    Moving forward can mean leaving the past behind. We’ve come so far and yet we still have so much to learn. What is something helpful you’ve learned?

    Being gentle with ourselves can be really tough especially when we reflect back and judge ourselves. It is so easy to be mad at ourselves for not knowing things when we were younger. But it has to be that way. If we already knew everything, there would be no room for us to grow in this life. Please share something helpful or useful you have learned along the way. We can learn so much from each other!

    Thanks to you all. Thanks for how you have been working to support each other!

    Speaking of thanks for all, I was hoping we could acknowledge everyone who comments below in this post and others. I know it seems like a small gesture, but many people here have never opened up to anyone before and being open and honest with strangers can be quite scary. So, if we could show our gratitude by giving their comment or new post a simple ❤️or reply I’m sure they would really appreciate your support.

    Let life surprise you…what’s an obstacle you have that is holding you back from happiness?

    Ever gotten something you wanted, and it didn't give you the happiness you were expecting? Or you got something you didn't want, and you loved it? We assume we know what is good for us but life has a way of surprising us all the time. Does anyone have a story where this sort of unexpected result happened?

    1,000 members and growing strong…your leaders Moshe, Chris and Neeta thank you for your support and helping build this community!

    We love reading your posts, seeing your smiling faces and hearing your stories. Good or bad, what we share with each other is vital to making a difference as this community was designed to find others who are living with multiple health challenges like we all do. These combined together can make our lives unmanageable, and Moshe started the group to create a community so we can empathize and support each other. It started with a modest goal of finding 20-30 people who walk similar paths of the same or different physical and/or mental problems. But now we are excited to have had all of you join us and feel very blessed that so many of you have found us here!!! We’re honored to now be a part of a group that is growing rapidly, and having new people post and follow our posts.

    Over this time we have made over 100 posts ourselves with memes and images, sharing our stories: what we’ve been through, how we have struggled, what we have learned, and what has helped us along the way. Some of our posts have new writing pieces that are pretty deep and we try to be as open and honest as we can be. Other posts simply have a few sentences reflecting on the meme or the image. And we’ve offered a number of questions which have encouraged great discussions. We would be honored if you were to scroll down and find the posts, which all have an image or meme.

    Many current and new members have also shared their stories, struggles, frustration, worry, fear, and lessons learned & successes. We all try to acknowledge, relate, empathize and support each other. It takes courage to share with strangers but we are non-judging, accepting and supportive of each other. We would love to see more posts from all of you so we can get to know each other, and/or please respond to each other's posts with a ❤️or a comment. When you create a new post sharing your picture or adding an image at the top attracts more attention, and then hashtags at the end reach other groups with members who share similar challenges like you do!

    We look forward to learning more about you all. We commit to respond to as many posts as we can, always ❤️new ones and try to be there for you. And we will keep making new posts to share and also post questions for you all to engage in conversations.

    Sending blessings for great health & healing, peace & serenity and connection & support.

    Moshe @maxtempo
    Chris @chrislynn1
    Neeta @littleredrose

    **Before posting this one of us had all memes and images disappear, but the other said they are all there. If you too can’t see the images please comment or DM one of us as soon as you can! Thanx…**

    My health is a full time job because...

    Unless you live with a health condition, it’s really hard to wrap your head around how much time actually goes into managing it on a daily basis. There are endless appointments, phone calls, tests, procedures, treatments, scheduled rest times, therapies, and hospital stays.

    So we’re curious: What makes your health a full-time job? What aspect of your condition takes the most time to manage?

    For me it's calls to and from the pharmacy going over prescriptions, which seems like 30 min every day. I take 15 different medications and although I have auto- refills they still call me every time something is up to be filled for that month. I feel like I'm also calling doctor’s back and forth about new refills for things that are running out, prioritization, appeals to insurance, then discussions about new med’s side effects… And I also research possible new meds and talk to other doctors, friends, patients, and pharmacists every time before I start to add a new med (or get off and old one)

    The holiday season is upon us…Does it make you feel joyful and happy? Or does it make you sad and depressed? It stirs up a lot for me…How about you?

    Are you really looking forward to seeing family and friends? or Do you dread being alone? Do you love hearing Christmas songs on the radio or at the mall? or Do you just wish it would be 2022 already? For me it makes me feel a mixture of these…I am looking forward to going to see my mom and family this weekend…But then I will come back home and can feel sad, lonely and isolated! I celebrated Hannukah weeks ago and In the past I have felt like so many others are being festive and celebrating Christmas with a decorated house, sparkling tree, and presents for all, without me …especially when I was younger! What are looking forward to do this weekend? I send you all blessings for a festive, joyful and special time!

    I find that it is a continual part of my journey to try to hold on & stay afloat…w/ my chronic pain it is a true challenge but I try hard every day

    We are fighting invisible battles others can’t see and sometimes TRYING can just be DOING THE NEXT RIGHT THING, not worry about what others can say who don’t understand chronic pain and who sometimes judge and demean us. But we can ignore them and be gentle with ourselves, to love and believe in ourselves. This is a lifelong journey and I often have to try to do so one day at a time. I know pain, I know struggles and I hear you, I believe in you, and can relate. I’ve been there and I have hope and believe we all can survive and thrive, overcome challenges, and become stronger!

    I am a fighter, I am a warrior, and so are you. Just being here and trying to find others walking the same path means you care about yourself and want to feel better! … and many times if we try hard enough we will succeed! If we try hard enough the sky's the limit, it starts with self love then continues into good self care, and learning and believing how to love ourselves. Some days I have to try very hard to love myself and be gentle with myself, but it’s so worth the effort!

    Most days I try to stay positive, try to hold on, try to stay afloat, try to find my flow and balance, try to not let my pain take over and be the only thing I think about. I try to welcome each day with hope, optimism, promise and know that I am capable of doing more than my body tells me I can do. I feel it more those nights, the pain can catch up with me…but I must give myself credit, to acknowledge what I've accomplished. The hardest thing is to be motivated and fight through the pain when my body just wants to stay stuck here sitting.

    But being active doesn’t just lift my spirits … It also provides periods, even just moments, when I don’t think about my pain. And my doctor says that walking and exercising actually helps my body even though my mind tells me it is going to feel much worse, that I will be bringing on more pain.

    It’s a daily battle to get out and go for that walk. Yet that is the very thing that partially helps… even though I fear that it will hurt. My mind tells me that exercising will just make me hurt more at the end of the day…but I have ways I can practice self care, ways to treat the pain…so I try to believe I can do so, that l have been through worse. I try to just get through the days knowing I have just Done The Next Right Thing. I went for that walk, I got to the gym, or just simply got out of bed and took a shower. I've practiced self care that shows I love myself. Yes, I TRIED but I succeeded beyond my wildest imagination!

    Pushing through challenges is what makes you grow ... We are stronger and very blessed by the journeys we’ve taken and obstacles we have conquered!!

    Being uncomfortable and uncertain have been challenges I have faced very regularly, and dealing with things that are “hard”has been something I try to push through and fight almost every day. But I believe by facing these things head on I have grown and continue to grow. I don't go out and search for hard, uncertain and uncomfortable situations but they sure have found ways to find me!!! I find that practicing self care and self love gives me hope... and faith that I’m blessed with no more than I can handle... if I just fight and believe, I’ll be just fine! I have found happiness in my acceptance of the cards I've been dealt and knowing that I won't just survive...I can thrive!

    Sending blessings for your great health & healing and that you may find peace & serenity! and I'm sending big virtual hugs your way!

    Comparing our journeys to others can weigh on us & lead to self judgement & shame. My journey is unique & I need to remind myself I’m doing just fine!

    It is so easy for me to beat myself up because I feel I’m not accomplishing enough…and thinking other people with the same diagnosis seem to be much more productive and successful. But many friends and family members regularly remind me that just staying alive, dealing with my pain and taking care of myself is a victory. I have learned that it never helps for me to compare myself with people who seem to be capable of doing more…because this just brings on very strong, almost debilitating shame & self judgement and leaves me feeling emotional pain that just adds to the physical pain I already have!

    So I try to always remind myself that I am doing just fine dealing with the hardships I face and I am practicing great self care to love myself exactly as I am… and accept that I am unique & different and I’m doing the best I can. It leaves more room to accomplish things that are within the limitations I have due to physical pain!

    I send you all blessings for moments of peace, serenity & less pain, and good health & healing!
