Page going PRIVATE!

Thursday, April 17, 2014

To make a very long story short I will make this clear. Last night two people I will leave unnamed since they know who they are said something to set me off. Because of that my page will now be private. When you are in pain protocol don't matter to you. You want the pain gone! One remedy does not fit all. So said Christy Brown; my former primary. She don't think it will work for me. I am on my last legs with cortisone shots. Christy Brown believes therapy and orthotics won't help me.

    I am so sorry that you were hurt. Many times, we say things trying to be helpful, not realizing that someone else may find our ideas offensive, impractical, or just plain downright frustrating. Life is not a one-size-fits-all proposition, yet we often give advice as if it was. I'm so sorry this has left you feeling sad. We hope you'll be back soon. There's many more that care.

    I am sorry that you had to turn your page private because of someone's comments. I know how you feel about wanting the pain gone and trying almost everything to get the pain to go away. I have people that suggest things to try or tell me certain things won't help all the time. It does get old and can make you angry.

Hope things arel better.

    I don't know your former primary, Christy Brown, or the 2 others who has offered you unwanted advice, but it makes me sad that you have been hurt by 'friends' who don't understand. Though I wish you would reconsider going private, I understand we all do what we feel we must.
You do know that you can remove comments, block 'friends' or people who are not uplifting and report comments, etc., to Spark People, don't you? If you need anything, please let me know. Hopeful Hearts is still here for you, either way.
