No one sees this limitation
Living a life in a young body less than
Healthy and able
Than many in their 70s.
How did I get here, for nearly a decade?!
I have not been myself since 2012
My back traded in for a pain factory
with too short episodes of relief.
What I don’t talk about is the hard times
In New Age climes of “you choose this”
I did not.
My suffering is worsened by being unable
to enjoy the delights of the youth that this same body
I will not give up. I will not hide.
This experience is a big part of my life
Until I die.
I created a new tag for chronic pain. I’ve been working really hard to get through it for a very long time now and how debilitating it feels. I’m in the midst of it and the depression and anxiety tries to grip at me. I’ve been fighting that for a long time, too. I wrote this to connect with people who also experience chronic pain and who are often side-lined by their experience. I’d especially like to reach people who have debilitating problems while being a parent of an active and delightful (willful) toddler. I’ve done all things and all the energy work and all the healings with so many care providers dumping so much money into trying to resolve this. I even got myself a Master’s Degree in Chinese medicine, studying Eastern arts, herbs, and other management methods beyond that with tips and tricks that never end. I ask you to kindly (and I will delete) withhold any comments which try to offer fixes for me or make any statements other than supportive ones.
