Losing Support

One of the most important things a chronic pain patient needs is someone who believes them that they are in pain. Someone who emotionally supports them, and is there for them. Having someone like that is invaluable. It keeps the person from feeling alone, like the entire world is against them.

There is nothing more devastating to a chronic pain patient then finding out the person they have been relying upon for support as well as strength and courage to keep fighting day after day, really doesn't believe them about their condition. That all the supposed support has been a lie, an act.

I really am alone.


  1. What! That is hard Missy, I hope that it is not a real person your close to instead of cyber people. So many things can wrong in cyber space, accounts being hacked, people pretending to be other people when they are not. If its a cyber person speak to them and make sure it is them and not some douche bag fraud. be strong

  2. I wish it was someone online, it would be a lot easier to dismiss. Sadly it is someone I really relied upon every day in real life. I am hoping I am wrong, but so far it doesn't seem that I am.

  3. excellent information on rheumatic pain, chronic pain and these are very strong for people who suffer.

  4. Hugs to you honey. Call if you need me.


Thank you for taking the time to read and/or comment on my blog. For people who are chronically ill and/or in constant pain, it can be difficult to socialize as frequently as we would like to do so. Talking with others online is a way for us to socialize, chat with others, make new friends, reach out to others in similar circumstances and many more positive effects.

Knowing that someone has read my posts and commented on it, helps in many ways. The biggest two being that it helps ease the feeling of being "alone" and that no one could possibly understand. Secondly, it reminds us that others truly do care and that just feels wonderful!!

Thank you very much for taking the time to read and/or comment on my blog, it really does mean a great deal to me and is helpful too!
