Do not confuse my bad days as a sign of weakness. Those are actually the days I am fighting the hardest. This is for anyone in my family who is struggling through a chronic illness, dealing with a heartache or disappointment, or grieving.
my fibro pain was bad on this day; I cried because I hurt so bad all over my body. Went to Good Friday service anyway. My pain was nothing like what Jesus willingly went through for me, for my salvation forever. Thank You, God, Jesus, Holy Spirit.
Validation is a calming comfort to those dealing with chronic pain. Even though it doesn't take away the pain, it does let the person know that you empathize with them. Just saying the words, "I believe you" can do so much for a person.
