I've written a blog about chronic pain. Mainly so my friends and family can 'get it' but also so I don't have to keep repeating myself all the time! I feel like a weight has been lifted cause people will now have some idea what it is like. I haven't really gone too much into the dismal days but it is more like a semi inspirational/informational type blog. Now I'm perfectly aware that in the grand scheme of things, my pain isn't as bad or debilitating as many of yours here on the CP forum and half of it is being controlled reasonably well. In this sense I hope I don't offend anyone but as I say in my blog, just because there are people in worse situations than me, it doesn't make my challenges insignificant. :dry: Feel free to read (from second page, bottom post) if you would like, leave a comment if it'll work, or not read it at all (I completely understand) Thinking of you all x

I have just read it. That is excellent Kate! I hope a lot of people will find it and benefit from it. It explains chronic pain very clearly and it is very easy to understand. I will await the next instalment :)

Kate just reading your blog, excellently written, thought I better let you know where you have stated you went up to 30mg and bam, the next reference you have they decreased it from 20mg to 25mg Ithink you meant 30mg to 25mg, you might want to change it, otherwise good on you for putting your story out there.

Good on you Kate in being proactive and finding somewhere positive to tell your story about your journey with CP. Well Done!

I would leave a comment, but it will hook up to my google account and there goes my anonymity! So don't be disappointed if people don't leave a comment for such reasons; it doesn't mean people aren't reading and benefiting from your journey.

All pain is relative however, if it robs you of the ability to do things that you used to be able to do and enjoy; well, in my book, that makes us all equal from that perspective.

Don't forget about us on the forum though; your contributions here are valued too :)

Hugs,
Fee
