I thought I would let every one know how the trip is going and let you inside my neurotic world.
I tried to just sit down and relax at the house after I was finished with packing but to no avail.
Thoughts rolling through my head like fish in a rolling river. They are going too fast to catch. I am trying to slow them down and think with reason.
But the anxiety won and hubby sweetly gave in because he knows I won’t stop obsessing about missing the fight.
So we will be sitting in the airport for about 2 1/2 hours before we board. I really hate anxiety.
Chronic pain with anxiety creates a nightmare of constant planning for what-ifs! If I get focused on something, I cannot let it go.
Anyway, we are patiently waiting for our plane: catching up on emails and reading blogs.
I must give a shout out for American Airlines out of ILM for going out of their way to help disabled passengers.
I witnessed this with other disabled passengers and experienced it myself. Impressed so far.
So, with extra planning I can still fly even being disabled. They will use a wheelchair to get me from gate to gate.
I never dreamed that my life trials would lead me to the places I have gone. I was sure I would ever travel again!
If I can do these things, so can you.
There are many opportunities for advocacy with US Pain Foundation and the people I have worked with have been wonderful.
Don’t give up your dreams!
Your dreams may need to be modified but you can still live an awesome life!!
I’m supposed to be in Chicago around 2pm. Hopefully, enough time to venture out tonight and check the city out.
Much Love and Many Prayers,
If you can help with travel expenses for the chronic pain support group leader training I am going to this weekend I would be forever grateful.
Help my mission of starting a chronic pain support group.
