There are so many things that can cause our pain and I'm trying to cover a lot of them and I do apologize in advance if I miss your diagnosis...if you would like to have it covered...please let me know and I will gladly do some research for you. Please keep in mind that I am not sharing this information so you can self-diagnose...but to help answer some questions...to provide information and to help you get the conversation started.
Please feel free to share this information with those in your life...it might help answer some questions and it may help them to learn more about what it is you're living with and dealing with on a daily basis. With more information, maybe we can start to decrease the stigma around the "invisible illnesses" we live with.
I highly encourage you to share any of the information that reflects your life and please open the lines of communication with those you share your life with. Ask your doctor the questions you need to ask and seek your answers. The more you know...the more you grow. Learn your needs...learn what soothes your pain emotionally, mentally, and physically...learn what helps you to live beyond your diagnosis.
I hope the information shared will help you to start the conversation going and I hope too that you begin to take the steps of learning how to manage your diagnosis so it has less control in your life moving forward. We can't avoid our pain and there is no cure...but there are things we can do. I hope you'll do them for you.
take good care of you
