"Nobody really cares about your accomplishments. That’s why you need to set your own goals and do it for yourself. Forget what makes your parents proud or what your friends like, what is it that makes you like yourself?"-My psych teacher (via trainhardrunfast)
I don’t have chronic pain but this artwork is so nice to look at *^*
Just because we’re not writhing on the floor doesn’t mean we’re not hurting. We’ve just gotten really good at hiding it and functioning with it, otherwise we’d literally starve in our beds.
Lived like this for nearly a year. Got super lucky that it was repairable, but feel for those who have conditions that are not. <3
YES. So many people need to see this. Just because I’m not crying- doesn’t mean it doesn’t hurt like hell. And when I say I’m in “constant” pain, I mean that I am in constant pain.
Just because you don’t see me wincing, or hear me complaining, doesn’t mean it’s not happening.
I lived a number of years with chronic pain. You don’t really get used to it, so much as you get to a point where you learn to grin and bear it.
I am sorry for the non-book related post but its been 10 minutes and I am still laughing.
