You’re Not Lost and Michael Bublé Video

Tags: ,

“You are not alone.”

I don’t think I can put into words what I want to say. Fortunately, this song Lost sung by Michael Bublé already did.

God is good and things come at the right time, like this song that I listened to all weekend. And like the way “the light comes pouring through many of you” in this community. What a difference it has made to me and many others to know “you are not alone.”

“It can tear your soul apart.”

Pain can tear us apart. But that’s not the worst part. It’s seeing what happens as a result.

The pain is invisible. So it’s underestimated. Usually undertreated. It leaves people feeling like they are alone since “nobody knows.” Some things tearing at my soul the last few days:

  • I’ve heard from people whose spouses mock them for their pain. If you have a supportive spouse or family, just imagine your life without that. Imagine if the relationship were destructive instead.
  • A mother of a little one with JRA says teachers don’t understand about how holding a pencil hurts. And how being in constant pain affects her. Several parents have told me their kids live with the same constant pain I feel.
  • In the rheum chat yesterday, a patient said that a pain management doctor is not accessible in her healthcare system because she has inflammatory arthritis. Pain management is not available with that diagnosis. Disease treatment itself is supposed to be sufficient. Doctors I’ve met act as if that were the case. They don’t know.

“We’ll get lost together. Until the light comes pouring through.”

FriendsTogether, we have the opposite. Somebody does know. When we have one another, it’s like someone else has walked limped in our shoes. We’re not lost.

Like all the different people in the video who were alone in their pain until they wandered into the hallway, we might wander onto Google or Facebook. Social media is like that hallway – only online. Coming into the hallway, we are no longer alone. “You are not alone. And I am there with you. And we’ll get lost together. Until the light comes pouring through.” 

I need to dedicate this blog to Amanda who showed me this video and my dear friend Barb who introduced me to Michael Bublé and to my dear friend Leslie who helps me so much by standing by me, trying to understand all that has happened to her friend who got RA.

Excerpts from Lost
‘Cause you are not alone
I’m always there with you
And we’ll get lost together
Until the light comes pouring through
It’s when you feel like you’re done
And the darkness has won
Babe, you’re not lost
When your world’s crashing down
And you can’t bear the cross
I said, babe, you’re not lost
Life can show no mercy
It can tear your soul apart
It can make you feel like you’ve gone crazy but you’re not
Things have seemed to change…
‘Cause you are not alone
And I am there with you
And we’ll get lost together
Until the light comes pouring through
It’s when you feel like you’re done
And the darkness has won
Babe, you’re not lost
And the world’s crashing down
And you cannot bear the cross
I said, baby, you’re not lost
