my mail, etc...and lastly...there is no reason you can't be "name the place" because you don't have anything else to do. UGHGHGHGHGHGHG

I was going to add to these lists, but I realized that in all honesty....I have it pretty good. I have an amazing husband, caring family and friends, lots of love and support from those around me and no one (not even my employers) who drags me down or impacts my life negatively.
I'm blessed beyond belief with so many good things in my life - so I try very hard to focus on the positives, and remove the negatives from my life as quickly as I can.
I hope everyone is feeling as well as possible. I'm sending good thoughts and love out to all of you!
Conditions: Fibromyalgia, Severe Myofascial Pain, Chronic Pelvic Pain (with permanent muscle damage), Femoroacetabular Impingement (CAM and Pincer), Reynauds, IBS, Surgical Adhesions, Ophthalmic Migraines, Severe Hot Flashes (both Surgical Menopause and medication related), plus physically unable to vomit due to the Nissen, and I have extremely tiny veins with a lot of scar tissue...a joy when it comes to having to give blood or get an IV started
Surgeries: Appendix, Uterus, Nissen Fundoplication for GERD, Left Ovary, Gallbladder, Right Ovary, TVT
