Everyone has a doctor in him or her; we just have to help it in its work. The natural healing force within each one of us is the greatest force in getting well. ~ Hippocrates

We recently received a letter from a good friend who’s been dealing with chronic pain and illness for years. I know there are people reading this who’ve had the same challenge.

So I offered to publish my friend’s letter in our blog with the hope those of you in similar situations will share with her your experiences, and how you’ve coped with it all. Please leave your replies to her below in the comments section.

Here’s her letter:

Hi John,

The subject: How does someone like me with chronic pain with an additional overlay of different painful conditions that come one right after another follow one’s passion? I don’t know. Maybe there is no one else going through this type of thing.

The symptoms I get often baffle health care professionals so I’m left to suffer not knowing when a particular disease will end. For the past three years and particularly the past nine months I’ve been slammed with too many very painful situations.

It is very hard to focus on joy. As for following my passion, I don’t even know what that is. And it is extremely frustrating to see quotes and articles about using one’s gifts, starting one’s business, doing what we love without worrying about what others think, etc.,

I am unable to do much of anything. Some days I cannot look at any of the above items on Facebook or other sites. It’s too depressing. I can’t find a fit for my situation.

I know that there are people with chronic pain who have done great things. But due to the condition of my body I can’t even shop for food or drive to a store and buy my clothing.

I don’t know. Just wanted to get that out there.

Thank you for continuing your sacred work.

Much Love,
