Mental Health

I recently started therapy again in hopes that it will help with pain management. It’s a little too early to tell but I really hope it helps. At least it can’t hurt, right?

It will give me an opportunity to speak with a professional and relieve stress. Normally, stress is a big trigger for my pain. If there’s even a slight chance of relieving stress off my life and my partner’s life then I’m all for it.

We talk about management, being nicer to myself, and acceptance but today we talked a little about the abusive I suffered as a kid. This is a topic that I’ve previously discussed with a different person but my new therapist wanted to know a little more. It’s understandable that she wants to know more and see if it’s still affecting me. It probably is but I’ve made peace with my past. The abuser is no longer a part of my life and hasn’t been around for awhile.

Basically, if you need help, go talk to someone.

I've been living with chronic pain for almost 30 years and I've been through the ringer with injections, medications, physical therapy, Eastern medicine, group meetings, and surgery. I'm also a group facilitator for the American Chronic Pain Association and we focus on helping others living with chronic pain. Hopefully, reading this journal will let people know they're not alone and there is help.
