Pain Is So Much More Than Physical…

Where do you feel your pain? It’s so much more than physical – you know it!!!

According to the Oxford Dictionary, the number one meaning for the word pain is “Highly unpleasant physical sensation caused by illness or injury.” For those of us who battle with chronic pain, we can totally relate. Whether our pain is caused by an illness or injury, chronic pain is all consuming. It is ever present, admittedly in varying degrees, but it is always there. Since my car accident, I truly now understand the concept of relentless physical pain.

I am discovering that the injuries I have suffered, are so much more than physical. There are days when my mind and emotions are a mess. Today, is a perfect example.

For my part, I treat it with respect and keep it in check most of the time. It on the other hand, reminds me every so often how disruptive it can be to my existence.

To rest, to nourish myself with good food and to keep my stress levels in check.
