MY FIBROIDS STORY

My doctor prescribed birth control pills to regulate the hormones. While other women haven't had issues with the pill, it hasn't been my cup of tea. It's frustrating to think that most doctors' solution to this issue is birth control without telling us the possible side effects.

THANK YOU NOTE.

That won't be easier .I'm rather a very weak woman that is constantly trying to exist. Barely surviving . At this point in my life,I always wonder what it would be like to be pain free.I'm in a constant battle with my own body every other time. when I'm not enduring extreme abdominal and lower back pain that makes me feel like I'm in labor,I am struggling with an extremely heavy menestrual flow. When I'm not battling migraines or clustered pain throughout my body not forgetting the forever bloating ,I'm dealing with so much pelvic pressure and even though that comes with a prize that is the urge to frequently use the bathroom,other times i can't get my body to pass whatever call that was. It's frustrating .

“BUT YOU DON’T LOOK SICK…”

In other words, I'm just going to take it as a compliment because I look fine to you. Because I am a good actress for playing the fine role so well.The more awareness there is for illnesses like multiple sclerosis, Crohn’s disease, fibromyalgia, PCOS etc., the less judgment there will be for us living with these invisible illnesses.

I CANCELED TODAY. LET’S TRY AGAIN TOMORROW _LIVING WITH CHRONIC PAIN

Featured

living with Chronic Pain every day is an adventure. It feels more like a roller-coaster. Sometimes it's up, other times it's down here _mostly down for me.No, the pain meds don't always help. Pain is my constant companion even when I'm on medication. I just try to fake smile to hide my desperation because I know you don't care anyway.

THIS IS MY BULLYING STORY. . .

Don’t let them get to you. They just want to break you. Hang on in there. No one knows your story. They don’t even know half of what you’ve been through and they are so quick to judge you. You are beautiful. I know you are. I was too. I just didn’t get anyone to remind me that.

WHEN I SAY “I AM FINE” …

I don't feel well but explaining it doesn't lessen my pain sweetheart. I will still feel every bit of it. I'll still cry silently. And you will still doubt my illness and worse dismiss it like everyone else. So I will just say, I am fine.

LETTER TO MY EXTENDED FAMILY – who think I’m just Lazy.

You all say I'm lazy. But what you don't know is, every new day brings a new set of issues for me. Some days I can't get out of bed. Not that I'm lazy, but because I'm Sick. Sick of Living. Do you know I have Chronic pain, Endometriosis, PCOS-that also causes my Insulin resistance and chronic fatigue syndrome? I want you to know that some days I am not excited about life. I just try to survive. I want to be Okay like your children. I want to see my dreams come true, I want to advance my education - I want to make Mama proud. But I need to Stop feeling Sick first.
