Quoting Chroma Hex [+1]:" Alright, I'll give my story. I'll try to keep it short, I tend to ramble lol. I've been in pain all ... [snip!] ... this, because when it gets bad I'm so depressed I can't stand it. I literally have no one to talk to and no one understands. =["
Awww hun, I'm so sorry =( I get what you mean, that no one understands. It's really hard to talk to someone when they don't get that you hurt ALL the time. They really don't understand what that means, and they look at you like you're just being a wuss, or like they expect it has to get better at some point. They don't really understand or believe that it really just always hurts.
I know I had pain as a kid. The Dr said it was arthritis, but I suspect that was just a guess at the time. I've been checked for RA, so I don't think that's it.
I think the really hard part of something like this, is I keep thinking "it won't get better." As in, when you have the flu ,or an infection, or something like that you know it will go away. It hurts NOW, but it won't always hurt. With something chronic I get down because I feel like I'll never feel better, I'll ALWAYS hurt, and it makes it hard to look forward to things.
