How long after your injury/diagnosis did you accept the fact that your pain was chronic and be with you forever?
I am two years out and three surgeries from my back injury. I am just starting now to accept the fact that this is my new life. I'm not even at total acceptance yet and I'm sure how to get there.
For those of you who have accepted it, how did you begin to accept it ? I am having a very very hard time realizing that not only will the pain never be gone, but I will never work again.
Asa widow with three teenagers , two of them in college , and te primarybreadwiner who loved loved loved her job as an ER nurse, I can't accept the fact that I will not work again.
Any advice will be appreciated !
