A quote from a blog review wherein we are advised that “living with chronic pain makes you awesome”. After just living through several days of much worse than normal pain, accompanied by serious shivering at one point, I would just like to say that awesome is NOT how I feel. Exhausted is how I feel. Frustrated, angry, upset that I don’t have enough energy to get dressed so I can go down and get my mail. Had to cancel Friday’s homemaker, and today’s homemaker cancelled due to illness, so no mail-getting for a week. No trash going out, either, or laundry getting done, or shopping.
‘Chronic pain’ and being ‘awesome’ are not words I associate with one another, ever. Just so you know.
