Why a flower?

Chronic pain is a waste of life’s precious time, its a huge hold up. But if you have to deal with it then you have to find a way to cope through the awful journey and survive it.  Before my precious implant (Professor Teddy I love you!!), I couldn’t move much without pain, everything hurt and it hurt all the time. And yet, my gorgeous friends and family kept telling me ‘but you look so good for someone who’s in pain all day!’ (Uum… thanks??). The flower really expresses it perfectly for me.  I have limited use of my hands because I can’t rattle myself or lift more than a kilo (on a good day!), sitting is most difficult and my legs can’t do alot as they seem to bug the issue, so here I am, planted in this life to just sway…

And please, don’t for a moment think that I don’t think of those who are more severely impaired or perhaps don’t have the support they need. To be honest, its this thought that motivated me to put this site together. I have a lot of help from my husband who is currently trying to re-setup our business from home and not only to help me, but to give me that bit of capacity for some essential Occupational Therapy (yes, to draw flowers!).

Sometimes it just helps to hear or read that someone understands you or that someone is feeling ‘like a flower’. And they can be a stranger… or even a website!
