Hi everyone. Exciting news today! I’ve written a short, non-fiction piece, on Vocal, about living with chronic pain. My plan is to write a series of pieces on the many aspects of living with long term pain.Β The article is around 1,200 words long.Β 

I’d love to know what you think! And would be delighted if you could read my competition entry HERE and leave a like and a comment. To like and comment, you’ll need to sign in to Vocal, which is free to do.Β

  1. Hi Harmony, I am sorry that your pain is so constant and debilitating. I left you a comment on the originating site.

    • Thanks so much, Robbie. Headed there now to take a look and respond πŸ’•πŸ™‚

  2. Hoping and praying for you. Hoping that someone shares something that can help you as well. Commented, hearted and tweeted.

  3. Wow, what a humungous effort to bear your pain to the world Harmony. My heart sank when you talked about some excrutiating days, and even the thoughts of ending it all. You are a true warrior woman for all you do, despite your days in pain. I commend you, and I know your raw honesty is sure to help others, if only someone to relate to. And that’s my mantra, one day at a time, that’s the only way I can exist now, as someone who has always been a chronic worrier. There’s way too much to overwhelm me these days, and though I’d never pretend to know your pain, I do know what it’s like to live with the pain of a shattered heart every bloody day. Please keep soldiering on my warrior sister! If need be the drugs then so be it!
    Hugs to you <3 xx
    (P.S. I never receive reply comments from you, I’m sure it’s a blogger thingee, but WordPress doesn’t send me your notifications. πŸ™

    • I so wish WordPress would fix whatever major issue this whole comments thing is, ugh.

      Thank you so much for your heartfelt words, Debby. That shattered heart pain is a doozy, and I think of you every day, my friend.

      It seemed such honesty is needed on a topic that, all too often, gets brushed under the carpet. It helps immensely to know we’re not alone.

      Thanks so much, sitsa! Hugs and a love πŸ’•πŸ™‚

  4. Thank you for sharing some of the ways you deal with chronic pain. I find your words encouraging. You are very brave.

  5. Hearted, commented, tweeted. Commisserated. I’m so sorry for what you’re going through and look forward to hearing some coping mechanisms.

  6. Thank you for sharing your story, Harmony. I know many will relate to it and find inspiration from it!

    • Sometimes, company is good! Sorry you have this too, Jacqui. Hugs πŸ’•πŸ™‚

    • Thanks so much, John. I loved your comment on the page and left a reply. Hugs πŸ’•πŸ™‚
