Since I developed chronic pain and fibromyalgia, I often feel like I’m doing a lot of work to go nowhere. I often use the phrase “treading water” to my doctor’s and my therapist to describe how I’m feeling. Time blends together for me since every day involves pain. It’s hard to keep track of what day it is for me. I’ve spent a lot of time in the last few years treading water and just trying to keep my head above water. It’s only been in the last few months that I’ve found my joy again. I still have more joy and passion to rediscover, but I’m on the right path now. I’ll get there. My goal is a happier, healthier, brighter future. I thought this quote summed all of this up really well and wanted to share it.
