Small Wins

Small wins are worth celebrating too. Sometimes they’re the biggest wins of all.

This should remain a daily reminder in all of us who live with intractable pain and illnesses.

Depression has a tendency to latch on when physical pain and symptoms become more severe than average.

I have a hard time when a flare has me at an 8 or above on the pain scale. Mental health declines. I know I’m not alone in that and neither are you.

It feels alone though, doesn’t it?

Celebrate those things you’ve achieved in severity.

If you helped someone else laugh for a moment in their own unrelenting pain, despair and uncertainty take a moment within yourself to acknowledge that you did. Thats ok. It may have been all you could give or contribute.

That’s a win for both of you.

  1. I cannot imagine being under constant pain. I inflamed a spinal nerve once, and that alone was enough to have me dreading every waking moment (which apparently would increase due to the lack of sleep).

    So for you to find the strength to celebrate the small wins despite all this is a real beautiful thing. Thanks for sharing, and wishing you all the best!
