Living inside a body that has chronic pain can be overwhelmingly devastating some days. I can totally understand how some people who cannot tolerate pain well could resort to suicide. I have an extremely high pain tolerance but some days it takes over the soul and you just feel like giving in.
You know what helps me? I feel sorry for myself, then I cry and then I get up, shake the dust off and get back on the horse. I listen to my favorite songs EXTREMELY LOUD! I dance my butt off and feel the music inside my soul and I forget the whole world for a few moments. So whether you are a rock and roller, a country dude or classical, why don’t you give it a try? You are in pain anyways right? What have you got to lose?
You know the saying “dance like no one is watching”. Give it a try who cares if you don’t have the beat, no one can see. It always releases endorphins for me and makes me happy. It is sometimes the only way I can warm myself up too, my thyroid is sluggish. So anyone who has thyroid issues and gets really cold, this works great for that as well.
I think the secret to living with chronic pain is to keep your mind off the pain as much and as often as you can.
Find your triggers and abide by them. Keep a distant memory of how bad the pain can get and be determined that you will not let yourself get that way again. If a certain activity causes you extreme pain, don’t do it anymore or find a different way to do it that won’t cause pain.
Find what works and stick to it!
Find someone who can be support for you. I don’t mean just any support but someone who can lift you up and help you put a smile back on your face! Negativity can make things worse for you, try to avoid it at all costs.
Keep on truckin’! Write all your problems in this blog if it helps, it’s all yours. What ever works, keep it up. What ever makes it worse, avoid!
I have lots of article, check out the website. I have been behind in my blogging because I have had to catch up on inside and outside work and that means more back and neck pain for me. I promise to catch up on all the topic my commenters have asked for.
Citizens Commission on Human Rights International has labelled Psychiatry as labeling kids with bogus mental disorders. Please watch this video and read the article below. I added the side effects and mortality rate information of psychiatric drugs:
The “experts” warned that the fifth version of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM), scheduled for publication in 2013, “could mean that soon no-one will be classed as normal. . . . [M]any people previously seen as perfectly healthy could in future be told they are ill.”
This is not news. More than 200 hundred years ago Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749–1832) warned: “I believe that in the end humanitarianism will triumph, but I fear that, at the same time, the world will become a big hospital, each person acting as the other’s humane nurse.”
Here is a link to side effects from drugs used to treat psychiatry. Here are a few from a search I did for Canada:
Self-Harm, Suicide Risk/Suicide Attempts/Suicide
Mortality Risk Increased
Heart Problems, Cardiac Events
Skin Problems/Reactions, Hypersensitivity Reactions, Multi-Organ Sensitivity
Dependence, Addiction, Medication Abuse, Hallucinations, Delusional Thinking, Sensory Disturbances, Confusion, Cognitive Impairment, Dizziness, Amnesia, Memory Loss, Depression
Mortality Risk Increased
Death/Sudden Death, Agitation, Irritability, Heart Problems, Cardiac Events, Stroke, Cerebrovascular Events, Hallucinations, Delusional Thinking, Sensory Disturbances
Death/Sudden Death, Blood Pressure Changes, Heart Problems, Cardiac Events, Stroke, Cerebrovascular Events
