I have been living with chronic pain for roughly 13 years now and I had no idea that September is Pain Awareness Month. I have had surgery on my spine twice and once on my chest that has removed tumours that have been classed as Sarcomas and that July was Sarcoma Awareness Month.
Earlier today I came across a really great blog about pain. This is by someone like myself that is living every day in chronic pain. Had I known or even realised a wee bit earlier, rather than finding out on 21/09/10 that it’s Pain Awareness Month, then I could have done something about it. However, I still can and will do some campaigning.

How many times do we think to ourselves that we are going to reply to that. Then we think, yeah I will but I will do it later as I have something to watch etc. Then later comes and we’ve forgotten all about it and what we were going to do.
That’s happened to me many times before, so rather than think about it I sat and wrote my comments about this blog and here they are;
Thank you Alysaa for this blog. I’ve been living with chronic pain for roughly 13 years now, yet I had no idea about Pain Awareness Month. Like so many men and women, I am in pain 24/7 and you get so so tired of it. Here are a few examples of how tired I can get:
Tired of living in pain.
Tired of taking so many medications.
Tired of the side effects of some medications.
Tired of speaking to medical professionals about it.
Tired of trying numerous medications.
Tired of it taking over my life and missing out in so many things with family and friends etc.
Tired of so many issues that affect everyone and our families.
Sick and tired of many people that say “oh hi Kev, you’re looking well, looking good etc”, especially when some people have no idea of how we are feeling in the inside!
Take care Alyssa and best wishes from Scotland
