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."
