A Different Happy While In Chronic Pain

I am a 31 year old newly married woman who is deeply in love with my husband, exited about life and in constant pain.

I was never a healthy kid - and when I was 16 I began to get sick - by the time I was 18 I had constant pain.  I was diagnosed with endometriosis - finally had a hysterectomy at age 26 because it was ruining my uterous.  Then diagnosed with interstitial cystitis.  I now hae implants in my back to handle that a little bit - but the pain is always there.  I also have other things that the doctors are trying to figure out.

This year I began a blog about my journey of living wih chronic pain.  I want to be different than so many who just complain all the time and sink into self-pity.  Life is too short for self-pity even if I am in pain every moment.  I am excited about what this blog will do - the commitment to it has already been changing my attitude!  join me at www.differenthappyali.blogspot.com

We CAN be happy - maybe a different kind than others - but happy while in pain!
