Re: Living with Ourselves

I empathise with you @Sophia1 I am struggling with my body pain, & the stiff back, neck, & knees, & left hand, at the moment, too. Unless one goes though this, it really is hard for others to understand. Believe me when I say to you, I understand!Woman SadHeart

Some how we will get through this, I believe that!

Love & Hugs! Heart



Re: Living with Ourselves

Yes you are right...


my back is worse after going for a walk...I could feel it when I was walking..

It makes me so upset because walking has been my lifeline for most of my life...

So I must not give up...

there are others on here with long term chronic pain also...

Your injuries make mine pale in comparison..yet you show empathy towards me ....

I get so tired of having to justify why I cannot do something..

people see me and assume that I am fine...

some family members are actually put out that I do not fit in with their needs...


Yes we will get though this...we will not stop believing that...💜

@Sophia1HeartWoman Happy

I loved walking, I walked long distance daily for years, My fitness level was high. I loved to lift light weights, I had a Membership at the Local Gym. I danced & was happy, even though I had lost so much material possessions, & family in my life. Then just like a Bomb I lost the ability to be mobile, & free to live my life Chronic painless, & all of my friends, because I could no longer fit in with them.

Then Spinal surgery without proper human love, & support. I am standing now, No More Loss!

You & I Will get back our health, I am standing with you Sophia, 2 can stand STRONG! 

Amen! HeartHeartWoman Very Happy
