Chronic Pain: Lessons Learned

For those of us who have lived in chronic pain for months… or even years, we slowly learn these habits.  Some are a way of self coping or self soothing.  Some are a way of protecting ourselves from pain or perceived slights or threats.  Other times, it is simply about self preservation; “what do I have to do to make it through another f’ing day?”

Am I being a little to raw here, I don’t think so.  I am by no means suicidal, but there have been times where I think a bullet to the head would have been a kind gesture.  ::sigh::

With all of this said, in my pain free state, I have something I would like to share with the world.  I have lied and I have hid things from people.  I have done things that have been counterproductive to my health.  Why?  Probably because, well… either I’m scared, shy, embarrassed, overwhelmed, or just being a stubborn ass.  I wrote an article about some things I have learned and I would like to share it with all of you.  This is an open invitation for those in chronic pain to take a look at themselves and maybe make a few changes to their own habits.  Maybe you too can improve the quality of your life; resist the temptation to let the black hole swallow you up, even if the pain still persists.
