I don’t have chronic pain but this artwork is so nice to look at *^*
Just because we’re not writhing on the floor doesn’t mean we’re not hurting. We’ve just gotten really good at hiding it and functioning with it, otherwise we’d literally starve in our beds.
Lived like this for nearly a year. Got super lucky that it was repairable, but feel for those who have conditions that are not. <3
YES. So many people need to see this. Just because I’m not crying- doesn’t mean it doesn’t hurt like hell. And when I say I’m in “constant” pain, I mean that I am in constant pain.
Just because you don’t see me wincing, or hear me complaining, doesn’t mean it’s not happening.
I have arthritis in my hips, so yeah. Admittedly, I don’t want to take pain medication every day, especially since I found out that, because of genetics, I am far more likely to develop addictions than normal.
Something I can definitely relate to. I’ve been told over and over that if I do stretches and keep up with exercise, I would be rid of my pain. It lessens for sure but its clearly still there. I’m just tired of people telling to stretch and exercise as if that’s absolutely going to fix everything. And k dont want to seem like an ass telling them that it won’t work =_=
