You have landed in a safe and secure zone to discuss and vent your frustrations. As a person that suffer with chronic pain daily, I am too privy on the many ways in disgust that chronic pain people are suffering through. I appreciate coaching people with chronic pain, subsequently low back pain which affects almost every other part of your lower body when inflamed and can cause all sorts of emotions to grow. Quality of life is important to everyone’s peace and happiness, and when this is taking away, then what do you have left?
The impact of dealing with worker’s compensation litigation for those that have been fighting for their benefits for years of lingering litigation cases causing us financial strains, stress, depression and for some even suicide. “Yes”, the physical and mental impairment that limits major life activities like levels of functioning from fusions and laminectomies can affect ones means of relating to and communicating with others and the way in which they relate to pain. It affects ones psychosocial, social familial and vocational areas which equates to an increase in chronic pain.
The new DEA rules are also adding to suffers in a way like no other. Innocent patients whom been prescribed opiate medication some for years are now all being pooled together with those who sell on black market and those with opioid addiction. The restrictions now have doctors writing prescriptions for 30-day supply and about 4 visits a year. Labeling chronic pain patients as drug seekers and other negative labels is not fair and needs to be highly addressed with our legislators. Why should we be allowed to suffer on top of the pain. Although doctors are being monitored by the DEA on the amount of prescriptions to write, the DEA has made it even more easier for doctors to make money by now offering patients more injections such as spinal blocks, cortisone epidural injections, trigger point and other nerve block injections. It cost more to give injections that with most are so temporary and useless than to write a prescription that may have been giving them better quality of life. Some doctors have given up their pain management specialty altogether due to the changing rules in fear of losing their license to practice medicine. We need to stand together as a group and write your nearest legislative congressman to leave us alone.
This will be a forum will you can come and discuss your frustrations so that your voice can be heard.
I write many quotes and post them on my social media accounts on various topics that society in a whole could relate to. Unfortunately, since they are quotes, they are short and summarized into one small paragraph, so some may not get the just of the quotes. I needed to touch on the subject especially as it relates in relationships with so many finding themselves falling victim in toxic relationships with people that have undiagnosed emotional disorders. So many people are finding themselves spending months if not years un-meaningful and unhappy relationships that result in breakups, domestic violence and codependency. Understand that you cannot change a person. The brain has been hard wired into protecting themselves from any further damage that may have been done sometime during the development years. Many have grown to experience abuse or neglect in their childhood rather it be ptsd, anxiety, depression or any other disorder that lead to being emotionally damaged. The individual in their own right has always used their current living and working conditions as their safety net. These people are angry and bitter, they find it difficult to accept compliments, show affection or real intimacy or give praise or compliments and they are negative and will toxify any and every relationship which they are a part of.
Sometimes you may find yourself drawn to a person who has learned throughout their lives how to act out the part that attracts a nice looking individual with that sparkling personality, could have what you thought was your dream life partner. Now you have found yourself trying desperately to figure this person out as they take you through the motions from their toxic personality of an emotionless, unaffectionate and isolated person that live their lives in fear. They fear to ever step out of their comfort zones and are really envious that you have the courage to set realistic goals that they cannot. You surround yourself with good friends and family, you may be frequent traveler and they will envy you of these things you have accomplish or have the courage that they do not possess. You are left wondering why, why, why, and wishing on ways in which you can fix them.
They try to convince others around them that they are happy people when in fact they are miserable, depressed people who could never set any realistic goals until they have admitted to themselves they need or desire help. They fear change, although they may desire change, they really do not trust their own abilities. Remaining stuck and stagnated for years have kept them living in their own prisons.
Don’t waste your time trying to change these individuals whom obviously has been broken way before you even came along. They would never admit that they have issues and that they may benefit in the future from therapy, in fact, they would befriend you, argue and disagree with you if you even suggest to them that they might have these long standing issues. I have had friends and foes in the past that as well as myself stuck in a toxic relationship.
