Issue #197: You’re Allowed to Feel Your Emotions When You’re in Pain & The Amount of Time it Takes for the Chronically Ill to Look ‘Normal’ | A Chronic Voice

Friday, 24 January 2019. Issue #197.

In this issue: Surrounding yourself with comforting and supportive resources when you’re recovering from a pain flare. A book that encapsulates all that goes on when you’re both chronically ill, and also a caregiver to children with special needs and chronic illnesses. The bane of invisible illness is that your pain cannot be seen, yet at the same time I’m glad that my appearances don’t reflect it. The need for a social media growth support group for our very niche niche. In order to prevent a pain flare triggered by hypersensitivity, those with ME/CFS and the chronically ill struggle with isolation a lot of the time. You’re allowed to feel upset when you’re in a crisis, and no one should try to override it with toxic positivity. It takes a lot of time for the chronically ill to prepare to look ‘normal’. Chronic pain is like a memory, an injury that your brain remembers even if it isn’t there any longer. Be kind always, for everyone is fighting a battle you know nothing about. Being able to walk 22,000 steps despite an injured knee, thanks to the use of a rollator.
