It’s easy when any movement increases my pain tenfold. It’s easier to stay in one comfortable place than to haunt the house. It’s easy to sleep the days away when sleep is my only dependable pain eliminator. It’s easy when someone who understands is a click away and the people a couple steps away just don’t get it. It’s easier to stay in my comfortable bubble in pain than deal with the rest of the world if I don’t have to.
