Ellen Lenox Smith’s book “It Hurts Like Hell: Living with Chronic Pain and Having a Good Life Anyway.”
At age forty-eight, something went seriously wrong with my body.
Suddenly, I couldn’t work, swim, or even walk. I felt betrayed, my life cut so short.
What would YOU do? Now, I have a body that falls apart. This triggers
unbearable pain that also causes dizziness, brain fog and disconnect.
And the thought that hurts me most—is that this will only get worse!
Every day is a challenge. I would wither if I felt sorry for myself.
I choose to find happiness in my day, I reach out to try to help others.
I consider myself lucky (no kidding!) despite this tough “gift” that was
given me to live with. I accept that life remains a gift each day to treasure.
DO YOU BELIEVE ME? Accept the challenge in the book, and try to walk in my shoes.
