    • One of my issues with feeling down is that almost every thing I love to do causes pain — knitting, sewing, crochet, gardening… all cause either hand pain, neck pain, or both, often with accompanying low back pain. Then I let everything slide, because housework is a killer, and I just don’t want to do it. then I look around, everything looks like hell, and my depression deepens. All of these things reciprocate each other.

    • “You are not alone”. Yes. Yes I am alone. I’m an introvert. I don’t relate well with others. I live in a single, rented room. I have no family. I have a best friend of 45+ years, but haven’t seen them in over 4 years because he just doesn’t have the money for gas. He lives 3 hours away. It makes my heart hurt to know I will probably never see him again.

    • I feel like my chronic pain has made me lose everything.
      I was married for 21 yrs and im divorced now because i couldnt do all the things that i used to do.He never understood my pain.

    • Chronic pain is devastating!!! I was born with a genetic bone/ collagen disorder. Growing up I thought many kids would break a bone or have my back go out was the way it was! Boy, was I wrong.
      Here I am 67 years old and the pain is relentless but I carry on! I do have a wonderful husband who supports me and cleans, washes clothes and so many other things around the he house my pain prevents me from socializing as much and just walking! My pain is isolating and very few people understand my situation. Pain meds help but some days the pain is so ugly! I want to walk, run and play with my kids and friends! I would love to travel but sitting in one place to long is very uncomfortable! Ok I got that off my chest, whoo thanks for listening! My advice is listen to your body and stop what your doing. Rest, sleep (if you can), relax in your favorite chair/ recliner and try CBD gummies! Hey, they work for me. CP is not a way to live but we do it daily! Love yourself and do not be afraid to reach out to others in pain.
