    What's one thing you wish you knew when you were diagnosed with chronic pain?

    If you've been working through your own chronic pain for a while now – what would you tell someone who's just been diagnosed that you wish you had known?

    I'll start...

    I wish someone had told me to NEVER compare myself to others who were also sick. Pain management looks different for everyone. #ChronicPain #Neuropathy #neuralgia #ComplexRegionalPainSyndrome #Fibromyalgia #Nervedamage #MultipleSclerosis #Arthritis #Shingles #Migraines #BackPain #Cancer

    Chronic pain is pretty awful. Most days it’s bearable, but I have to take a pharmacy every day to actually somewhat deal with it. With the meds, my normal pain is about a 3/10. Sometimes it goes higher, but it still stays below about a 6/10 most of the time. I’ve got good meds, and they work.

    Every once in a while I do something like twist an ankle or strain a shoulder, something like that. Minor strain or sprain that I can normally ignore because of my meds.

    So how bad does the pain have to be to get past my meds and literally make me gasp? #ChronicPain #Fibromyalgia #neuralgia

    I Was Brave Today

    Although I’ve been fighting anxiety, I managed to go get my hair done. It did feel good to get out once I was out there. What brave thing have you done today? #ChronicMigraines #OccipitalNeuralgia #neuralgia #ADHD #Fibromyalgia #Anxiety #Depression #CheckInWithMe #ChronicFatigueSyndrome #OnedayAtaTime #letstalkdepression

    Being Authentic

    Being Authentic is important to me. Being genuine shows you the right people that belong in your life. Let go of the ones that don’t accept you for who you are. #ChronicMigraines #OccipitalNeuralgia #neuralgia #ADHD #Fibromyalgia #Anxiety #Depression #CheckInWithMe #ChronicFatigueSyndrome #OnedayAtaTime

    Prayers Please

    This is my daughter’s dog. Today she has surgery to remove a tumor and see if she has cancer. If you will, please say a prayer for Lizzie. Thank you so much!

    Progress Not Perfection

    Before I got sick and had so many things wrong with me my house was almost perfect. Everything got cleaned and scrubbed every weekend. Since getting sick, I’ve had to learn to live with progress not perfection and I’m not going to lie it’s been hard for me. I’m finally at a point in life where I’m satisfied with just progress. Progress is good! #ChronicMigraines #Pain #ChronicPain #OccipitalNeuralgia #neuralgia #ADHD #Fibromyalgia #Anxiety #Depression #CheckInWithMe #chronicfatiguesydrome #OnedayAtaTime

    Be Your Own Hero

    What this means to me: taking care of myself to the best of my knowledge, preventative care, the best choices for me, and stepping outside of my comfort zone once in a while. #ChronicMigraines #Migraines #Pain #OccipitalNeuralgia #neuralgia #ADHD #Fibromyalgia #Anxiety #Depression #CheckInWithMe #ChronicFatigueSyndrome #OnedayAtaTime
