Presents I'd want for Valentine's Day, Seriously

I know, flowers & chocolates are classic. You cannot go wrong with either. And I have on my desk from last year a wee stuffed monkey that when you squeeze it whistles at you. It is there because I love it. But there are just some things I really, really want that are hard to come by. Those tricky gifts for the chronically ill that you think about but just never, ever get.

A really, nice, refreshing coma

I’m not saying forever here. Or like Years. But maybe a few months of refreshing coma like sleep of non-painness seems nice. Likely isn’t nice. I bet it feels like sleep paralysis hell. But let me dream, man, let me dream. Also he might be arrested if he put me into a coma, so maybe this one is out.

A brand new robot body!!!

Hell Yeah!! Just replace every part of this…

The war on pain #painmatters

This!! I just told my doc the same thing she’s great and is as pissed about this as we are!!

“It is a unfortunate situation where chronic pain patients have to suffer, literally, for a crisis they don’t own. 100 million people in the US have chronic pain, and some of them need opiates for effective pain management. Of course, many of them now no longer get that. I question whose conscious the rise in suicide rates in that population that should rest upon. I live in Canada and similar policies are coming here. One problem simply amplifying another. What a vile horror to leave people suffering like that, without alternative and effective pain management strategies in place before they do so. Trying to resolve the suffering of some does not justify causing the suffering in others. It just doesn’t. #Painmatters” Nikki Albert

That was my response to a particular topic on the opiate epidemic. And shortly after I wrote this tweet:

Morning Affirmations

The Divine Hostess

Hey healthy bunnies,

I received a pretty strong response to my podcast survey asking for more affirmations! I can completely understand since many of us have some big goals to accomplish this year and it isn’t over yet!

Setting the tone at the beginning of the day is helpful, but don’t be afraid to revisit if things get a bit off kilter as the day progresses. Listen to these affirmations as often as you need, and please share with others who may need a boost!

15 Things I’d say to people about Pain for Awareness month

Please stop with the “it can’t be THAT bad” crap! Please & Thank you.

  1. A smile hides pain quite well. It doesn’t negate it.
  2. This façade is fake, the pain is real.
  3. You not believing my pain doesn’t invalidate it’s existence, just makes it harder to deal with if you mean anything to me. If you mean nothing to me, then likely you never will with that attitude.
  4. Just because I can do something one day, doesn’t mean I can the next. Pain is variable. It can be severe or sometimes more tolerable. It takes a lot of effort to do things because pain is fatiguing and requires recovery, but other times too much pain and I cannot function.
  5. Painsomnia is what we call not being able to sleep from pain alone.
  6. Paingry is what we call being angry because of the pain. Just being in pain and angry about it. Frustration and irritation can be taken out on others, or not. But it…
