Happy Mothers Day to everyone who takes time out of their busy lives to read my posts. I wanted to express my sincere gratitude to everyone who sent me a nice message wishing me a Happy Mothers Day. Between the ages of sixteen and twenty-six I thought for sure chronic pain had stolen my biggest dream of being a mother. If anyone said to me: “You will have kids, you love kids more than anyone I know!” I would give a fake smile and end up crying somewhere where I could not be found. I never dreamed at the age of thirty one I would have been given the greatest gift in the world: my daughter Kayci. I always had a shred of hope chronic pain would one day disappear: I am sorry and not so sorry to say that it never did. But, it will never take away my life and my dreams again.
I started writing this blog to show women with chronic pain that they can fulfill their dreams. I wanted to share my inspiring yet brutally honest story with the world if I could just help one person. I wanted to help mothers who have chronic pain see that there are ways to manage the pain and live a wonderful life with their children. This blog has turned into so much more. I am helping teenagers, the elderly, caregivers, and people from all over the world. Yes, my biggest dream was to be a mother and it came true and I am just beginning. You may be at a terrible place with your journey with chronic pain but a bad day/year/even years does not define you. You have no idea what the future holds for you. I believed with all my heart my life was over because of chronic pain. You must trust me that you will find a way through. You are doing the very best you can at this very moment. This is just a moment/day/week/year. If you are reading my blog and at least giving how I manage chronic pain a thought than you are much further along in your journey than you think. I love you all and I send you light, wisdom, and energy daily. Keep going.
