Does anyone knows if this is ACTUALLY working and worth the money?
No, chronic pain is not a “part time job”, not at all, it”s a full time job. If you think otherwise you have no idea what you are talking about.
First, you’re commenting on the wrong blog post. Second, my blog posts are generally about MY experiences. My post about chronic pain being a p/t job refers explicitly about the amount of time it takes to deal with the bureaucracies of doctors, insurers, prescriptions, etc. (dealing with the pain itself is full-time). Because of the nature of MY body, MY diagnoses and MY situation, I don’t take many prescriptions and no daily ones, and my dealings with doctors (& so insurance) are sporadic and occurs in bursts. I am fortunate my insurance usually covers most things, so I don’t have to deal with some of the wrangling and hardships others do. I am sure for many others with their bodies and diagnoses, it can be and is a f/t job. But I do not need anyone, especially a man, telling me I do not know my own health experience. Women have a long history of being told their health experiences are wrong or that they do not know what they are talking about. And that needs to change.
Succinct, educational and enjoyable reading
