If you suffer from chronic pain, you probably know that it can sometimes be difficult for your loved ones to know what to say or do to help. But getting the right kind of emotional support is crucial to the management of your condition. The good news is that you can show your support network how to help you – even if you feel like you’re not getting the support you need at the moment.
According to our Stoke on Trent chiropractor, you should surround yourself with people who are good listeners and are willing to work on understanding your condition. Tell your support network that there may be days when you feel in extreme pain and that you may not be able to take part in certain activities. You should also tell those close to you that there are likely to be days when you feel down or depressed. The more your support network understands your condition – and the different ways it may impact your life – the more support they will be able to offer you.
It’s really important to reach out to those around you. If they’re not proving the right kind of support that you need, the likelihood is they just need a little nudge in the right direction. Many people say or do nothing for fear of saying or doing the wrong thing. Talk to your chiropractor about getting the support you need from your family and friends. Communication goes a long way!
