Living with chronic pain.

Chronic Pain Warrior...

EDS. Yep, that's how I found out when my jaw started 'unsnapping' and 'snapping itself back together again.' If hips dislocating are a 10, knuckles a 0, then jaw is a 3. And that would be the 'Am I going to cry and scream uncontrollably until I'm hoarse and wish I could pass out but my drugs won't let me, so instead I'll collapse wherever I am and vomit for a few hours' scale, not the Baker-Wong Pain Scale. That Pain Scale stopped offering representative smiley/sad faces when I was 26...

Perspective. I still can't fit pain in here, somehow...

The symbol for EDS, bc supposedly in medical school future doctors are told when they hear hoof prints, think horses, not zebras, i.e. the simplest solution is usually what's wrong with the patient. EDS generally gets diagnosed later in life after the disabling pain sets in, bc it crosses so many boundaries within medical specialities, that unless a doctor that has heard of it and can tie the trail together, the symptoms are treated separately. Which is no bueno. We are zebras.

Pain & Chronic... So true!

From the Missed Connections Collection from artist Sophie Blackall who creates art around web posts of that missed encounter people just can't forget and hope the other person sees it and feels the same way. This one made me happy because I'd like to think there's someone somewhere who would do this for me. To: Phoenix w/ crutches. Msg: I would love to carry you around piggy back until you can walk again...
