Those who know me know I was diagnosed with congenital degenerative spinal stenosis a while back. The pain I live with is a burden I loath to share with anyone. The look in the eyes of people I care about when they glimpse just a hint of the pain is unbearable to me.
So, I hide away. Stoppped posting here because I couldn't bear to speak about my garden I missed. (I'm thrilled my husband is building a new one for me.) Stopped talking to people who couldn't understand and kept telling me that I had to work harder to find a "Cure." The truth that there isn't a cure for me was too much for most people in my life to handle.
Now I am back here, and hearing about old rosy forum friends living with untolerable pain and my heart breaks. Pain makes me feel isolated, I'm sure that I am not the only one who feels that way.
Maybe together we can share the burdens and find solace in eachother.
We can't take away eachothers pain, which would be my wish. But we can let eachother know that we aren't alone/
So, here I am ready to listen and be supportive of anyone who needs it. You are always welcome to email me privately of course, but I am here as well.
