The fear of pain can be worse then the pain itself

Just like anything the fear of pain at times is worse then the pain itself. There were probably thousands of times over the years that I cancelled plans, stayed hidden away from the world, and made up any excuse possible to not have to do something because I was scared my pain would be too much and not only would I not have fun but the people around me would no longer think I was “fun.”
Fear doesn’t have to be a terrible thing. My fear of what would happen to my body and life if I continued taking pain medicine is what led me to go back to dealing with chronic pain naturally. Shit, life is scary especially with chronic pain. I always looked at fear as a terrible thing, turns out it probably saved my life.
