Embracing life with chronic pain and illnesses.


I have experienced so much during this struggle with Fibromyalgia/Polyarthralgia/Chronic Pain Disorder/IBS/etc.

IMG_3274Yet I have found the most wonderful blessing hidden within this!

The best gift ever….from my Sister-In-Law…the wheelchair obtained for my Baby Sis Funeral!

This chair has seen me through the lowest of times! It is ever with me….allowing me to be out and about with my family.

It has also opened SO many doors!  People stop and share their stories with us….they share a smile….a laugh….a tear….

This chair has become a wonderful opportunity to interact with individuals who would never let on that they too have battled….have dealt with health or other issues.

I was reminded of this again today when we stopped into a small local shop we had not yet visited.  Upon seeing me, the owner immediately started to relate….to talk about his struggle….to offer me support…..

I am beyond humbled….and SO thankful for the hidden blessings in this condition!!
