Mental impact of pain!

Mental health 1

Living with a chronic illness can be really debilitating. It may have both – physical and mental impact.

The toll that it takes on your body affects your ability to cope with psychological and emotional stress.

Not only can a chronic illness make it impossible for you to do the things that you used to you enjoy, but it can also rob you of a sense of hope for the future.

Blogs are usually focused on one niche. However, chronic illness, chronic pain, and mental wellness are always connected and should not be seen as separate!

Being diagnosed with a chronic illness produces plenty of intense and long-lasting feelings. Illnesses such as endometriosis can impact on mental well-being in various ways:

  • • Anxiety over the unknown future.
  • • Depression because of the loss of “old self”.
  • • Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder which aims to feel more in control.

Everything leads to exhaustion, fear and guilt because of demands made on family and friends. Feelings of frustration and sadness are also quite common when you realize the life you once knew is now different.

Our physical and mental health are inextricably linked!

Long-term conditions can’t be cured, only managed. They come with a risk of social isolation, low self-esteem, stigma, and even discrimination.

These days it is more important than ever to spread awareness and fight the stigma.

Express yourself

Living with mental illness may be in some cases difficult to describe. But my wife discovered another way, it can be truly healing – put your story in writing.

This is why I originally started Worry Head blog, to tell the story of my wife’s chronic illness, but also to raise awareness about mental health, which undoubtedly affects many people who suffer from chronic pain.

Sometimes it’s easier to say it with the written word.

Regardless of mental illness, you can fight the stigma. Help us combat these barriers and express yourself on our blog!

Some people may never truly understand the day-to-day struggles of a person with anxiety, depression, or OCD, but you can show them how it feels by writing your heart out!

It will help to open their eyes to what you are going through.

Safe place

Worry Head is a safe place to express your thoughts, regardless of who you are.

Besides, writing is medicine for your mind.

Whenever you feel exhausted mentally or emotionally, writing things down will help you structure your thoughts and bring peace to your mind.

Besides, many therapists recommend investing time in writing every day to improve your mental well-being.

Chronic pain gives women a lot of problems – it’s invisible and no one can see it.

The very fact that you cannot explain how you feel, or you’re simply fed up with endless repeating, that makes you feel stressed.

This was always the case for my wife, and that is the case for many women.

As her husband, I wanted to break this pattern, and so I decided to create this small chronic pain self-help kit.
