Hi, my name is 19Stanlee77.

I hope my first ever post finds you well? Or as well as you can be....

I'm here because......

I've woken up today and like every other day I felt like a prisoner in my own body. I googled that phrase and it brought me here!

Trying to explain how tough life can be to others when every morning I start the day feeling like I've been beaten up with a baseball bat in the night is really, really tough!

I don't actually tell my ever reducing circle of friends how much I suffer very much anymore, or my family for that matter.

Why? Because I feel a bit like a broken record (as my Mam used to say).

I know talking is good... but how do you explain something to somebody that makes no sense to them?

When they experience pain it comes with a explanation and an expiry date... or to put another way, the pain will heal with time and get better (thank God!).

I think this is the reason I've joined the Mighties today...

Hi, my name is Crohnicallyill6509_. I'm here because I always return to writing/blogging and I want to be more constructive. I previously thought my words wouldn’t have impact in the vast scene of blogging but now realise all our contributions are equally important. If I can impart some information that is pertinent to even one person then my goal is achieved. I'm currently in a really high inflammatory active disease state of my Crohn’s Disease and currently on the Devils choice of treatment Prednisalone! Riding the insomnia/ exhaustion like a dodgy bumper car ride and watching my face puff out each week, even my phone is struggling to Face ID me. Im trialing a group Counselling 4 week course, which isn’t really helping with my current mental health state, but you have to engage to be deemed rational and compliant. Hoping to find clarity through sharing my story.

Hi, my name is nothingnoone9773. I'm here because I need people to talk to that don't pity me, I'm the sole caregiver for my husband who has stage IV cancer and so lonely. Because I feel useless, I'm nothing and no one, I don't matter and it's been like this since my birth. Mother literally tortured me, abused me physically, emotionally and mentally. She also didn't do anything when I was being raped for 2 years when I was 7. I need to know that I'm not the only one who feels like a waste of space!
