The cycle of pain

Oh, pain. How you play with me.

Today I had a moment where I realised the phases of the chronic pain cycle never fail to surprise me. I am constantly astounded, impressed or furious at the way my body and my mind responds to coping with pain – like I haven’t been here before.

The length of each phase varies, but it’s always there. It’s always in cycle. It’s always chronic pain. the cycle

Aaaaaand repeat.

Over and over and over again.
