I want to start by saying, I love the children in my life. The nieces and nephews who surround me are amazingly wonderful.
This isn’t a vent about how my life is better without kids.
However, just because I don’t have them, doesn’t make my life any less fulfilling. If I were to choose not to have children, it would just mean I would have different fulfilling moments in my life.
For some of us, children are a choice and for some it isn’t. Many people don’t seem to be sensitive to that.
When I was going through my tests prior to my diagnoses, I remember filling out a form asking questions like “Do you ever feel depressed?” “Do you ever have moments of anxiety”. Anti-depressents are given out like tic tac’s these days.
The reality is, depression is very real. We are not talking about a slump, where a person is having a bad day. It is an illness that can be chronic that can take over ones life. I am not here to argue whether depression exists or not. What I am here to say is, I think I, along with many other chronic pain sufferers should justifiable be allowed some sad days without judgement.
The Toronto Rehabilitation Centre offers a Chronic Pain Service for helping those who suffer from various forms of chronic pain. Apart of this program is an after hours warm water pool therapy.
I had the opportunity to try this form of therapy for the first time today. First let me say….I’m incredibly tired. You don’t realize just how much activity you are getting under water.
