Day 30: #MHAM #MHAMBC Favorite post of the blogathon

Day 26: #MHAM #MHAMBC Hope and hopeless: and begin again

Choose your own hope topic: Please choose your own topic related to living with hope and write about it.

"Living with hope is both feeling like you have a life to live and that there is something worthwhile in the future to live for. When we are hopeless many things fail us to put us in that state. We often say we are existing and not living. Treatment is failing us utterly in the present And we do not foresee any reason to believe that will change. 

Partially this can be blamed on medical professionals. Doctors do not have the experience to handle chronic pain patients. They are not well educated in it, so when it comes to treating it they are extremely limited in imagination. Therefore we need specialists; migraine specialists, neurologists or pain clinics. However, in complicated cases even they can simply 'run out of ideas' and nothing can destroy your hope more than being told they have nothing more they can do and basically they are going to pass the buck to someone else. In Canada this often means an additional Long wait list when you were already on a Long wait list."

I was hoping to pick one of the excellent posts I had read during this great blog for awareness this month, but I have a kicker of a migraine right now... so limited time online for me.

This is my favorite blog post because I explored the reasons we can lose hope, what I think about hope and what I do when I lose hope. Losing hope can happen with chronic pain. I would not say it is inevitable, but it can happen. For a multiple about of reasons and factors, so we have to deal with that state and know what we can do to lift ourselves out of it.
