Friendship Distracts From Chronic Pain

Last month, I got to see two of my long-time girlfriends that I have known since 1997. You know. The kind that distance and time do not matter and when you get together it is as if no time has passed. This was not only good for my soul, but it was amazing how this visit distracted from my aches and pains.

I was having a difficult body month because of chronic pain issues along with a new physical therapy program. The therapist said at the first session, “It will get worse before it gets better.” She was right.

They came to my house because I was not up to driving. I am getting more honest about my needs the longer I have chronic pain, so I invited them over.

If you are in pain, call someone and ask them to come over. If they don’t live near you, use the technology that allows you to see each other on your phone or your computer. Face-to-face no matter what form takes you deeper into love and away from your pain.

Practice friendship as a form of distraction. You will be so happy you did.
