So I've been experiencing one sh**ty day after another lately and with my husband deployed it's even harder to cope. I had surgery last Oct and still have a lot of local and nerve-related pain in my legs. I thought that after 6 months or so I'd feel a lot better, but that hasn't been the case. I also am active duty military and the way I've been cast aside at work has helped me to reach an all-time low.
I've posted in the past, bitched about my pain, complained about how others have treated me, blah blah ad nauseum. Tonight I thought I'd like to help us remember the little things in life that help keep us going through thick and thin.
So, what are you thankful for? I'll go first
- my husband, deployed or not he is my rock...he listens to me even if I've gone totally nuts...he never judges and he always loves me
- my cats...they're part of the family after all, and they are first in line to cuddle when they can tell I'm not feeling well...and when I've pissed off everyone else I know they're still there for me
It's way too easy to isolate and alienate yourself from others who are trying to help. Let this thread be a place where we can be reminded that there are others out there who DO care, who DO want to help...and that maybe once in a while we need to open up and let them in.
I hope you guys will reply to this thread and offer a bit of sunshine to those of us who have seen many stormy days. Thank you :-)
