Chronic Pain Brought me Blessings in Disguise

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.

    Hi jess, just wanted to send you a belated Happy Mothers Day. My family got together yesterday and skyped w/ my little sister (little as in 34yr old, writing professor, little sister) and although she’s due in June w/ her 1st child all of us got to say hi and wish her, her very 1st Happy Mothers Day. It was great to be able to see her and we all are looking forward to meeting a new member of the family. I hope that your dreams of having another child comes true and wanted to at least wish you a belated Happy Mothers Day! Thanks for all that u do for so many and of course for all the help and support you’ve given me. Thanks, Sam.
