Pain in the rain and all the day
doesn't make others feel it the same
This pain is no game to be misunderstood  It's a shame
to go through it, while some others think nothing much is wrong.
Someday it's gotta go away, and there will be a new day.

In 1991, I was diagnosed with chronic fatigue and later with fibromyalgia. No one understood it, including the medical professionals. I could not hold up a cup with one hand. I could not walk to the couch from my bed without pain and exhaustion. As the situation worsened, I saw the likelihood of ending up in a wheelchair or bedridden, unable to care for myself or my family.
That vision galvanized me toward a fight I refused to lose. I threw out the meds I was given and started work on a painting, one small brush, standing for a few minutes at a time. I increased the time daily. I then set bigger goals. When I had finished building a 20 ft wide x 40 ft long x 20 ft tall pole hay barn, I declared myself cured.
Okay, I have never regained the strength or stamina to the extent I had before, but I function. I can take care of myself. I managed to get back to police work and did that until injury forced retirement. I am now seeing a cardiologist for a new problem. Rather than give up, I intend to fight off this problem as well.
Dwelling on the pain, is like choosing to hold onto an anchor rope that is 10 feet long in 30 feet of water. Let go and swim to the surface, or drown. My point is that mindset can make all of the difference. You have to want to beat it. Believe you can and move forward.
I know it can be done. I am the proof. I share this so you know that you are not alone. Others have gone through it, and beat it.
