We all do it most of our lives whether it be through prayer or self reflection we have hope. People in chronic pain or with chronic illnesses use this tool to soften the blow in our minds that some day we will be better some day we will be without pain or immobility but someday never comes. We go through procedures and surgeries knowing post op will bring excruciating pain for at least the month following because we want to believe that after this surgery I will be better after this surgery I'll be able to live a pretty decent life.
I love hope but I hate hope also because when your simple wish for more mobility and less pain doesn't come true your hopes were all for not.
This post wasn't designed to be negative I posted it because I'm afraid of the false hopes but yet without them I wouldn't bother living another day and I take nothing for granted I'm very grateful for the things I do have.
Just wierd to think that if I don't start living my life now I'll wake up one day when it's too late with a handful of hope that I wasted too much time waiting for something that will never come. People in chronic pain and with chronic illnesses must enjoy the time now instead of waiting for false hope to make you happy. What has hope done for you good or bad did you find waiting for the day with no pain or illness is worth it? Did you find an even better way to deal with this situation?
Hope everyone has a great day 🙂 #neurogenicmuscleatrophy #Depression #Disabled #chronicalodynia #BPD
