I know everyone here can/is having a difficult time with this condition. Some worse than others but we are all suffering, praying, looking for an end...some relief.
Personally, I have been through ups and downs for 3 years. Battling depression, anxiety, relationship problems because of this condition. It's physically and mentally exhausting. I've been down a long road with many bumps and detours and don't see an end anytime soon. Which has been very hard to come to terms with resulting in sleepless nights, crying out bursts, and denial. I think we can all pretty much relate to each other.
I was browsing a website and found a quote I wanted to share. I'm sure many have heard it before but some (me included) need to be reminded of.
"You were given this life because you are strong enough to live it."
One thing I remember throughout my childhood health problems was I was around 8 years old laying in bed crying to my dad, asking why me...why do I have this problem, why do I have to suffer. He told me "God knows you're the only one strong enough to handle it." Even though I have lost contact with my father, I will never forget those words.
Just remember, you are not alone in your suffering. It will get better, hold your head high, don't let it take you over.
