On Thursday this week, I was published on the Australian Pain Society’s blog.

The Australian Pain Society is a multidisciplinary body aiming to relieve pain and related suffering through leadership in clinical practice, education, research and public advocacy.

This is a new blog they have just set up so head over and check them out, they have lots of information and stories they will be putting up over the next few weeks. 

Life with Foggy Frog and the Pain Gang

For the past 9 months I’ve been living with chronic pain, brain fog and fatigue. Although fatigue doesn’t really begin to describe it; it’s more like having an elephant sitting on you making it hard to move your body and having your brain be complete mush.

To begin with I didn’t have any idea of how to deal with it; I spent my days collapsed on the couch unable to do anything. After searching for the right GP and doing tonnes of research I almost have a complete support team including my family, my GP, and an acupuncturist; I’m still looking for a good specialist to complete the team. With the support of this team I have begun to slowly learn how to manage my symptoms so that I can have some a positive life.

    I had no idea yet what the Foggy Frog and the Pain Gang WERE! That’s the bees in my opera glove! The monster in my arm/box. I just never gave them actual names! What a clever way to create a space between you and your pain. I’ve done it in a small way, but your way seems so much more open and direct. As suzanne vega said in one of my favorite songs, “learn the outline and things will tell you their name”, and that’s what you have done. Thanks for the excellent example, and congrats on being reposted on the APC site. well done!
