No one wants a moaner.

Hello me lovely pals, well wont go into detail as im in quite alot of pain and I know you wouldnt believe it from the photo but thats what fibro and M.E and gastric problems do, make you look like nothings wrong with you, whe inside you feel terrible, but like the title dont want to moan cos then everyone thinks your a misery guts and I dont wanna be one of those!!! I took Stephen to the woodhorn colliery museum, this morning, its only 8 miles from me, and its really a good day out,mind we were only there an hour, but theres some great stuff to see, including this miner having a wash!!...........................well I had to didnt I !!!!! have a great evening whatever your doing, sending me biggest huggies to you all xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Oh I believe you. I also suffer the unseen pain of Fibro and IBS alongside Narcolepsy.
We get up and function because what else can we do! And because we appear to be 'functioning' it can be hard for other people to understand just how debilitating these problems really are.
I'm sending a cyber hug and healing thoughts to you.

Take care

Hi lovely,
You moan all you want, I think it does us good to write it down sometimes. I don't know much about fibro? but it must be very difficult to get people to understand your pain when you look so healthy.
Not a pretty site, that miners bum!!
Made me laugh though ;)
Love,melly. xxx


Oooh June - does my b*m look big in this?!! I'm hoping it wasn't a real live Miner?!!!

Throughout all the pain, you have a lovely smile, and a great sense of humour. You're an inspiration.

Alessandra said...

hahahahaaaaa laughed so loud!!! That could be me in the pic, always up to something silly :o) like touching a strangers bum-bum!! You really look darn good, where the hell are the men that should wait in line for having a date with my lovely pal???????????? the all must be blind and dumb.... if I were male I would hunt you :o))))))))))) then lock you in somewhere until you agreed to be mine forever!
Take care, Sweetie, hope your pain will fade and then get lost, nasty thing it is!
Big hugs, Alessandra

Denise and Louise said...

You keep on moaning all you want - we don't mind. Being in so much pain - sometimes you have to let it out!! Don't know how you manage to keep on smiling (and such a lovely smile too).

Love the photos - made me giggle :0)

Take care of yourself - hugs, hugs and more hugs.

Re. what do I do with my photographs. Have you got PSP11? If so then I may be able to help but I am not very good at instructions. I hust do it without thinking, but when I have to tell someone how then I struggle :o)

emma mitchell said...

Ah June you look so happy with your beautiful smile ,so sorry you are having a bad time of it at the moment . Moan all you want it's good to let things out . Love visiting your blog

Carole of Brum said...

Know exactly what you mean, June, and it's not moaning it's sharing. you look gorgeous, petal, a really lovely couple of photos. I did wonder what was going on in that first photo before I read your post!!!! LOL. So much of disability and disabling illness is invisible, and that makes it harder for well people to understand, so maybe your post will help people to realise that just because someone looks well it doesnt mean that they are, or that they go home and don't suffer horribly afterwards. Feel better soon, gentle hugs coming your way. CoB

heidy said...

Your not moaning sweetie,you just said what you feel,we all do!
I have a nice with fibro and son with ADHD,so I know what your mean!
Sending the biggest cyber hugs ever your way !!!!

Lorraine said...

Sometimes you need to have a good old moan, and if you can't do it with us then who can you moan to??!!
I'm sorry you're in so much pain June.The photo's look great and you have the most gorgeous smile!
Sending you a big hug.
Lorraine xx

Mette said...

You bad girl - leave the poor man's bum alone hehe.
Hope you are feeling better. I don't know how bad you are suffering as I don't have the illness but I am sure it must be terrible. My stepmum suffers from Lupus and the pain is killing her :(.
At least you can still smile which is a good sign (you have a sense of humour which even pain can't destroy). Sending you HUGE BEAR HUGS sweetie

Elaine Stark said...

Your photos are fabulous. We are all ears so just say how you feel. Hope things pick up soon. Elaine

Annie said...

Magda said...

Dear june,
I am sorry to hear that you have these problems.
I'll think of you and take good care of yourself!!!!
Enjoy every beautiful moment!
Have a lovely week

Anonymous said...

Lol, fab photo June! I know what you're going through as my daughter has ME and fibro.With two little girls to look after she really struggles at times and is in constant pain. I was told last year that 'all my problems' were due to me having fibro but I don't suffer like some people do so I'm not convinced I have it - I think it's more old age with me, lol!

Hope you feel some relief soon.

Viv's Visuals said...

Flippin eck Juney! Me eyes nearly popped out of me head when I saw the first pic!!! LOL Glad you had a nice day - I been to Trentham gardens today - met Mobunny and her OH - it's becoming a three times a year meet up place!!!!

Colinda said...

See, I never thought it was moaning at all :) In fact what you are doing is helping raise awareness. I had no idea about these illnesses. And you are right, if people cant see it, then they have no idea what you are living through each day.

My dad was born with 2 perforated eardrums, which has driven him mad all his life, suffering with earache, balance problems and deafness and no one knew when he was a boy. He always said if he had a limp, or a scar then people would know what was wrong.

No one judges, but you are right if you put on a brave face then no one knows your good days from your bad either.

thanks for sharing, I think in blogland we are all here for each other, and much of it is about sharing part of our lives too :)

Take care hun, big hugs,


Joey said...

Awww hunny biggest of hugs to you, I wish people could be more tolerant and much more understanding of these unseen illness and disabilties, just because its not visual doesnt mean its not there, Have it all the time with my son, drives me insane! Joey xx

Tammy said...

Sending you good thoughts and prayers! Glad you explained the picture, I was wondering!!

Desire Fourie said...

Rosietoes said...

Sending you some hugs June. I have fibro and gastric problems so I know a bit of what you are going through, especially the bit where you look ok but feel absolutely rotten.
I hope your day out helped a little, it's half the battle just getting up and moving around. I hope that the medicos can find some regime of treatment that will help you feel much better soon.
