Friday, 13 August 2021. Issue #277.

In This Issue:

  1. Sometimes we need to consider fatigue management as much as pain management in order to boost our motivation levels.
  2. If you’ve ever tried to fake being well, you’ve probably learned that the payback is not worth it.
  3. It’s undeniable that with invisible disabilities, we will need more help than the average person to get by. Yet, it is not inherently wrong to ask for help; what matters is the intention and why.
  4. Patients with dysphagia sometimes avoid eating or drinking due to fear from choking or pain, which can lead to malnutrition and dehydration.
  5. There are all sorts of breathing techniques in yoga, but Melissa recommends mindful breathing and the 4:2:6 technique for those with chronic pain.
  6. When not even painkillers can ease the pain during a bad pain flare, and it’s a toss up between pain and steroids which cause mental agony.
  7. Bringing an advocate for doctors’ appointments due to medical trauma and triggers that might cause you to freeze up.
  8. Wishing you could do things independently as a disabled person.
  9. The problem with being an introvert with social anxiety is that people tend to assume that all behaviours are due to your mental disorder.
  10. Feeling foolish for having waited so long to use a shower chair when it helps so much, just because you don’t consider yourself disabled enough.
