Wow! This video brought a tear to my eye. Being in pain all the time is hard and this week has been tough. I often want to give up fighting the pain, to stay in bed and let it consume me but I know I have an amazing life. A fantastic husband who doesn’t bat an eye lid at having to help me dry my hair or get me out of the bath, an understanding family who are always there to talk to, friends who will even offer to cook for me and, although I moan, a job I do love. There are many other chronic pain suffers who have it worse than I do, I’m one of the lucky ones. My chronic illness makes me thankful for the things I do have, I can’t take anything for granted like I used to and it has given me a different outlook on life.
