My invisible disease is more real than your imaginary medical expertise. LOL this is for all the family members that believe "they" know chronic pain illness is curable or not real.

Rheumatoid arthritis

Chronic illness, chronic pain, invisible illness - Saying that you're okay is so much easier rather than explaining all the reasons why you're not!

there are degrees of coping and sometimes you just don't cope

but we still need to live Everyday strive to enjoy life. Days like today can SUCK IT though. Sick of flares and my inability to force my body to suck it up.

Life with Fibromyalgia/ Chronic Illness. O how I wish people understood when you cant do something because you're in more pain then they can see.

My pain is real. In this age of technology, ignorance is a choice!

Fibromyalgia and other chronic pain diseases. Ask.I want you to understand why I am no longer the old me. You can't be in pain every day for years without it affecting your personality.

I sure relate to this.  I was just told this recently ):  some people just don't understand!

Not Antisocial. Just exhausted from fighting a chronic disease. Okay I'm a bit antisocial.

Crohns problems--It is also extremely difficult to watch a loved one, especially your own child, suffer like this. I feel as if my hands are tied.  I'd do anything to help my dear daughter be relieved.

I dream of deep long sleep . I dream of pain free days . I dream of understanding . I dream of compassion . I dream of th person I was . I dream of waking up to my old life to find that all of this has been a dream and I am me again.

Strong is fighting! It's hard, & it's painful, & it's every day. It's what we have to do. And we can do it together. <3

Life with Fibromyalgia/ Chronic Pain: Strong is fighting . It's hard and it's painful .

Some days I feel like I don’t have a choice, but I do. I could give up, be depressed and stop trying, but my choice is to keep trying. I know it never ends or goes away, but neither does my determination to have a life again.

Fibromyalgia won't stop me from living my life and i may have days i can't do as much but i won't stay in bed and feel sorry for myself. Life goes on and God gives me strength!
