As I am a pain patient myself, allow me to say this loud and clear: If we are waiting for our doctors to cure our chronic pain, it may never happen. The best they can do is to help reduce our pain by medications and/or injections. They can’t help us with the way chronic pain has affected our finances, our families, marriage issues, lack of access to different facilities and the list can go on and on. What we need is a different system of care. We need a system where the patients are at the center of the care and not the doctors. Cure and health are states of being that needs to be reached and achieved by patients and cannot be dictated to them.
At the same time, we as chronic pain patients have to take more responsibility about our health and well being. We have to take an active role in our care. Our doctors can tell us to improve our diet, to walk every day and do exercises that help our condition. They can direct us on how to use our medication and give us information about relaxation and meditation. However, they cannot do these things for us. It is our duty to take control of our lives and do what is essential for our improvement.
Our Doctors Can’t Cure Our Chronic Pain
If we take an active role in reaction to our disease then the healing will come from inside our existence. It can’t be injected to us. We have to gain it.
There are tremendous new research information leading towards MIND BODY effects and the use of this approach in medicine, including chronic pain. That is why I wrote about MIND BODY TEMPLE. This approach, as a modern era spirituality with medicinal healing effects, can be used to help our chronic pain. This is a new way of life that would improve health and well being, as well as, improve medical conditions like chronic pain. But, it cannot happen and cannot be done without us taking the central stage role in this show.
Our doctors can’t cure our chronic pain completely. If it is going to happen, it has to be done by us.
