For Added Strength

For three years I have had severe chronic headaches and facial pain. I've had many doctors tell me they didn't know what was wrong with me, that it was made up, or worse. My mom has been my rock and my major source of support throughout this whole ordeal. This past summer after hearing about The Giving Keys, I knew I wanted one - but I wasn't sure what word(s) I wanted. I eventually landed on STRENGTH after my mom told me that I was the strongest person she knew and LOVE because I knew that my mom would be the person that I eventually would give my key to.

Over the last 4 months, I've come to think of my Giving Key as my "Superhero cape" and wear it whenever I feel like I need added strength. This fall I finally got a possible answer as to what is causing my pain, and though my pain has not fully gone away, I decided to give my key to my mom for Christmas because I know she has gone through as much as I have over these last three years. She told me, "I think this is the nicest gift I've ever been given."

  • Sara, I just read your story and had a big fat cry. I just got my key today from my friend and it says Fight. I’ve had a chronic headache and facial pain every day for 6 years. My ‘Fight’ was so I would fight for myself. So I would fight to be strong when I see the doctors. It’s been unbelievably hard to be told I wasn’t in that much pain, it is just something I have to deal with. I thought about giving up a few years ago. My mom is tells me the same thing yours does. I will now also think of my key as my cape! Thank you for that!
