Different Manifestations of Pain

Pain doesn’t limit its effects to the immediate pain felt. The way we live our lives and cope can become slowly compromised. Ask yourself if these are normal for you:

  • Have a hard time falling asleep
  • Tossing and turning in bed
  • Wake up in the middle of the night
  • Disturbing dreams
  • Feeling tired in the morning
  • Wake up in a bad mood
  • Little patience for daily habits
  • Bad behavior towards family
  • Short temper towards strangers
  • Constant guilt over behavior
  • Excessive worrying
  • Sudden crying spells
  • Compulsive behaviors
  • Frequent boredom
  • Lack of motivation
  • Avoiding friends and social events
  • Avoiding planning for the future
  • Difficulty finding ‘the point’ of things

Sometimes the hardest thing to do is ask for help when you’re feeling weak. But to reach out and find support in the hard times is the smartest thing you can do. Suffering silently will not make you stronger; use the wisdom of those around you to overcome your challenges and bring you to the best version of your life.
