Dennis, I feel your pain! (no pun intended!) I have been divorced for over a year and only one date. I, too, suffer from chronic pain. There are times when I have pain so bad that I retreat to the comfort of my bedroom and ride it out. And unless you suffer from chronic pain yourself, you cannot appreciate how others are feeling. I feel as if people are so busy and overworked that they don't have the time or the energy to deal with someone else's problems. My ex described it this way.."I don't have the patience to take care of or deal with someone's illness". Maybe that's the way alot of people feel. I don't feel that way, but some do. At this time I am pursuing a course of action to deal with my chronic pain and my other health issues. Hopefully soon I will be better equipped to handle it. Don't give up, there are women out there that care for the person and look beyond the shortcomings. I ask myself often why any man would willingly want a woman with so many health issues as I have. My answer to myself is "He wouldn't!" then God reminds me that I should let Him be in charge of my future because I am a worthy child of His and a blessing to the right man. I know God is right and I need to be patient. There is a wonderful woman out there for you, just be patient and trust God. God bless you.View Thread
