I'm so sorry you are hurting. Somedays I believe that the emotional pain of living
with chronic pain can outweigh the pain itself. Living with pain 24/7 is difficult and wears
on our emotions.
Setting goals for myself each day helps. I know that I need to get a walk in and my
relaxation therapy. Each morning I have to physche myself up for the day. I'm my
own cheerleader, if I don't do this, it is easy for me to start feeling sorry for myself and
how much I hurt. Distractions are needed to keep me from thinking about
pain. I know it is there, but I can't dwell on it. My heart does go out to the Moms who
have kids at home. If they are old enough, they can help out. My daughter was doing
laundry when she was 12 and knew what housework was about
Remember to do something you enjoy each day, just for yourself...even if it is a bubble
bath. And last but not least...take one day at a time and count your blessings!
PS somedays for me require a good cry. I get it all out and go on :)
