July 5, 2023 – Deana Tsiapalis
Life with chronic pain often leaves you with a deep sense of grief though the loss of limb or the loss of the life you once had, having to relearn as you navigate the world around you while adapting to the changes you are left to deal with often with little to no guidance.
Grief is the normal and natural response to loss and loss comes in many forms. When it comes to chronic pain, these are just some of the losses our community experiences:
👉 Loss of mobility
👉 loss of control
👉 loss of identity
👉 loss of purpose
👉 loss of meaningful relationships
👉 loss of living their values
👉 Loss of safety
👉 Loss of the life they once knew
👉 Financial losses, employment and career losses
and worst of all…
Loss of hope.
In this episode we’ll delve into the key components of grief as it relates to the chronic pain experience. Join us as we explore the interconnections and commonalities between the two as we offer insights and tools to inspire those who are doing their very best to navigate the crossroads of chronic pain and grief.
