Last week, our car was vandalized. I can tell you, I would never wish pain on anyone, not even the individual that did so to my family vehicle. For the past six years, I have lived with chronic pain. What started as migraines on a daily basis has moved to my back, legs, sometimes my arms and even hands and toes.
One of things I constantly see discussed is the quality of life and an individual’s “total well-being”. Unfortunately, when you are young and diagnosed with a pain disorder such as Fibromyalgia, you are met by skeptics. I have been told numerous times, I’m “too young” to be in real pain. I can tell you right now, there’s nothing fake about trying to live and accomplish basic tasks when you’re in pain after doing absolutely nothing.
Lately has been an extremely trying time. Our insurance is simply put, worthless in allowing a person to find health care treatment that will work and not just have a million medications thrown your way to “try”. I’ve had meds that made me unable to drive, unable to form a thought, gain excessive weight fast, I even had side effects that almost caused a stroke.
I’m sick of pain taking over every.single.minute. of my life.
