i was feeling rather sorry for myself lately, not being able to eat normally and a bit of a pain would do that to you. but i just realized how annoying i’ve became since been diagnosed with my condition. i constantly complain to my better half, feel depressed and unhappy. it must be very stressful for him trying to comfort me as well as running business and looking after the kids. my condition isn’t that bad that’s what i’ve learnt today after talking to one mum at my son’s preschool. a year ago her partner been in a major car accident and been left with titanium rods for her spine, broken legs and is on the list of painkillers and medications for the rest of her life. i can control my condition with diet and few drugs, but this woman will be in pain for the rest of her life. so from now on i am going to stop whining, apologize to my husband for being difficult and always look on the brighter side.

  • I am not sure what your condition is but good on you for stepping outside your shoes and looking in on yourself. Being able to critique your behaviour and consider the ones you love. I am sure that you are worse off than many others. A positive attitude helps in so many ways.


  • It’s a great way to approach things. There is always someone worse off. Make sure you also give yourself time to work through your own emotions though. Seems like you may have done that. All the best.


  • A great way to look at things, as I say to people we all have our own story’s and paths to walk.


  • There’s always someone worse off than you.


  • well at least you know what is going on!


  • im not going to complain any more


  • There are always going to be people who are better off or worse off than us, but we are ultimately all responsible for our own happiness. Sorry that you haven’t been well. I hope that you improve soon.
