Over thirty years I have suffered chronic pain from a skin condition that effects joints as well as skin. My life consists of pain medications and anti depressants not forgetting TENS pain control.
Now I contribute to Pain Concern a sister page to this one. Pain causes many mental health problems, when you consider what is going on, you feel that you are being attacked from all sides and this is not helped by a uncaring society.
My condition is a reactive depression that can be brought on by pain and reactions associated with it.
Over the years I have done voluntary work in a contact mental health group, sadly I have just moved from my old home of many years and am trying too find my way through the NHS, The losing of my doctor of thirty years is a great loss to me and now I am feeling so alone as I will need to trust a new practice and a new home area. Now I live in a bungalow that will need adapting for my conditions.
It is hoped that I can contribute to this site and give some form of support to all who need it, hopefully you all can do the same for me
All the very best
