I’ve had chronic pain at least half of my life (15+ years) due to a life long term disability. I don’t know if anyone can relate to this because no one in my real life does.
Sometimes (mostly first thing in the morning) I almost…forget, that there’s something wrong with me and then I go to sit up and remember, I’m painfully different. Or trying to simply get up and go, I realize I can’t the moment I try to stand on my own.
Does anyone else feel this? If so, how do you cope? My coping methods aren’t healthy in the least so any advice would be great.
