I have been in constant pain for years, some days it’s low but when I say low I mean low to someone who is in pain everyday, its sometimes a 4 out of ten and I can deal with that and smile.

Two days ago I had a shower, showering always makes me feel worse but this time it caused a full flare up.

Last night I hit rock bottom, suddenly I’m realising what I’m missing, I’m thinking about what I’m going to miss over the next however many years.

I’m not after pity, I just want society to realise that we are not lazy and after a free ride, if I had a choice then I would be working, earning money to pay my own way and having a life outside of these four walls.

If I wanted easy then I would go into politics because that is an easy life where people’s taxes keep you in luxury for doing very little.


Today doesn’t exist for me!

Until next time!

  1. Thought I would let you know I am thinking about you. In the same boat today as you know. Hope you find some reduction in your pain levels soon. I don’t think the changeable weather helps.
