Experience of: People who want to be more than pain have to work hard


That's not easy with a body that hurts.
If you want a better life despite your pain, you have to learn a lot but also give up a lot.

You have to do a lot, but you also have to leave a lot of things. It's just like with TOP sport. You need a trainer but also supporters. First of all, you have to accept that from now on, perhaps until the end of your life, pain will be a part of it.
You will have to accept your painful body….
You have to learn to deal with misunderstanding...
You will have to look for other hobbies
Sometimes people even lose their jobs and everything that was familiar to them changes!

it's smart to learn a little more about pain. How does pain affect other parts of your body and mind.
How does stress affect pain? More stress means more pain. That's why it's important to learn relaxation techniques.
And believe me, you can't learn that just by reading a book! More is needed for that. Only practice gives good results and it is wise to ask for help from a good therapist!

It is useful to know something about medication. What kind of medications do you use? When – why and for what purpose?

Keeping a pain diary can yield surprising results. Things written down often seem different from things you have in your head! Maybe you can discover what causes more pain so you can deal with it differently. That is difficult, demotivating and often discouraging.

At Pain-Hoop we know that if you have pain that lasts longer than normal, or pain that does not stop despite all your efforts, it makes you doubt yourself. You don't even dare to laugh in public, you don't go out, and you stop talking about your pain because no one understands!
And so chronic pain becomes a lonely battle against pain and misunderstanding.

That is why it is so important that people with chronic pain are properly guided at the beginning and not at the end of a long medical history! That is also better for the doctors, the insurance companies and, above all, for yourself.

But we realize that no one can do all this without help!
Fellow sufferers can help each other en van elkaar leren !
Therefore, physicians should tell their patients about the existence of patient organizations early in their pain patient careers.
Patient organizations usually have much more information than doctors.
People who work there know the conditions from their own experience.
Therefore, dare to contact one of our employees!

Chronische pijn is topsport bedrijven. Dus je hebt supporters nodig.
