Living with a condition like Trigeminal Neuralgia can be a challenging and often isolating experience.

Gratitude, empathy and mindfulness have emerged as powerful tools to navigate the challenges posted by TN. Inspired by the book The Resilience Project by Hugh van Cuylenburg, I have embraced the GEM framework, all of which have become part of my coping strategy. Practicing gratitude has shifted my focus from the pain to the positive aspects of my life. Empathy has helped me connect with others who may be experiencing their own challenges similar to the camaraderie found among members of our support group. Mindfulness meditation has helped in managing the mental and emotional toll of the condition.

As part of my ongoing journey towards self-care and coping, I recently incorporated the “The Smiling Mind” app into my routine. This free app offers a diverse range of meditations, including those focused on mental fitness, calmness, stress reduction and sleep. The sleep meditation exercises on the app have been particularly effective for me. The soothing guidance provided by The Smiling Mind app have improved my sleep quality contributing to an overall improvement in my wellbeing.

I hope this helps others in similar situations to explore these techniques and discover their own personalised methods of coping.
