So often someone I know will ask me about how I'm feeling,
or how some of my treatments are working out for me,
and other people who overhear, will look at me...and say....
"You, what could possibly be wrong with you?"
When I tell them just some of my six or seven diagnoses
(I lose count, or at least try to!!)
They reply with a,
"But, you always look so healthy and happy!"
YES, I try and smile through the pain
for my children's' sake and for my own sake.
Since there is no magical cure for the things I have....
there is no need to dwell on them, and cry about them 24/7.
Now, don't get me wrong...
There are many days that I cry.
(I always try to cry in the shower!)
Why? It's my comfort zone..and my kids can't see me when I'm in the shower!!
I just wanted to post this today to remind others
what we already know...
LOOKS CAN BE DECEIVING!!
Just because someone is smiling on the outside...
Doesn't mean they aren't dying, crying, hurting, etc...on the inside!!
What it all boils down to...
basically, that whole
NEVER ASSUME ANYTHING,
cuz I'm sure we all remember what
stands for, right?
Ok, enough of my babbling/preaching, etc.
I hope all of you are feeling as well as you can be
under the circumstances!
I'm thinking of you all, YES ALL,
even those of you I don't know yet!!
Others in pain, are always in my thoughts :)
Luv and health to you.
For those of you who read this on my
'chronic pain' blog...
I apologize for the repeat!!
However, I thought this post should be posted for all to see.
After all, it's not those who deal with chronic pain day in and day out
that need to read this...
