As chronically ill as I am these days, sometimes there are hours or days where the pain level reaches levels beyond imagination…but must be endured as best as I can. Long ago, I discovered that inspiration/encouraging quotes, written down or printed and stuck to my bathroom walls and mirror as well as bedroom walls and car dashboards.
I may not believe them when I see them. But they stick with me somehow… they bring me peace as I practice deep breathing exercises and meditation techniques I learned long ago from reading Dalai Lama books. The pain lasts…as do the quotes as I see them again and again (after all, you cannot avoid the bathroom, bedroom or car for very long).
Now, I have a blog that contains JUST quotes. I started the blog for me – so that I would see new quotes each day and go back to them whenever needed. www.bellaquotes.wordpress.com has nearly 300 entries I believe and I hope they encourage those who follow the blog. Honestly however, they encourage ME.
Here are some quotes that I wanted to share with other LYMIES and those who try, with their good hearts, to understand this illness. Having a crappy day, or DAYS, mean lots of quotes. I hope at least one encourages you as well!
