Pain is such a small word with such big impact.
Chronic pain....makes me shudder. I hesitate to say what I have right now is chronic pain because for the most part, it will disappear with delivery.
It is a seemingly constant every day of my pregnancy though.
Most days, I wake up at the very least stiff & uncomfortable. Some days, it is all I can do to get out of bed and support my own weight on my hip and back.
Mood changing- yes
I had an interesting conversation about it this weekend. Part of the conversation was about....
How Pain can cause personality changes. Understandable to anyone who has had any extended bout with pain. Probably not to those who haven't had this experience.
I miss my old personality....some would describe me as happy, some bubbly, some would say air-headed. I miss that person.
For those dealing with my current non-bubbly personality, thank-you. Thank you for understanding that sometimes the misery of pain overtakes me. Thanks for bearing with me in my current state of being. Just thank-you!!
