    Tired Indeed

    But aren't we all? I am lucky in that this isn't chronically embedded in my bones or muscles. It is only my spirit, being rotted away. Slowly. I feel that I infect people, that I lead people to unhappiness. It isn't always inflicted by others, in fact that is the rarest case. I...

    Every Day of My Life Is Painful

    I feel like, if I gotta live in pain every day & not be allowed 1 moment of happiness, then it's pointless for me to live. Everything I DO that makes me happy, I feel ashamed because people always make my happiness into a wrong-doing. Me going swimming is a crime because it...

    Life Sentence...

      I am serving a life sentence... A life sentence with Chronic Pain. The bars I stand behind are not metal; they are bars of tears, pain and grief. I wake up in my prison daily, to see my sentence unchanged. I do not see parole, only denial from living a normal life again. I...

    I Wish I Didn't Have To Worry About Consquence.

    I have a lot of physical and emotional pain. I know it's not as bad as some people have, but it's difficult to fight and sometimes I let it take over for just a glimpse, then I find my worlds upside down in a short period of time. I wish I could let go for a while and not worry...

    The pain is emotional,

    not physical--although my chest hurts from the grief. My disabled husband lost his job, I am barely working, and we have constant appointments without the money for gas to get us there. We live with my husband's dad, who pays half the rent, but is very controlling and obnoxious...

    I Know I'm Awake In the Morning When...

    I hear myself crying out in pain.  The moans and groans eek out from my mouth.  My dogs inch closer as I moan.  Then as I try to stand I feel the extra weight that magically appears to be on my ankles and my arms ache as I try to make them work as well.  It's...

    More Of The Same

    The pain has been getting worse. I don't know if it's the fibro, ms, tendonitis, arhtitis or what. My spine was seriously out of whack as well as my hips. I've been able to get to a chiropracter and it's helped THAT pain but the underlying pain is still increasing. I called a...
