How do you guys deal with the feeling of missing out on life
How do you guys deal with the feeling of missing out on life?
@Raine14 i never looked at it that way! I guess cause its been almost 7 years but alot of things didn't hit me until last year. I'll definitely let myself grieve, I guess it took so long because I'm an extrovert.
I dont know how old you are but I know in high school I struggled with that daily, it was so hard for me because i couldnt just be a normal teen and i often was so upset about it. As of today, I spend a ton of time with my family and they understand so I dont have to over do it as much. They have become my friends, other than them I basically have none, so the fact that they just know what is going on helps. I try to do some stuff that makes me happy, like hockey. I love going to hockey games but I always know how hard it is so I do everything I can to prepare. rest all day, wear back brace, take pills, bring my pills with me, and many other pain coping things I have, and know the next day is my rest day. It took a ton of anger and sadness to get to this point. But I do what I can and more sometimes if I really want to. (sometimes lots of medicine gets me through my outings, even though I know it's not the best). I still hate I cant always participate, but I do things that make me happy instead. Since my being was so active before the pain, I still struggle with not being able to do whatever I want physically, but it has gotten better
