I'm having a very difficult time staying positive through my chronic pain, along with my back conditions I've developed in the past couple months something wrong with both of my knees (I can barely walk, I see another ortho surgeon on the 24th), my hips are unbearable, I can barely move my neck and have developed carpal tunnel in both hands. Like most of you the only time I'm not in pain is the couple hours a night where I'm able to sleep. I don't look forward to waking up every morning because I know my day will be filled with pain, I'm having alot of difficult trying to stay positive I'm only 25 this is not how my life was supposed to end up. My husband wants to be supportive but you can only listen to someone cry about being in pain for so long. I just don't know what to do anymore to see the bright side of things...any advice?
