Issue 274: Chronic Pain Can Make Life Mirror That of Your Grandparents' Rather Than Peers & Reaping the Benefits of Exercise with Arthritis

Friday, 23 July 2021. Issue #274.

In This Issue:

  1. Chronic pain and chronic fatigue can make one’s life mirror that of their grandparents’ rather than those of peers the same age.
  2. A large part of figuring out how to reap the benefits of exercise for arthritis is knowing when to do so, and when to rest instead.
  3. Caregivers must also take care of themselves and prioritise their own needs without feeling guilty.
  4. Whilst others are saving up for that rainy day scenario, those with chronic illness or a disability are already living it every single day. It can be scary, knowing that your caregivers are aging, too.
  5. Invisible illness can be so inconspicuous that you probably wouldn’t notice the signs unless you live with the person, or they are hospitalised.
  6. Vitamin D helps against cardiovascular disease, and also with the absorption and retention of calcium and phosphorus, which are essential for healthy bones.
  7. When Frida Kahlo painted ‘The Broken Column’ as a portrayal of strength in suffering, she had had a failed surgery on her spinal column and needed to wear a metallic corset as a result.
  8. A day in the life of a fibromyalgia warrior; enjoying swimming for the weightlessness and pain relief, and also walking and gentle yoga.
  9. In advanced stages, endometriosis invades the tissues of surrounding organs. This causes thick bands of scar tissue that can bind organs together, leading to dysfunction and damage of nerves and organs.
  10. Experiencing the best sleep with the help of cannabis, after only getting 2 – 4 hours of sleep per night for years.
