Living with Chronic Pain | Flare-Up Day Vlog

Thanks! Share it with your friends!


Hey guys! This was day 4 of a 5-day #chronicpain flare-up. I wanted to share my experience of how I cope and care for myself during times like this. Extremely happy to say on day 5, I was able to walk, manage my pain and even lift weights for 20 minutes which was a huge accomplishment! In the past my flare-ups have lasted a lot longer at times because I refused to stop, pay attention and listen to what my body needed at any given moment. It’s still a struggle to bridge the gap between my active self and my still self, but one major thing I’ve learned is that remaining full of as much positivity and self-compassion as I can is a big component of what helps my body heal that much faster. I hope this helps give you guys some ideas and makes you feel less alone during your own flare-up days. I’d love to hear your favorite ways to deal and heal! Lots of love ♥

Jeanne D'Arc says:

Command PB Stardust (SAY THIS 3 TIMES IN YOUR MIND) Pleiadian protocol for removal of chronic pain has been proven to be about 80% effective. Main factors reducing the effectivity of the protocol are suppressed guilt, suppressed negative emotions, past life soul contracts with the dark forces and extremely complex and / or strong medical conditions.

You need to understand that this protocol in most cases does not heal the cause of the pain, it just adjusts the central nervous system so that is decreases the pain signal. Moderate pain signal is then simply a sign that something is wrong with the physical body and medical attention is needed. This protocol is NOT a substitute for medical intervention by conventional and / or alternative medicine.

The Light forces have requested that this protocol gets viral as it has the power to drastically reduce the amount of unnecessary suffering on the surface of the planet.

I'm having a nasty flare up too. It hurts a bit to type but I wanted to say thank you.

Erin's World says:

I also take horrible tmj and went to an oral surgeon it's help so much

Katherine Rojas Williams says:

Thank you for all you do. I'm so happy to have found my way to being here. <3

I keep adding more and more suppliments to my list trying to help myself so I understand your health care predicament. Everything offered causes long term damage. I keep trying diets. The mostly raw veggies. But I can't do that when I have a big flare up. I can only eat simple to make/ microwave things and can't stomach veggies. Then I feel so guilty like I'm causing this with my poor diet. I definitely don't have it in me to juice when feeling that down. But this is pushing 30 years with chronic illness. This kind of illness has all kinds of emotional elements and I find often but not always that depression coincides with the flare ups. If someone messes with me during that time it can set me off into a real bad place.
I think this kind of illness makes you feel scared and sad and helpless on a visceral level. To all those of you who face this, my heart goes with you, may you find some peace and happiness ❤.

Have you tried going to a spine institute that is close to you. I did that and I did nerve block for my spine. I was to the point I couldnt walk. I feel better compare what I used to have. I do have pain sometimes in the cold weather and it bothers me when someone pads me on my back. But the pain compare to what I used to have has calm down.

How did this start darlin?

Lori Newcomb says:

So how does your chronic pain affect your job..or can you work. I find this has been a set back for me.

Jess & CallingEve says:

thank you for opening up and sharing this video, it really means alot to see a video that gives a realistic insightful view of what it is to live with chronic pain <3

Kimber Leann says:

How come you're not a miserable wretch who hates everyone? The differences between us!

Ashley Kole Hutcherson says:

Thank you for this!!!

Jon G says:

Dealing with my own flareup at the moment, and the development of new symptoms so I can relate (have an appointment with my GI doctor tomorrow as well but I have a feeling I'm going to have to fight again for the test I want for a diagnosis). Keep up the fight!

BbguM gnarl says:

God girl,you need to get counselling people,absolutely lovely,honest,refreshing take on dealing with chronic pain.
You have a special spark about you. Hope all is ok.

S LFit says:

You are such a blessing sweet girl – thank you for having the courage to tell
your story

Yannick Mulumba says:

Just the courage to do such a personal vlog is something that's almost impossible for me. I may be clinical in talking about sickle cell, but to speak with the intent do go public, I am impressed for sure. Thank you for doing that. My pain starts in the lumbar area and goes into my legs, usually and that's how it starts. Anyhow… Thanks. You're stronger than most.

Dealing with a flare-up right now. This video helped me so much

Tayler Langille says:

I've been told off by so many doctors that I'm to the point where I'm in a walker and that is why I don't upload anymore

Paul Eckert says:

Sorry your going through this. I have had chronic pain for 10 years now. I have severe diabetic nerve damage to my legs and feet. Its hell on a daily basis. Its like getting electric shocks at random. I also have white matter deases. It gives me major migraines every few days. Alot of time i am in bed. I try to stay positive but at times its not easy. Your video is very inspirational and i like how in all this you keep your smile. One thing I can tell anyone in chronic pain. Dont start on pain meds. I wish i would have never touched the stuff. It has so many bad side effects. Anyhoo i hope you have more better days. Stay strong.

jschritz says:

Its easy to forget that as an individual, we aren't the only ones dealing with pain. Sometimes it feels that way, and I thank you for sharing what you are dealing with. Sharing the range of circumstances and the different ways we deal and rise above chronic pain gives hope to those in the middle of it.

Geovana Gonzalez says:

thank you for making this video for once in my life time I finally feel like I'm not alone

jalasword says:

You sound like you have been inside my head. I have never looked up chronic pain videos before, either. But, I'm so surprised at how validating this video has been for me. Talking to people who don't, can't or, never will understand what I'm feeling, is like spinning my tires in the mud. You should start a little support group here on YouTube just for people like us. Your video has given me a couple of little ideas to try for myself. After 10 years of this pain I thought that I had tried it all. When you mentioned a couple of things like, not being able to really eat when you are in so much pain, touched a nerve. I teared up. On days when my pain meds aren't even doing anything to help the only way I know that they have done anything at all is because I don't feel like I'm going to vomit. If I drink a bottle of water and eat as soon as I'm not nauseous anymore it seems to help a lot. If I'm due for my second round of meds I take them just before I prepare something to eat. There have been days when I have to count my medication multiple times a day. Because, I hurt so badly I'm not sure if I took them or not. Anyway, I won't hold you up much longer. I just felt like I had to let you know how deeply thankful I am for this video. I know it's hard to be positive when you are hurting. Maybe, those days you can just be thankful for the gift of vision. I have to do that. Just find something to be thankful for every day keeps you from falling into the rut of negativity. It's easy to fall into that, so quickly. Thank you, so much for sharing. Thank you so much for letting me know that I'm not crazy. Most of all, thank you for being the strong, wonderful woman that you are! 🙂

Thankyou with my whole heart. I am currently day 2 in a flare up and the negativity is in high gear. funnily enough this is the first time Ive dealt with a flare up on painkillers…..I have always ridden the pain wave in full sensation…not because Im hardcore but because I have had no way of getting to a doctor because I cant walk stand take a shower or even get to a toilet. Luckily I have just gotten over a double middle ear infection and had some panadine forte left over so Ive been popping them…I have a degenerative disc in my L5. My doctor told me there is actually nothing wrong with me….other then the disc….oh and the periodic nerve pain which can last for weeks at a time disrupting my whole life…..sorry venting. In short you dont make me feel alone. .. thankyou x

Having a good pet helps the pain.  I have a cute border collie.  I started my pain at 29.  I am fasting and praying for you and all that are in pain this morning.  God Bless You.
