Those that know me know "I'm ok" is just my way of keeping the pain inside. Living with daily pain is not an easy thing to do & it takes a strong person to live like the pain isn't there. ~ Audrey Siebert
People who are ill and still find joy live by this motto. That said, we also go through the entire grief process sometimes HUNDREDS of times. We may accept our life the way it is, but we also grieve the losses, look for ways we can fulfill our dreams.
