Why write this post?
It is my hope and desire that my life story will help you have a bit more empathy for your family and friends who are suffering with pain. Animals cannot speak our language and they depend on us humans to pay attention to how they are walking, laying and acting in life, please remember pain affects our pets too
What’s it like to live with chronic pain?
The smile that was once on our human face is removed replaced with little wrinkles between the eyes, breathing is shortened and more intense, hands can seem to grip tight, toes crumple up, neck is tight, and pain becomes something we learn to live with. No longer is it fun to entertain or attend social events as pain requires our immediate attention. Here is a link to show the faces of Pain a doctor pain scale really sad that many times a chronic pain can turn into a tear jerking insane pain for no apparent reason at all. Pain changes and swings in and out of our bodies.
What Can We Do To Help The Human Or Animal Live The Best Life?
Make sure the doctors have an understanding of what is causing the pain. Pain has a reason to be sending us the signal something is wrong in our bodies, something is terribly wrong when pain makes us cry tears and we need to give our bodies the opportunity to heal. We need to wait another day to push harder and sometimes less is more in working with strengthening our bodies muscles.
Pain is very real yes this is indeed true but beneath the pain and pain medication is the same human we use to know in a different way, same mother, wife, husband, brother, father, daughter, sister, co-worker, friend just enduring a daily battle with chronic pain. To be free of pain is indeed a gift from GOD. Never take for granted such a gift as it has freed you to do or be anything you want to be, no limitations if you are pain free.
GOD bless you and your family two and four-legged!
