Embracing life with chronic pain and illnesses.

“This Too Shall Pass”

A friend of mine who has Fibromyalgia told me that her mantra is “This Too Shall Pass”. Such wise words!

I find myself smiling inside…..hurting on the outside…..repeating those words….”This Too Shall Pass”.

Last Saturday was the company safety meeting…..I had to be there for set up……for the duration of the meeting and make sure all was taken care of…..

So as expected Sunday was nasty! My body was completely out of control. Anyone with a chronic illness or condition would understand that it was difficult! It is not fun being the one under the heated blanket….not having the ability or the energy to participate.

I did summon enough to sit and enjoy a board game with my hubby and son! I did not care about the slight discomfort…..I wanted to spend time as a family….I wanted to enjoy the opportunity to play a game. Our son picked out the game; and, I was ready and going to enjoy and participate, no matter how I felt.

This week has been EXTREMELY difficult! Starting a new week with such discomfort….okay…call it what it truly is…PAIN! Has truly been VERY HARD! I have not slept well…..my body and I are truly at war.

I am trapped….I am pushing through each day to perform the work that I am required to do…..I am meeting my outside obligations……I do not feel good.

I had additional blood work done yesterday……I am anxious to find out the results. I know that I will not hear anything until tomorrow afternoon at best……

I want to understand exactly what I am dealing with….I want to have any other possible issues ruled out….so that I can focus on my diagnosis. I want to focus my energy on what changes I can make to help bring this newest health “crisis” under control!

  1. That was my mum’s mantra for her fm pain too 🙂

  2. This is my mantra for my Trigeminal Neuralgia pain. It is a wonderful one to have in life, and I am glad you are sharing it with others. It has helped me through unspeakable pain.

  4. Music to my ears…I say it all the time & it really does work
