Blogging prompt for fibro & chronic illness bloggers
This blogging idea is about PAIN. Everyone gets it, even babies, but how do you explain it to others especially your family and do you think they understand or even believe you?
Do you find this image true? Have you ever felt this from a loved one? Did you verify the feeling with them? Many of us with fibromyalgia get looks of doubt or doubting comments from family and friends about our levels of pain. Some doctors even still question whether fibro pain is real! I think this is because they don't yet fully understand what causes fibro pain and what makes it continue and not go away. After all most people will just take a painkiller and their pain will go away and not come back so this is their expectation with pain.
How do you convey your pain to others? Do you even think it is important to tell those around you or do you keep it to yourself?
I hope you get some ideas here for creating a post around pain.
