Confronting the grief of chronic pain can come in small ways. Today I washed the sheets and made the bed.
It was all I could do to get it done. It was pretty much ALL i could get done. I didn't even the enough energy to take a bath. But our sheets are beautifully clean and soft. And that makes me happy.
Don't always look for big ways to fight against the grief - just make a simple goal and DO IT!
