Pain unattended and its dangers
“In fact, it’s often the most debilitating component of many diseases,”
People can find a way to live with the other challenges of painful conditions like arthritis, cancer, even paralysis but if you actually ask the patient, their number-one concern, the one thing that they want us to cure, is the pain.” When isolated and in pain, our mind is often our own worst enemy, especially when bottling up how we really are feeling both physically and mentally. When pain becomes chronic, with no clear end in sight, it is immensely psychologically debilitating in way that few other conditions are, while being entirely unsharable.
As erratic and unpredictable symptoms can alter and affect friendships and relationships, you may see your friends and family far less, or when you do, feel disconnected — lonely in a crowded room — and quite unlike how things once were, which leads to a different kind of loneliness. “Live Pain Free” it’s your right to lead a quality life.
