    Moving forward can mean leaving the past behind. We’ve come so far and yet we still have so much to learn. What is something helpful you’ve learned?

    Interest in a podcast specifically for people with chronic illness and/or disability?

    Hi all,

    I'm brand new here, trying this out for the first time. I'm working on putting together a podcast made by and for people living which chronic illness and/or disability. The goal is to share real stories of how people adapt to their new lives, challenges they've faced, what they've learned, how they cope, and also interviewing professionals who work with people with chronic pain. This is specifically for people who used to live "normal" lives, but had to completely change their lives due to medical issue or trauma. The focus is not on any specific condition, but about how we deal with them.

    Does this sound like something appealing to you? What topics would you like to see covered in this podcast? What would be most helpful for you? Also anyone good with computers interested in helping to create the podcast, please send me a message! #neisvoid #disabilitysupport #Spoonies #reimaginelife2 #Chronicpainwarrior

    Just need to vent a little #ChronicPain

    Why am I like this?

    My #nervepain is flared up. It’s not horrible, but it’s distracting and at the point where it’s affecting me.

    But in a way I did it to myself. It had been getting worse anyway, but I pushed myself too hard at the gym and now it’s bad.

    The thing is, it wasn’t an accident. I knew I was pushing myself too hard. I knew the smart thing would be to stop and rest. But I forced myself to do it. In part because I was having a good time. I like seeing how strong I’m becoming. But part of it was that I don’t want to use my chronic pain/permanent injury as an excuse. I would feel like a quitter if I let myself stop. I would feel like I was taking the easy way out and like my arm was a limitation.

    I wish I could learn to accept myself and my limitations. I wish I could learn to see myself as just as worthy even if I let myself quit when it’s beneficial to me.

    I also wish I could take a sick day without feeling weak.

    Changing perspective can be as simple as feeling gratitude instead of getting stuck in a negative mind cycle

    CHRONIC PAIN PATIENTS DID NOT CAUSE THE OPIOID CRISIS.

    It seems Australia has not learnt from the dire situation in America, whereby prescriptions to patients for legitimate opioids have DROPPED 60% in the last 10yrs, yet overdoses have DOUBLED in that same timeframe! In fact, reputable studies indicate where there is “No previous or current history of abuse/addiction, the percentage of abuse/addiction [in chronic pain patients] was calculated at 0.19%."

    Cracking down on legally issued prescriptions [as part of the failed War Against Drugs], in no way is a good outcome for those who have responsibly used their opioids for years, i.e. a cohort of people who are NOT addicted to their life-saving medications, & who ONLY use their legally prescribed pain relief as required!
