I'm sorry for doing this...

I just need support right.....now.sort of in the way that is hard(no offense) for men to understand...its not a problem to answer,an appliance to fix.....there just is no answer.

I'm need hearts, i need not to feel alone...

I'm so sick of being sick!

I'm at that in between stage. frolicking in my early thirties
.......not quite young or healthy enough to be out enjoying night life...and in a wonderful relationship but not quite healthy or sane enough to take on children 24/7..... Despite looking after others children 60 hrs a week.

I'm just sometimes feel like I will never be healthy enough to live.

I'm in so much pain daily! My head and neck feel like they are constantly stiff and cracking, my ribs feel in a vise grip...I can't breath fully. I'm so so sick of being told it is in my head!

I just want to live. I want t enjoy life. I want to stop faking it till I make it. I want to make it god admin it!!!!!

I want to make it !!!

I want to stop wading through life, I want to live in it. I don't just want survive, I want to thrive!!'

UGGGGGGG!!! I know just where you are at. So sorry too!

But, the good news is, you've taken the 1st BIG step by declaring that you want to thrive and not just survive!

Which reminds me of this...

Be patient through the ad in the beginning, then maybe he can help? Hope you do feel better soon!

Hugs to you!!!!

When you have a moment, you may want to check out the book 'The Happiness Trap' by Russ Harris. I personally find it helpful

I'm right with you tucker-bell! It sure does get tiring plastering that smile on our face everyday!! For me,I do think the holidays bring up lots of these feelings. Don't get me wrong-I have them often-but it's been especially tough past few days.

Being around family who don't understand, pushing through the exhaustion, headaches, etc. What fun!

But we have to keep trying and fighting and believe we will get to a better place

I feel alone too-I know just how you feel

Hey, Tucker-Bell!

I've been there. It's a really tough place to be!

Ugh, and that head and neck pain/pressure is just relentless. Feels like your head is going to burst, right?

Keep fighting and staying as positive as possible (I know, simple...right?). [Wink]

You're definitely not alone!

Tucker-Bell,

I spent 6 years being called crazy. Especially from my doctor and my family. My husband was my biggest crazy advocate, because he saw first hand the seizures, exhaustion the hands drawing. My loosing track of time and forgetting (divorced in 2010, diagnosed with lyme 2013)

What I have come to realize is that people just want a quick fix and unfortunately there is not one(it's a hard pill for me to swallow too). I think it's some kind of denial. I watched it from an outside perspective with my Mom when she had cancer. Everyone just thought she was faking it to get attention. Sad really:( But people do not want to hear about your pain, they just want and need your smiles [Smile] [Smile] [Smile]

I'm am angry and frustrated most of the time. But I not give up nor give in. Stay strong.
Just know you are not alone!!! Prayers and peace to you.

Suebear
