Issue #246: There is a Human Being Beneath the Diagnosis & A Glimpse Into the Lives of the Chronically Ill, Who Have Been Living in Isolation Long Before the Pandemic | A Chronic Voice

Friday, 01 January 2021. Issue #246.

In this issue: Panic attacks isn’t just ‘irritation’ in its simple form, but one that carries pulses of electrical anxiety that eventually floods your brain. Let’s take the fear from 2020, set it alight with hope, and take that forward via the January writing prompts. Doctors need to know that there is a human being underneath the diagnosis, who needs to be acknowledged. The emotional pain that results from chronic pain can make it harder to get through bad pain flares. A glimpse into the lives of the chronically ill, who have been living in isolation long before the pandemic. Bringing sacred rituals into the every day is a wonderful way to invite magic into the mundane. When pain becomes chronic, it becomes much harder to deal with as distraction techniques don’t help. It’s important for disabled people to stay active, but our exercise equipment needs to be adapted to our needs.
