When I have a bad day, being told that it could have it worse and that I should be thankful isn’t very helpful. I never said I wasn’t thankful. I am grateful I can still walk, I just wish every step wasn’t excruciating pain.
I am quite aware that many have it worse than me. It’s doesn’t mean that my pain isn’t difficult to live with. Your struggle doesn’t negate from someone else’s and vice versa.
When you start expecting to wake up with the pain every day. It’s bad enough. When you regularly have so much pain that you cannot function or walk. That’s bad. Telling me that someone has it worse, it’s solving my issue or making it better.
