No one gets life completely easy. Often complication is half the time at least.

Don't assume you know what everyone is going through.

So many always assumed I was living my best life but actually I just have always been good at smiling and laughing through the pain. Pain has always been in my life. Even as a newborn I learned how to walk on legs with twisted leg bones. Only when I was 13 did the doctors figure that out. Not only did I have pain but my pain was excruciating and always a high number. At 15 I had my waist-down leg surgeries to break my bones 8 times and then be twisted straight. At 16 my best friend committed suicide when I wouldn't date him, at 17 I had severe arthritis-in my hands especially. My pain could be enough for 100 ppl with long lifetimes! Let alone one girl.
It is amazing how much you use your hands but it isn't realized until you have trouble using them.

Bed bound at 18. Last month I turned 29. 11 years like this wears on my soul. But if I can I want to help everyone with all the lessons hard learned.
My life has Never been easy but after all this time I savor every second as much as possible and count my blessings many times a day.
We choose if something stops us. Not because we can choose good health or an easy life but because we can see beyond trivial and treat all good things like the uplifting bright treasure they are.

Keep your eyes open! I promise they are there! Just waiting for you to notice them 💖✨️💕❤️

I love this!

One of the most powerful info I ever learned was that trees that deal with strong wind grow deeper roots that help them live and last and the same if they grow through a drought.

So the more difficult the road, the stronger you can become. It is a fact of life. There is comfort in that for me as my life has never been easy and all sorts of difficult struggles with Pain being a constant for 18 years now, I am 29.
I was never meant to have an easy life. And I know God has the knowledge as to why. With His help, I will see this life through and grow each day-especially at trials and tribulations only grow in this complicated body o' mine.

I choose this life, and every pitfall that goes with it.

Yesterday therapy session #Bipolar2 #PTSD with #Psychosis #GeneralizedAnxietyDisorder

So, I had my virtual appointment yesterday we discussed my abuse and we invited my mom to our session for 5 minutes. She said we should have gotten her help when she was released from the psychiatric hospital when was released. She also said I was the only who believed her. She said she doesn’t have contact with my abuser. So I called her out by saying really did u or did you not go to your grandson’s graduation party. I told her I don’t forgive you. She left after that. I got new diagnosis. I have PTSD with psychotic features, #GeneralizedAnxietyDisorder along with my #Bipolar2 . I’m not happy with the psychotic features part

Truth! My whole life is proof that if you give it your best effort, you can get a handle on life and all the obstacles that it throws at you. Enjoy the good times to get you through those hard times.

As one of my life altering quotes that I came across before my waist-down leg reconstruction surgeries said: The best way out, is always through. -Robert frost

"I see beauty in the parts of me that I used to think were broken"

Give your body credit for doing its best even if it's best isn't as good as you want.
It works hard to do even a bit of what you ask it. Appreciate your body for trying.

And give major credit to your mind for handling each struggle as well as it does.

Trying is incredibly brave even if you don't think you succeed triumphantly.

Give it time.
