If you gave up today, it’s okay. It’s okay if you were too tired or stressed out to even attempt to fight. Recognize it’s okay to fail, but pick yourself up tomorrow and say you’ll do better because you know you can.

I do not know where this originated. I saw it on a site, while researching this awful illness we have, thought it spoke volumes, and shared.

I think what a lot of able bodied people forget, is that chronic means forever/persisting/all of the time.

Especially for people with chronic pain. That pain is constant. It may vary in severity, but it is always there.

We live with it, so it rarely shows on our faces. That doesn’t mean we are fine, just because we look fine in that moment.

Chronic pain is just that, chronic.

Mom always says “Love you guys,” or is almost always inclusive. If you count the number of hearts, there are seven… one for each of us. She does that a lot. She also does seven different smiley faces sometimes. (^_^)

This is so beautiful. There need to be more parents who will recognize and accept us like yours. Thank you for sharing. ♡♡♡♡♡♡♡

As someone who has bitten their nails since they were 4, this article hit close to home. I’ve been considering that my nail biting is driven by my OCD. It’s always good to hear you’re not alone.

"Taking one day at a time is torturous for someone with a chronic illness since some days seem to last forever so I take my life minute by minute. I feel better that way as if in the next 60 seconds I might feel better."
