Thank you, Stephanie. I'm trying to be more honest about the ups and downs of a life with invisible chronic pain and mental health disorders. When there aren't clear answers, sometimes it feels like "Who will even believe me?", but the more I speak and write my truth, the more loved and seen I feel. I spent so long in pain--covering it up--and coming across as lazy and angry. I'm glad I'm finally learning t be honest and share. 🖤
