Pain Awareness Month

Pain Awareness Month
As September is Pain Awareness Month and 100% of people with Fibromyalgia experience pain, I thought it was fitting to share quotes about pain and specifically chronic pain. 

Chronic pain is considered to be any pain that lasts for 3 months or longer and that is definitely the case in Fibro. 

Chronic pain is widely believed to represent disease itself. It can be made much worse by environmental and psychological factors. Chronic pain persists over a longer period of time than acute pain and is resistant to most medical treatments. It can—and often does—cause severe problems for patients. NINDS

“Of pain you could wish only one thing: that it should stop. Nothing in the world was so bad as physical pain. In the face of pain there are no heroes.” George Orwell, 1984

“I'm in pain all the time,' I said, 'and if I gave into it then I'd do nothing.”

“If I only could explain 
How much I miss
that precious moment 
when I was free
from the shackles of chronic pain.” 
Jenni Johanna Toivonen

“The erosion of an effective patient-physician relationship has no place when dealing with chronic pain. Worst of all, dismissing the patient's pain is as devastating as crushing a patient's hope.” 
― Melissa Cady, Paindemic: A Practical and Holistic Look at Chronic Pain
