For years, I’ve heard people say that pain is always temporary, and I’ve struggled to understand it because for me it’s really not. Maybe, when one has some help for what is causing the pain, then it can be more temporary. But I don’t have that help, so my symptoms and pain are constant and permanent until I do. ~
I do everything I can to try to manage the pain, but none of those things are treating the cause of it. Doctors are the only ones who have access to and can prescribe what can treat the cause of my pain. My potential relief is completely dependent on them. For years now, my pain has not been temporary even though treatments do exist. ~~
Anyone having a similar experience?
