This is my Blogtober day 14 post and I wanted to share my biggest fear about my chronic pain.

My Blogtober prompts list

I have accepted my pain, and I know I’m going to have it for the rest of my life – unless by some miracle it disappears all by itself. Which is extremely doubtful And although I am in pain every single day, I have learned to cope with it. I can manage it quite well, and I am getting good at hiding it from others (some days I just can’t hide it though as it is far too painful).

But there is one thing that I fear the most and it terrifies me, and that is: getting old and sitting in a chair all day because I can’t walk about anymore, or even being in a wheelchair.

I would literally be in constant pain and would not be able to cope. These days, walking is a huge part of my pain management and is key to helping me cope each day and is brilliant for my wellbeing. But if that was ever taken away from me then I would struggle.

I don’t think about it too much, as when I do I start to panic a little bit. I’ve got enough to worry about now without dwelling on the distant future.

What’s your biggest fear about your chronic pain?

    I fear similar issues. I have been stuck in a vertigo bout for a year now and now use a cane. I fear… it will never go away and I will be stuck like this forever. The pain, well, that is difficult enough to deal with but the vestibular disorder has really screwed with my functionality.

      I’m sorry to hear you have the same similar fears. It’s not easy at times is it. The key for me is focusing on the ‘now’ as much as I can. It would drive us crazy if we worried about the future more than necessary. Hugs x
