What a wonderful response by Gianella to your word prompt “writing,” Brenda. Thank you for sharing the link.
Gianella, I enjoyed reading every word of your personal story and am proud of the progress you are making as a writer at such a young age. Congratulations on having written 21 articles here in such a short time and in your 21st year. Your writing and poetry is very personal and touches people in some way.
I wish you well in your writing endeavours now and in the future.
This is a wonderful response to the word prompt, Writing. Many writers will be able to relate to your journey, as a writer.
I always feel, that writing is therapeutic. I am sure, that writing about your personal experiences, might ease your struggles.
You are doing great as a writer. Wish you all the best.
Thank you for sharing.
Thanks Brenda, for sharing this.
In your poem, "THE NIGHTMARE THAT ALMOST RUINED MY LIFE" tells us of a struggle someone has just to do daily tasks, but still tries to write.
God has given this person a chance to gain back his strength and continue his calling for writing.
Then in "HOW DID I GET INTO WRITING AND DISCOVERING MY PASSION:" you tell us about your own journey.
Your passion for writing started early on in school.
In adolescence you learned to write from the heart using your own experiences.
Currently trying to earn a living with your writing, while learning that your words lessen the stuggles you face in life.
Now you are a writer who inspires others by your work.
You words are gaining attention from others.
You still dream of one day publishing a book.
You are going to continue aiming high.
We all have struggles that we cross in life. Having health issues does put a roadblock in our way, but we often find a way around it by using our writing.
I wish you the best. I'm certain with a little work, your dreams will become reality.
I'll post a link in the word prompt article.
The first part "THE NIGHTMARE THAT ALMOST RUINED MY LIFE" is also about me Brenda. I'm currently on my journey to find more clues regarding my clinical condition while still trying to write as much as possible for my dreams to continue manifesting in reality. Thank you so much Brenda and John for your support! Regards to both of you!
Gianella, I'm still searching for Brenda's article to find the link to the word prompt because I want to read your "nightmare" poem (article). But I hope I can give you a few words of encouragement. I went from a career writer (advertising, news reporting) to a career editor because at the time editing was the only job I could find without relocating.
I liked it fine, but I loved the boss and the people with whom I worked so I stuck with it. In 2006 I was on a city bus that overturned and cracked a couple of vertebras in my back. The accident left me with complex regional pain disorder (CRPS) and chronic fatigue. I am permanently disabled. The position that I occupied as a legal editor for the State of Arkansas really saved me. Unlike proofreaders, editors also do a lot of researching and writing.
While I was recuperating from the accident at home, I found that the only chair I could sit in without a lot of pain was the office chair at my computer desk. So I had the thought if I am comfortable only in an office chair, I may as well get paid for it. Instead of quitting my job and drawing disability, I went back to work and worked for 11 more lovely years, which were nine years past my retirement eligibility. I finally threw in the towel and forced myself to retire because the chronic fatigue was making me too tired to concentrate on my work.
Now I draw a very nice pension from my extra years of work, much more than I would have had I drawn disability or even retired when I was eligible. I can write or not write, whichever I choose. Being a retired editor saved me from retiring in poverty on a meager pension.
About your hands and writing with a pen, do you write on your computer? I also have a similar problem resulting from a hard fall I took when I was a child. A nerve injury in my shoulder causes weakness and pain in my writing hand. That and doing other things, too, for instance I have trouble peeling and slicing an apple. I usually get someone else to do it for me. So, learning to write on a computer was a must for me. At first it was difficult to concentrate while looking at a blank screen, but I got used to it. You are definitely computer literate or you wouldn't be on Hubpages. So try it if you don't do it now. I think you'll come to like it. Best of luck to you. I'm sending healing thoughts your way.

I agree that this is a wonderful response to Brenda's word prompt, Gianella. I also think many people will relate to your writing journey.
Thanks for posting this article, Brenda.
I agree with Doris (Misbejabbers) that you shouldn't get discouraged.
If not a pen there are other ways. I tend to write on my mobile phone, but there are programs where you can learn to talk and it tyoes onto computer.
Writing helps others as well as yourself.
I'm certain you will find a way.
