Power in My Pain
I overcame the pain of infertility and chronic illness and want to help you do the same!
The struggle to conceive, or the pain of being told you cannot conceive, can leave you feeling a major void. Many women have the desire to physically conceive, carry and birth a child, and dealing with that no longer being a possibility causes emotions and thoughts for which we can never truly prepare. Infertility may cause you to question your womanhood. You will search for answers and dig deep to find a way to, proverbially, touch the hem of Jesus’s garment to be healed. But what if your healing does not come the way you expect? What if your only option for a better quality of life involves permanent infertility? What do you do? How do you overcome the pain? Can you ever live in power and with purpose, despite your condition?
The end of our suffering does not always manifest itself the way we think it should. Rather than looking at the end as a curse, or punishment, or something being wrong with you, we must see the end as a means to a new beginning - a healthy life and the ability to live freely and without shame. Regardless of what we experience, we must be coffee beans. Coffee is made by running hot water over the beans or by steeping the beans for hours in cold water. It’s not the beans that are changed, but it’s the water. Many times in life, in order to change our environment, we must face adversity – much like a coffee bean being submerged in hot water. It’s not what you go through. It’s how you use the adversity to your advantage in order to change your environment.

In Power in My Pain, entrepreneur, and minister Danielle Wright shares her personal journey and struggles with infertility and how, after 27 years of excruciating physical and emotional pain, she decided to put it to an end. The story is focused on conveying that, although she is a Christian, Danielle is human and had some very hard times as she trekked this journey. She details the necessity of having support as well as the necessity to do what is absolutely best for yourself when you're faced with a chronic illness and, ultimately, live life shamelessly and victoriously. Danielle teaches that you, too, can convert your pain into power when you embrace the fact that an infertile womb does not equate to infertile dreams.
Danielle provides five ways she found power in the pain of infertility and learned to live confidently, shamelessly and victoriously.
Become your greatest advocate
See your healing differently
Admit you want to give up sometimes
Stop talking about your problems and speak about solutions
Develop a Faith, Focus, Forward, Finish mentality
Take control of your health – mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually – when you find the power in your pain.

I have known Danielle for years and didn’t know the full extent of what she was experiencing and courageously fighting through. As a licensed mental health clinician and a certified trauma therapist, I have seen how physical ailments and pain can affect the brain and I have diagnosed with stories like Danielle with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). You don’t have to go to war to have this diagnosis. Medical issues can affect how you live and function causing not only physical pain but emotional turmoil. Danielle gives the reader a raw and detailed account of how physical health can impact all areas of your life. She provides a glimpse into how women of color and their pain is often ignored and/or goes unnoticed. It is so important that doctors and hospitals are not only listening to patients but referring them to get help with their emotional pain. Just like you need medical treatment for physical ailments the brain needs to be treated when trauma occurs such as in Danielle’s story of living through the emotional pain when your body is not functioning properly. clients

Wright takes the reader on a journey filled with so much raw emotion and openness that you find yourself feeling many of the emotions along with her, as if you were one of her closest friends, sharing every intimate detail as they unfolded. A powerful testimony of strength and courage, even through an account where she is often more vulnerable than self-assured, where her unanswered questions compel the reader to search for the answers to make it all better. Her triumph, in the end, is all of ours -- and a reminder that God is able and He cares.
