On days you absolutely can’t do anything about your experience and your plans don’t count for anyone’s sake. Most days are bad enough (you learn to manage) but days like today are worse.
In my previous post, I described pain associated with EDS/HMS to be either constant or increasing. It is never really zero, nor does it decrease as such. Well, at least that hasn’t happened in the last six years.
You learn to get through days when the pain is fairly constant, but on other days, you just have to stop and be okay with doing nothing but simply breathing through it.
Not that it helps with pain, but dark chocolate gives me a temporary burst of happiness which is so worth it on days like today. And at times, it surely helps to have friends who are so willing to just drop by to spend time with you while (and even though) you’re in pain.
