When times get tough, we get tougher. We just don’t always realise it at the time. With or without chronic illness, challenges can take their toll on anyone. From chronic pain, a myriad of illness symptoms, migraines, exhaustion, difficult life-events and relationship difficulties, to endless everyday stresses & frustrations, it can be overwhelming.
But we cope, we manage, we get through flares and the darker days. And we learn, we grow, and we get that little bit stronger each time. That strength will carry you through for the next challenge. Even when you don’t think you can, you will get through it. One day at a time. Your pain and your struggles today will be the strength that keeps you going tomorrow.
