What kind of pain do you have? I have fibromyalgia and am always in pain, but I try not to think of it, often I don't even notice it, but other times I do.
I know that it is hard when we can't buy things for the people that we care about. I think Christmas is so commercialized myself. Money, money, money. They want you to spend it all. And making gifts isn't always easy either, especially when you are disabled. But try to think of the true meaning of the holiday. Being with family and friends. Loving eachother and caring.
I know that a lot of people get depressed during the holidays and after they are over. It is hard, but we all come together as a group here and try to make it work.
Keep posting, and remember we are all here for you.
