One of my neurologists had said that I was "very brave" to live in pain every day as I do. I just thought that was a very odd thing to say. I defined brave as a soldier, or some heroic character. It really touched my heart, so when I got home I Googled the definition. It opened my eyes to a new way of looking at all us chronic pain survivors! I tend to demean myself, so one of my "tools" for my new "normal" is to stop doing that! If you do this to yourself, please stop! Be kind to you! And go a step further and please encourage others to be kind to themselves as well!! You, dear fellow chronic pain survivors, are extremely BRAVE!! And don't let anyone ever demean you for this life we endure every single day! brave
ready to face and endure danger or pain; showing courage.
Functional Living With Chronic Pain is a blog I recently started. The goal is to help other chronic pain sufferers learn to live a new "normal" by using various "tools" to rebuild their lives. In doing so, to find understanding of various aspects we face, a purpose, even peace and joy in living with chronic pain. As well as encouraging sufferers to help others on the same journey.http://functionallivingwithchronicpain.blogspot.com/
