We've put together a summary of this year's #livingwithpain experiment on Storify.
Check it out, and thank you for supporting us.
I had an annulment a year ago. I have 3 kids in my care. One is 6 years old, second is 5, and the last is still 2. To be honest, it’s tiring at times but I’m working hard for them. I don’t want them to live with nothing in their tummies and pockets. I guess with my work, I can sustain their needs and wants. I want what’s best for my kids.
Just recently, my two kids are looking for a father figure. I was astounded yet felt irresponsible by not giving them the chance to live without a father caring and loving them. But am I not enough? I’m doing my best for them and it should be enough. But still, that thought won’t come out from my head.
So I tried dating. I called some of my friends on whom to date. They gave me some site names but I think I’d be so desperate if I do so. So I ended up going to online dating. There I saw an ad for international dating social event. So I posted some of my pictures, trying it not be showy and agreed to attend the event.
Do you think I’ve made the right decision? Is this move a smart one? Please tell me so. I appreciate your responses!
@ReenieG @oceangirl and all of you, thank you for sharing. Caring for someone with chronic pain, especially a loved one, is not easy. It is encouraging to hear that the two of you are learning to recognize a bad day and how to work through it. Communication is important in any relationship!
And maybe it would help to read some of the articles on our website that other posters have mentioned. Yes, keep going!
The "Pain Education" section of Live Plan Be has some great resources on lots of topics that could be useful for people in pain and their friends and family.
This one is on chronic pain and sex.
