I am feeling overwhelmed on so many fronts. I'm not one to complain, but I am feeling so very alone. My family is struggling financially as we are living off my husband's disability check and I am desperately fighting for my SSI. I had doctor appointments that possibly would have expedited my case, but due to the Covid 19 crisis, it will be months before I get to see a neurologist. I live in constant neck and arm pain and have become so frustrated. I will never get better, a bitter pill to swallow, yet I'm thankful that I have a home and food to eat and a loving family. Bless each and every one of you and I thank you with all my heart for whatever positive words and thoughts you may send my way.

    Tanya, this is hard. I've read many of the comments before and agree with folks that you are already a fighter by definition. Like others I will hold you in prayer. I hope you will find generous people in your community who may help. If you have 211 there, they have a lot of resources. Also call local churches. They get called all the time, but it is why they are there. Much love and best wishes.

    Dear Tanya,
    I'm so sorry that you're in so much pain and worry. Anxiety is never easy, and neither is chronic pain. My thoughts are with you and your family, and I will happily send some healing Reiki energy across the miles. Blessings on you!

    Tanya,

    Tanya,
    You are so beautiful! Your soft features and lovely smile speak of a kind heart. I'm sorry you and your family are struggling. You have physical pain on top of emotional stress does equal overwhelm! I have had a couple of joint surgeries so I know that pain zaps all of your energy. I hope you find things that work to relax you. These times of COVID 19 don't make it easy. I will think positive thoughts for your family and especially you. Be good to yourself!

    Hi Tanya,

    Sometimes life just doesn’t seem fair. I too am in constant pain and often feel frustrated. I understand the energy it takes physically and mentally to get through each and every day. Because I can relate, without even knowing you, I know how STRONG you are and what a FIERCE FIGHTER you are. These characteristics will get you through this rough time. You may feel alone but know that myself and others are thinking of you and admiring you from a far.

    A hello to you today (May the 4th be with you - hee hee) from Minnesota. Thanks for reaching out and asking for encouragement. We all need it and need to know others are here to listen and lend a virtual shoulder and hug! What a strange time in our world right now and for those struggling with medical issues it must be really stressful. I find the uncertainty one of the hardest parts. I like to plan and not knowing when things will be more normal again is hard for me. Like you, I try to focus on what we DO have but that certainly doesn't mean we don't struggle with sadness and loss and wishing and frustration and despair. I am sending a big, tight hug to you and a warm ray of light to envelop your heart today.

    Hi Tanya,

    Hang in there, stay in the moment, and keep doing "the next right thing." As the sports saying goes, "life is hard by the yard but a cinch by the inch." Thinking of you!

    You’re not alone, but I can relate with that feeling and it’s truly an awful one. Your feelings are valid and on top of everything you’re going through, you are enduring physical pain. I am truly sorry.
    I do hope that financial and physical burdens are lifted from you soon. I have hope that there is something greater on the other side of all this for you.
    Thinking of you.

    I see so much hope in your words. It’s such an incredibly hard time for all and living with physical pain impales it that much harder. Your gratitude for your family and home and food and love is so beautiful. Hold on tight to those grateful moments. We will get through this and the other side will look different and better than before. Blessings to you and your family.

    Hi Tonya! I have to say that these have surely been trying times for many. I do believe that God only gives his toughest battles to his strongest warriors. You are already a fighter and conquerer by showing up every day thru the pain and worry. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers daily.... you are not ever alone. Be well!
