Issue #198: The Compatibility of Psychology and Psychiatry Help & The Importance of Slowing Down Daily Especially with Chronic Illness | A Chronic Voice

Friday, 31 January 2019. Issue #198.

In this issue: Nipping pain in the bud with painkillers, in order to prevent a bigger pain flare that will require harsher medications to suppress. Neither psychology nor psychiatry sessions are ‘better’; they are compatible with the same goals in mind. Enduring stress and pain flares to go to court, and fight to regain disability right. Being aware of the signs that would lead to a POTS flare, and fainting less in public places. No matter what you do in life, you are your own biggest advocate; educate yourself and ask for what you need. You are not alone in your exhaustion and pain. Chronic illness forces you to look at things from a wider perspective, and how an activity now may impact you for the following days or weeks to come. ‘Articulating lifelong illnesses through various perspectives’ – where every voice counts. The importance of being aware and slowing down every day, especially if you live with a chronic illness. It can be frustrating when your body doesn’t go along with your plans, but compromises are the corner of progress.
