September, Pain Awareness Month

DmeoxF9XcAAnEI5I actually meant to complete this post earlier in the month because September is Pain Awareness Month and it is an important topic, but just was not able to because of too much fatigue and ironically enough pain. However, I do have a lot of information I want to share with y’all.

Pain is an awful thing many are forced to live with. Pain unfortunately affects way too many people’around the world. Speaking from my own personali-am-in-pain-you-just-dont-know-it-cause-i-smile-through-the-rain-and-refuse-to-show-it. experiences, I battle with pain every day and every minute of my life and it is anything but easy. Of course some days are worst that others, but even on a good day I still hurt more than anyone ever should have to. In all the years I have survived pain and Multiple Sclerosis, I have found that my pain increases drastically later in the day, like after about 2:00 PM. However even when I am in pain, I refuse to give in, but instead try my best to rise up again andpainhigh-res keep fighting the battle.

There are five types of pain a person can suffer from:

1.) Acute:

*Pain is felt short-term

*Pain will start suddenly

*The pain is related to soft tissue damageacutechronicpain.png

*Gradually will resolve on its own, when the injury heals.

2.) Chronic:

*This type of pain is felt over extended periods of time.

*Effected areas include back, neck, joints, mouth and face and muscles and bones.

*This type of pain is possibly caused by inflammation or dysfunctional nerves

*Diseases like Rheumatoid Arthritis, Osteoarthritis, Fibromyalgia, and ailments due to cancer, Multiple Sclerosis, Stomach Ulcers, AIDS and Gallbladder Disease.

3.) Neuropathic Pain-nerve-pain

*This type of pain and come and go.

*This is caused by damage or disease affecting the somatosensory nervous system. It is possible it could be associated with abnormal sensations called dysesthesia.

*There are many symptoms for this type of pain, which include: Sensation of pins and needles, uncomfortable tingling and burning, burning and tingly pain, uncomfortable and uncontrollable nerve pain. These symptoms can be felt during a certain time or day or felt the entire day without a break.

download (4)4.) Visceral Pain:

*Results from activation of nociceptors of the thoracic, pelvic or abdominal viscera (organs).

*Sensitive to stretching, ischemia and inflammation, but insensitive to small stimuli, like cutting or burning that typically cause pain

5.) Breakthrough Pain:

*Severe pain that rears its ugly head, when a person is already medicated with long-term pain killers.

*Very common in cancer patients.wp-1451082527281

*Felt in between regular and scheduled pain killers.

Lower back pain, migraines, facial pain, and neck pain are the four most common issues among those that suffer from chronic pain. Only 7% of men deal with chronic pain, where 18% of women deal with this nasty issue.

pain-awareness-monthAfter reviewing the statistics of people around the world that deal with chronic pain, the United States has the highest numbers.  For many reasons, I was not all that surprised that American’s rank highest in this category. I am going to list 6 major points of American’s and pain.

*50 million of the population live with chronic pain

*Between 560 and 630 million dollars is lost annually because of chronic pain

*Chronic pain is the leading cause of early long-term disabilityCrPnpZqUAAUwBhS

*Lower back pain affects 26 million people (which is 80%)

*Pain accounts for 78% of emergency room admissions (This is a huge number of people that are forced to go to an Emergency room,. knowing how awful insurance is and knowing the bill will be obscene.)

*Pain disrupts 42 million American’s sleep

download (5)Canada, having free health care also has many people that deal with pain. I have heard that the only thing that could be difficult is getting in with a doctor quickly, but at least they won’t go bankrupt dealing with their health issues. I am going to list a few stats from Canada.

*1 in 10 Canadian’s experience chronic pain

*9% of men and 12% of females experience chronic pain

*1.5 million of Canadian’s suffer pain issues

*34.6% of those deal with chronic pain, consider suicide

Considering that pain does affect so many around the world, I also wanted to share some random stats. The stats below are either worldwide or are to a specific area.

*20.5% or 1.5 billion people worldwide suffer with chronic pain

Pain management word cloud concept*20% of pain related suicides are a result of back pain

*30-50% of middle age people have neck episodes yearly

*Patients experience persistent pain after a routine surgery 50% of the time

*Back surgery fails up to 40% of the time. 2nd and 3rd interventions fail up to 70%

*Between 15% and 100% of patients with depression also battle with pain

*People with less education are 80% more likely to have chronic pain, than those with higher education

*500 million working days in Europe are lost to chronic pain

*20.2% of the Danish population suffers with chronic pain

CfIvOxFXEAA18E_I know many of you live with an illness that also causes a great deal of pain and I truly hate that for all of you. I stand by my beliefs that no one should ever have to suffer throughout their lives and there should be many more cures than there are. I guess there is a huge part of me that thinks, ‘It is 2019 and there are many brilliant minds out there. Why are these highly intelligent people not finding cures? Or why if these people have found the cures, why aren’t they shared?’

It takes a strong and determined person to work around the challenges that pain 49fa3f70b3c9ded5e0963d1328128554inflicts on our lives. I may have never met any of you in person, but through reading your posts and your comments on mine, I know you are one of these incredibly strong individuals ❤. With it being “Pain Awareness Month”, I wanted to share information that struck a nerve for me. Pain may be able to hide from others, but it is so real for many people. All I can say is a strong positive mind can do amazing things and even if it doesn’t take the pain away, it could carry you through to better times.

Thank you so much for visiting my site today. I always appreciate you taking the time to not only read what I share, but 3cf90d128f2321c4137a8be012ec0616--be-better-better-lifealso leaving amazing comments. I hope you have had a wonderful weekend and you are feeling the best you possibly can. I know it can seem difficult to remember, but y’all are very strong and have loving hearts. The amount of compassion y’all share is breathtaking! Please never forget that i am always sending y’all LOTS of love ❤, comfort, and many positive vibes!

Outlets are important!

environmental-writer-300x156Do you have an outlet from the pains that life hands us? I do believe having an outlet can be the most therapeutic thing for anyone, almost like a short escape from reality. It doesn’t matter if you write on a blog and share you deepest feelings with others or if you take time alone to write in a journal about your feelings, it is just important to get those emotions out. Releasing positive and or negative emotions can create so much true comfort!

Obviously y’all know I write on my blog as much as I can, but recently I have started download (5)writing in a journal as well. There might be times when I may not be ready or comfortable sharing how I am feeling with anyone yet and writing these feelings down in private offers me serenity. I find that writing down what is going through my mind at any given time allows me to reread what I am dealing with and gain some perspective. I think that by writing in a journal, I can just be honest with myself and not have to worry about what anyone else thinks or someone trying to tell me how I should feel or how I should cope with my struggles. There are many times that I just wanting to come up with solutions on my own, but then there of course times I do want advice.

I really do enjoy writing on my blog as well because this gives me a chance to not only outletshare with y’all, but also gain some amazing feedback from y’all!! I have told y’all many times before that I am very critical of my own writing, but reading your thoughts helps me in so many ways. I have always dreamed of being a writer and having freedom to write about whatever I want! My ultimate dream is to gain the confidence to write the book I have mulled over for many years. I do believe that if I continue writing on my blog, which I do intend to, I will gain a tremendous amount of knowledge from each of you and about my own skills.  I am very curious about what you consider an outlet. Is writing on your blog, writing in asunrise_music300[1] journal, or do you even consider writing to be an outlet at all?

I also consider music to be an outlet. It amazes me how much passion and meaning can be in just one simple song. I am sure what I take from any given song can be much different that it would anyone else and it might be a lot different than what the writer intended. I appreciate the creativity song writers hold and value what they are sharing with the world.

I am looking forward to reading what you consider an outlet to be and how it has helped you! I am so pleased to say that I do not have to work this weekend, which is allowing me to download (5)do things I really needed to do, like clean the house and rest. I know how crazy that just sounded, cleaning the house and resting seem like they are opposites, but for me being able to get the house nice and clean is a great feeling. Of course all the extra work did create a lot of pain for me, but now I am able to spend the remainder of the weekend resting and preparing myself for another LONG week at work and unfortunately I have to work next weekend!

Thank you for stopping by my site today! I hope you are enjoying your weekend and feeling well! Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love ❤, comfort, and many positive vibes!

Fight the battle & Win the war!

images (2)Living life with a chronic illness that brings on pain is not easy, but letting that pain win the battle should not ever be an option. Of course it is easier said than done, but isn’t it worth trying? There might be days that it hurts to even get out of bed, but just lying in the bed solves absolutely nothing because the pain will is still there later on.

There are things that can be done to fight against the pain we may feel. Now this is just howlove your life more than you hate your pain I think and what I have tried training my mind to think and believe. It is amazing what we can trick our minds into believing! The things that work for me might not work for anyone else, after all we are all different. Sometimes simply taking a nice hot bubble bath can make a HUGE difference! I think it is something about the calming feeling of the warmth that eases my aching body. Of course, my doctor has told me numerous times that hot water isn’t 579ef8182e48d1ac880303bd79cb9696good for me because it is not supposed to mesh well with Multiple Sclerosis, but it helps me. It is just like while at work my heating pad becomes my best friend!

For me, as crazy as this will sound, if I try to keep moving I feel that my pain actually lessens. It does not make a whole lot of sense to me because I would think when it pain resting would be way more beneficial. I often think when I stop doing something like cleaning, doing laundry or any other household chore, my pain settles in and I feel so much worse! 

I also find it helpful to keep my mind preoccupied, so I do not have time to even think about images (5)pain I am feeling. This could be reading a good book, writing either on my own blog or commenting on another’s, watching some mindless TV show (my favorite is General Hospital, which I know sounds insane) or even watching a good movie (my favorites are anything from the Fast & The Furious). Little things can create a distraction for the mind and possibly alleviate our pains, even if it is for a short time.

Anyone that lives with any type of chronic illness understands that it can and does create various challenges. I think it is extremely important to discover ways to deal with these challenges and never stop searching for new ways to manage difficult times. I know I have mentioned Web-Ad-3this before, but I strongly feel the only way to fail is to give up.

The promise I made to myself years ago when I was first diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis was to never allow the illness defeat me. With a much more mature mindset now, I still value what my younger mind thought during one of the hardest times in my life. Nineteen years later, I will still keep this promise to myself.

Do y’all have any special ways you deal with your pain issues? All of us that struggle with this can understand one another and offer very valuable advice to each other. It does make me sad that anyone has to deal with constant pain, but at the same time it makes us so much dont-give-up-galaxy-hold-on-hope-Favim.com-1428490stronger! WE can fight this battle together and WE can win the war together!

Thank you so much for visiting my site today. I am sorry I missed my normal Motivational Monday quote, I was dealing with a massive migraine and wasn’t able to do it. I hope this will make up for that! Not only do I hope what I have shared beneficial for you, but also reassured you that you are not alone in the fight and we can win the war together. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love ❤, comfort, and many positive vibes!

Crazy day with falls!

images (1)Last Wednesday was a pretty crazy day for me. First, I left work early so I could be with my husband at our older cat Chloe’s doctor’s appointment.  Chloe is 14 years old and always been very healthy, but she has been losing a lot of weight lately and we knew it wasn’t normal. My poor baby was so scared in the short car ride and even more so waiting in the exam room.  Even though Chloe was getting her blood drawn and the doctor got a urine sample from her, she was surprisingly very well behaved. Chloe has a very unique little personality and does not put up with anything she doesn’t like, but she is also incredibly sweet and lovable.

The results from all of Chloe’s tests were not horrible, but they were not great either. My husband and I did some research prior to the appointment, so we would be prepared for the results. However, there is NO amount of 293research that could have prepared us for the results. Our 14 year old sweet baby girl has early stage kidney failure. We are trying to start the new food that will help her, but so far she doesn’t like it. This is just going to take a lot of patience and persistence to get her to eat the new food!

The evening part of Wednesday was not all that great either. Well it was more the late night download (5)part of Wednesday. For the first time in my life, I had two falls. The first fall happened around one in the morning and wasn’t that bad because I landed on my knees. The second fall happened shortly after the first around 1:30 am and it was horrible. I still do not know 100% what I hit my head on, the only thing I can think of is the window panel.

I immediately had a huge lump right above my left eye. My husband was so worried he took me to the emergency room. I was still pretty out of it when we were talking to the nurses and stayed that way when the doctor finally came in. The ER doctor had me wipe the sore that was showing, I guess so he could see if I needed stitches. Thankfully, I did not need stitches. After that, the doctor said we needed to do a CT to makeER sure there wasn’t a brain bleed. I am relieved the CT did not indicate a brain bleed or anything else that could be dangerous. I was released from the hospital with the directions to rest. It seems that the only thing that helps a concussion is rest!

I was having a lot dizzy spells before the fall, but now it is every time I stand up from the couch. I am not sure if the increased dizziness is from hitting my head or from the MS. I am also having some memory issues and tend to get confused easily.

In my 37 years, I have never had a black eye or a concussion. I hate how awful the nasty 17143.jpgblack eye looks and have not been able to cover it with make-up. I am going back to work on Monday, but will be sure to take it easy. Hopefully, the nasty eye will be better by then. Everyone knows my favorite color is purple, but I do not want my eye to be all dark purple! I am trying to listen to what the doctor said about reducing screen time, but I am still trying to do some in the blogging community. I of course will love reading your comments, but it may take me a little longer to respond.

I hope you are enjoying your weekend and of course feeling the best you can. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love ❤, comfort and many positive vibes!

Coping with Chronic Pain

Sunday-QuoteCoping with chronic pain while still trying to maintain a normal life seems almost impossible at times and even a little frustrating! The beginning of this week was hard for me because I was on my feet way more than I could tolerate. I was truly thankful for the two days off I had, but work on Saturday was absolutely insane!

Currently I work at an apartment community in what should be a low stress position because I am just a leasing consultant. I arrived to work at 10:00 am and at 10:02 I had my first people arrive saying they were supposed to be moving in that day. There was no information anywhere on the other Restartleasing consultant’s desk and the manager keeps his office locked, which makes absolutely NO sense!!I ended up calling my co-worker on his day off, after all this was his lease and should have been handled on Friday. I was not at all surprised that he did not know which apartment the couple was moving into or what they owed. We tried contacting the property manager, who of course did not answer his phone or return the phone call. I ended up having to explain to the couple we would have to postpone their move in date until Monday because I was not able to get any of the information we needed. Thankfully, they did still have their other apartment, so they chaouswould not be forced to get a hotel room for the weekend.

The second person arrived at about 10:30 and this was my lease, so I knew what needed to be done. The gentleman just needed to view the three apartments I had available for his move in date. Consider his move in date was not right away, I was not allowed to hold a normal apartment for him. The three I was able to hold were slightly modified to accommodate a handicap individual, which he is not. Even though I disagreed with this situation, I did this at the direction of my manager! Thankfully he was satisfied with the first one because he wanted to be closer to the front of the community. This was the easiest situation I had to deal with all day!download (4)

Once I got back to the office, after showing the three apartments, there was another person waiting because she was also supposed to be moving in. With no surprise at all there was very limited information on my co-workers desk regarding the move-in, but at least I was able to find what the apartment number was and what the new resident owed. Unfortunately, the important things that were missing were the lease to be signed and keys to the apartment. My guess is the lease was in my manager’s LOCKED office and no one informed maintenance of the correct move-in day. I was able to work around the issues by giving the young lady the ONLY key we had and asking her to come into the office on Monday to sign her lease and get the real keys.

I do not handle things well when simple things do not go well. I remember asking my co-8767492ff9e8b5334f5408fde751e388-thankful-for-grateful-for-300x237worker early in the week to make sure ALL his move-ins were completed, which would have meant walking through the apartment to ensure there were NO issues, the lease was signed and apartment keys were waiting in the file. I gave him several days’ notice to handle things properly and in my opinion how he handled them were unacceptable. I blame him and the manager for how terrible things went yesterday, but I do plan to make some suggestions on Monday morning so this kind of thing NEVER happens again! I do not think this sets a horrible feel for someone moving in to a new apartment when nothing was handled in an appropriate manner!

The entire day was a total disaster and most of the issues could have and should have been images (1)avoided. Another HUGE issue I was dealing with was, phone call after phone call with residents complaining their air conditioner was not working. The maintenance person informed me that the new management company was not allowing them to buy Freon from the vendor they had been using for years, but did not have another vendor lined up. The residents are paying to live these apartment and therefore important things like a working air conditioner when the temperatures are in the high 90’s is a priority and should Work-Quotes-Jim-Collins-in-his-book-Good-To-Great-shares-that-we-need-to-get-the-right-peoplalso be a requirement!

By the end of my day on Saturday, I was not only over-heated, fatigued and in an insane amount of pain, but I was also extremely irritated. It is not fair to force someone to pay for an apartment and then not fix things that break! If I am not mistaken, it is in the lease agreement what each party is responsible for.

It is now Sunday and my last day of the my short weekend before going back to work five days in a row. Unfortunately, even though I am trying to rest, my pain is still rather high. It seems like things have just continued to add up for me and I almost feel like I am trying to walk uphill in quicksand! At this point all I can do is hope this upcoming week will go much better and things will start to ease up.download (4)

I always appreciate you and your amazing comments! I hope you have had a lovely weekend and you are able to enjoy the last day of it.

Sunday Hopes!

sunday-1.jpgGood afternoon y’all! I hope your weekend has been absolutely amazing and you are feeling well. I am so glad that I was able to finally able to do a couple posts this weekend because it really brings me SO much joy! I must say that I am still a little shocked that I received two award nominations a couple days apart from each other and feel so thankful to the amazing people that nominated me! Now that I have been given this kind of recognition it leads me to believe that it is possible that I am doing something good with my blog! I have always wanted to be able to inspire and encourage as many as I possibly can and maybe, just maybe, this means that I am doing what I had planned!

If I am being completely transparent, which I always am and find it very important to do so, I have had VERY LOW energy and MANY pain issues this weekend. Of course, pain pain and fatigueand fatigue are just part of my daily life and I am typically able to just ignore them completely and move forward. I tend to not really understand why such issues become more intense at various times, but I think I might have finally determined the reason behind this. It is very possible that I am just a fantastic weather woman! My body tells me when it is going to rain a day ahead of time and I find amusement when the actual weatherman is clueless! On Friday, I started to feel somewhat awful, but it was manageable. Yesterday while I was grocery shopping I started chatting with the cashier, images (10)which I know y’all will find that shocking, just kidding y’all already know I always initiated conversations wherever I go! Anyways, I mentioned to her that I thought it was going to start raining   very soon. She was an older woman and agreed with me. We both said that we feel the rain deep in our bones prior to the first drop falls. Her reason was that she has arthritis and always hurts more when it rains . WOW, this kind of makes me feel older than my years, but I guess such as life and it could be worst!

Even though I am rather tired, I finally have the time to write. Have y’all ever run into download (12)roadblocks when you start writing because you have far too many ideas running around in your mind? I am definitely at that point right now, so please bare with me as I try to sum up a few things that are on my mind!🌸

It has been a couple weeks since I shared my thought that I may be gluten-intolerant. I have done a decent job with cutting gluten of my diet, but definitely not perfect. I have bought many gluten-free foods for my house and can tell a slight difference in the taste. Last night the craziest thing happened to me Wheat-Gluten-Intoleranceand scared the hell out of me. When I was almost done eating dinner, I had a terrible pain in my stomach. This pain was so intense it not only made me very nauseous, but unable to finish my dinner and bent over in pain. Let’s just say without too many details, this was the worst pain my stomach has ever felt. My husband was ready to take me to the Emergency Room and knowing it would cost a small fortune without insurance made my stress increase the pain I was already dealing with drastically.  Thankfully, this all did pass after a little more than an hour and I am okay now, but I also refuse to eat.download (13)

❤❤Another thing I would like to add is two people I know are in need of some extra prayers. The first one is my mother who went to the hospital on Friday because of severe pain in her back. After a many tests, the ER doctor said it could be one of two things. She may end up needing to have her gallbladder removed because of gallstones or she needs to pass a kidney stone. Both of these can be terrifying and very painful. I am just hoping this issue is just a kidney stone that will pass soon ending her pain and not needing surgery. It might sound crazy, but surgeries scare me because  errors can happen.

❤❤The other person that is in need of prayers is a dear blogger friend Jessica. Jessica’s son has been in the hospital for I think about a week now. Her sweet little boy has had to endure being in the hospital with doctors poking and prodding him. This would scare the heck img_0737out of me and I am 37, so I cannot imagine how this little boy is feeling. Jessica is a VERY strong and amazing woman, but I do believe the more prayers of healing for her son would be very appreciated! If you have a moment, please check out her blog and maybe leave her some encouraging words as I know she will appreciate your thoughts-https://jessierenea.com.

Thank you so much for visiting my site today! Y’all know my posts are not normally this long, but I had a lot to share! I hope the rest of your Sunday is wonderful and peaceful! I do look forward to reading your brilliant thoughts on this post and I do promise to respond as quickly as I can! Never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love ❤, comfort and many positive vibes!
