Make Pain Your Bitch
Has your chronic illness stolen the life you had?
Have you put your dreams on hold?
Does having to spend days, weeks, or months recovering from an outing make you feel like a prisoner in your own home/body?
Have you accepted that your chronic illness will be with you for the rest of your life?
Are you afraid to let go of the past?
Do you use your chronic illness as an excuse to not do what you want?
Does your pain management plan address your pain and symptoms, mask your pain, or do nothing at all?
Who controls your life? You or your illness?
Are you ready to make pain your bitch?
What are you waiting for?
In my eBook Make Pain Your Bitch: How to Dominate Your Chronic Life I share the areas of my life that I needed to take ownership over and the changes that had to be made in regards to my diet, lifestyle, and mindset. My book won’t cure you, but if you follow the steps that I took to make changes to my treatments, pain management plan, and life, you will recognize what changes you need to make. Throughout the book I prompt you to examine your life, then I challenge you to make changes.
I haven’t been healed. Fibromyalgia, psoriatic arthritis, psoriasis, and endometriosis are NOT curable. However, my pain management plan has decreased my daily pain, how often I flare, and the severity of my flares. I have gone from leaving the house once or twice a month in a wheelchair and having to ride lying down in the back seat, because of pain that was so intense I couldn’t sit, stand, or walk for more than 5 minutes without wanting to pass out from it to living the life I live now. What is that life? I no longer need a wheelchair! I still use a walker for all day outings, but how often I need to use it continues to decrease. I can drive myself anywhere I want!! I am no longer a prisoner of pain!! These improvements were unexpected. They also weren’t necessary for me to begin living passionately and purposefully as I began thriving long before I regained my physical independence and you can too!
Chronic illnesses are not death sentences. There is hope and it is possible to live a fulfilling and pleasurable life with less pain. I began winning my battle with chronic pain six years ago and continue to improve. With that said, all of my physical improvements could disappear tomorrow and I would still love my life. Why? Because I have learned to live passionately and purposefully no matter what my body throws at me. I have learned to work with my diseases, instead of constantly battling them.
Do you want to dominate your chronic life?
You can begin dominating your chronic life for less than a venti Starbucks iced Macchiato!
Share this post with your friends and family so we can all live purposefully and passionately despite our chronic pain!
