Issue #250: Chronic Pain Alters Your Experience Despite Being in the Same Place & Napping May Seem Counterintuitive, But Pushing Through is Worse | A Chronic Voice

Friday, 29 January 2021. Issue #250.

In this issue: There is no dead end in life per se; sometimes choices can be difficult to make, but stay curious and open to the wonder of life. The worries of a person with invisible illness navigating through society. Chronic pain can give you a different experience from everyone else, even though you are in the same room, at the same setting. The importance of featuring as many voices as possible, as chronic illnesses are as diverse as people themselves. The constant reminder of everything you’ve lost and gone through when your body doesn’t function. When your doctor tells you what a great job you’ve been doing with your research on fibromyalgia, and approaches you to lead classes for other patients. Clozette features two women with invisible illnesses, the impact it has had on them, and their interactions within society. A positive attitude doesn’t necessarily mean positive thinking, but the ability and choice to see the good in your life and accomplishments you’ve made, instead of focusing on solely the negative. Napping in the day may seem counterintuitive if you have difficulties sleeping at night, but if you need to push through then it will actually make things worse. When you’re in extreme pain, and your physiotherapist asks if you’re breathing correctly to help yourself.

  • Sure love the collection of chronic illness journeys you’ve collected here. Each journey is so individual, yet each gives better understanding of what it means to live with ongoing pain and illness. I’ve learned so much from others. I truly believe that by connecting I have been able to get to a much better place than I was three years ago. I don’t know that I would have gotten here on my own; actually, I know I wouldn’t have. Thank you for sharing these stories and for including me. It makes me feel like I’m making a difference for others in the way others did for me.
