    Question

    What story do your scars tell?

    I saw an article last night that really made my head (metaphorically) explode. To summarize, a teen cancer survivor’s yearbook photo was photoshopped to erase her port scar from chemotherapy. Thankfully, the image was eventually fixed. But what message does that send? That scars need to be hidden for the benefit of other people? 🤯

    Which leads me to this question for you: What story do your scars tell? Do they tell a story of bravery or struggle? Do they remind you of what you’ve been through or is there a layer of shame when you see them?

    🌪 My main PICC line scar definitely says, “you’re still here.” And I’m not hiding it from anyone!!

    I love all these men, that want to chat, just to find where u r from, if u r married, etc..

    They probably don't even have anything wrong with them IMO

    I've blocked soany men in the last 2-3 days, wow.

    I talked to one person regularly on here and this is supposed to be a support app???

    Where's the support???

    Now I know why I stay away and only check in periodically, it is me, and I knew it.

    I hate Chronic Pain and Sickness, it never goes away, I had to call in to work because I just can't go, the pain is pulsating, I just want to be normal, if it isn't one thing with us, it's another, my body is GOING to make me rest, I noticed the other day how much standing hurt, I try and overlook my pain and sickness and be ok, and fine, but, I'm not and NEVER am.

    I have
    Congenital Hydrocephalus,

    I love sports, Football, Basketball, Soccer, I was adopted.

    Looking to meet other fellow Chronic Pain Sufferers to get to know and maybe become friends with.

    I don't have a lot of support, care, or love, or I don't feel it

    ***NOT LOOKING FOR HAVE U
    TRIED THIS, THIS, AND THIS***

    ***LOOKING FOR SUPPORT, CARE,
    ENCOURAGEMENT, ACCEPTANCE***

    I will say I'm not good at giving support or being a friend, because it isn't given to me.
