Ways of Dealing with Pain

Trying to work through a headache slowly turning into a migraine. I’ve always have this thing about living with headaches, I might as well do something because either way I’m going to be in pain. At least if I’m doing something I’ll get my mind off of it. It’s always been the way I fight through any type of pain, whether it’s a headache that turns into a migraine, chest pain, pelvic pain, etc. It’s something that has caused a lot of issues due to people assuming I must not be in that much pain if I can do “insert activity here.” Here’s the thing, I just deal with pain differently, it doesn’t mean I’m in less pain then what I’m describing.

Beware when you call people fakers, when you see them do things despite their pain. We all have our ways of dealing with pain. Don’t let your perception stigmatize someone.

I am feminist writer and poet trying to raise awareness on topics such as mental health and physical disabilities. I often write about things such as invisible illnesses and mental health/illness related topics.

  1. Yes! You’ve hit it right on the nail! When we are in pain, many times we deal with it by keeping busy. People assume that if we are in pain we should be in bed or crying out loud. When we refuse to let the pain get us completely down then it must not be that bad, right? Or maybe we were faking all along? Judging what others are experiencing without understanding their pain is all to common. Your post helps bring more understanding.
