Chronic Pain Bites Elephant Balls and My Life
This is just a place for me to vent about my life. In case something happens to me I want my family to know my deepest thoughts. I am married, we have mine yours and ours children. Our family dynamics are crazy. I have a disease called DISH and I suffer from chronic pain from it. I have had so many operations that I just stopped counting. I try to live each day as my last. Never look back, keep on . 
Just Me
I am having a hard time dealing. As I am sure my husband and kids are too. I have a disease called DISH (diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis) . First off < I do not want the” Get well’s , Hope you feel better or the pity. That is not the purpose of this story. . I have suffered with chronic pain for about 12 years.

CHRONIC ILLNESS

Having a chronic illness and chronic pain is so hard to deal with. Not only for the patient but also for the family around them, I like to call them the silent victims. I decided to start this blog or just writing in general because I have so much going on in my mind and I just don’t know how to cope with it.  Currently I’m in this situation where I can’t breathe unless I lay down.  Granted I’m lucky to be alive but it’s very difficult taking care of three kids,a husband, and a dog from a laying down position. Shit I can’t even take care of myself. Having chronic illness and chronic pain is there a difficult for the people around me to understand because sometimes I don’t even understand it myself. A lot of times I wonder what I did to deserve what is going on with my body and I just think why me.  A lot of time people around me just don’t want to take the time to learn about my issues which are aplenty.  As I’m sitting here knitting a scarf ,which is so unlike me, I am trying to figure out a way to get better faster. It seems like the last 10 years of my life I have all that about how to get better faster.
