Other Chronic Pain sufferers out there.

Posted on: May 2, 2009

Yesterday while in bed trying desperately not to feel sorry for myself I decided to look for other blogs about chronic pain. The first one I stumbled on was by a lady who has a brilliant blog.

My favourite post by her is called Please don’t ask me how I feel. I could kiss her, as I struggle with this and she has written down all my thoughts and feelings about it.

The part that is particularly poignant is this;

Please, I beg of you; please stop expecting me to get well. I may get better but I am never going to be well. I’m doing the best I can by choosing smart doctors, taking my pills and reading everything I can about my illness and chronic pain.

I’ll be honest I haven’t got my head completely around this bit yet, but I’m getting there, and I need others to get there and not make me feel like I’m giving up.

I also found a chronic pain blog by a gentleman. This blog  plucked at my heart strings, and I did cry when I read this post. I can feel the frustration and helplessness in his writing and totally understand what he means.

There are many others too, and I will add them to my list. There really are some good reads.

Here’s a very interesting post about honouring (yes with a U, I’m British afterall! LOL) your limits.

Do you push past the pain, or not?

Hi, I’m pleased you enjoyed my site on Chronic Pain. It’s gratifying to see when others write from their hearts and lives. I know your thoughts and comments here help others as I hope mine do. Lemonade from lemons, right? Sue

Thank you for stopping by Sue, I appreciate it.
Please keep writing and spreading the word. I’ll keep cutting those lemons! x
