Who Can Thrive?
After I got diagnosed with Trigeminal Neuralgia, I could not imagine how I would thrive with chronic pain. I have had so pain diagnoses over the years, that it seemed like too much to manage.
When I felt good and full of energy, I overdid it, which meant the crashes were huge. I was down even longer. There is a steadiness in my life as I watch my energy as I create achievable actions that distract me from pain.
Now with TN or the “suicide disease,” I cannot overdo. I am finding my way based on my energy. With this drastic change in my life, I must pay attention to the ebbs and flows, because I want to thrive.
How do you Thrive on Pain Days?
How you thrive with chronic pain? Especially on days filled with aches and flares. This is what I will be exploring and sharing. How I am doing this. To show what is working for me and my clients. It is the time to share so that we are no longer stuck in the old thinking that we are alone in these lonely diseases.
I find that creating distractions based on some small action brings joy and this moves the pain to the background of my body. I am exploring the action of distraction and how DISTRACTION is a positive thing.
So here is to having time every day where we do not intensely feel pain. May you have this in your life too.
