Hello. I started this new conversation because I am curious to know if there are any other young mom's out there who suffer from chronic pain. I am 23 yrs old and I have chronic pain that will only get worse as I get older. My daughter is 6 yrs.old and I am not able to do a lot of the things that mom's are suppose to do. I am not allowed to lift my daughter up because I have had shoulder surgery. I don't have hardly any grip in my hands because of mult. surgeries. It bothers me that I can't be the mom that I want to be ...or the mom that my daughter deserves. Thank GOD for my family if it weren't for them I don't know what would happen. I am also a single mom so I was also wondering if any other young mom's find it hard to date. In my experience most guys are scared to date me just because I have a child, and if that doesn't scare them off my health does. I don't know how this is suppose to work, so I hope it works! :-) I would just like to talk to other young mom's who are in the same boat I am in. So please feel free to write but just keep in mind I would like this conversation to be respectful of everyone's views. Thank you and I hope to hear from you soon!!!
