Today life is hard, and tears flow cascading into a pool of lost dreams and hopes. I struggle between my desire to "pull it together" and my need to just be honest with where I am right now. As a person with chronic migraines, I have watched many of my dreams and hopes take second place to pain. I have watched relationships and activities that I love being a part of take a second place to pain. I have seen my financial security swept away because of pain. Although I believe that there is grace and hope to be found in this journey, there are times when the hopeful adult gives way to the fearful and lost child.
