I Am Tired of People Competing Over Who Has Suffered More

    Got Another One For Ya!!!! (like There Isn't Enough)

    Oh, yeah, I had another one who was screaming when her "old pain doctor died (uh huh) and fifteen years of records of treating her for RSD was reduced to seven pages, and boo hooo now I can only get 300mg MS Contin and 90mg of MS-immediate release." On my old regimen, I had days...

    My Husband Does This.

    Every time something happens to me or I get sick or anything I never mention it to my husband anymore. When I used to he would always come back with how he was/is sooooo much worse off as if I have nothing to complain about and he deserves all the sympathy.

    Suffering

    We all have suffered at some point. It's just perspective that makes it so different.  My friend and I would sometimes get into arguments as to who suffers more with BDD. To end it, I just say that we have suffered at the same level.

    "I've had it worse than you" "Somebody out

    there has it worse than you" "____ is happening in _____ country" Whether or not that's true, I feel that people saying that when hearing about a struggle someone's going through makes them seem like they're trying to invalidate someone's pain, which isn't right. You might as...

    Pain Is Not A Competition

    Everybody has pain. Your pain is no worse, or no better than mine. It just is. I think my worst experience was telling a pain doctor that my pain level was an 8, He looked at me and said, I think it really should be a 2 or a 3. I was not there looking for narcotics, I just wanted...

    What's With The Competition?

    Everyone has a different kind of pain and I don't see why people compete on who has suffered more and the longest.

    Something I Learned A Long Time Ago...

    You can sympathize...and you can have shared a similar experience...but when another is in pain, no one can truly truly understand what they feel. Everyone feels pain differently, and sooner we all realize this, the sooner we come to realize that what to you, might be minor, to...

    People.

    People really do this??? hmmmm...  I guess I don't view it as a competition, I view it as them expressing their hurts and where they've been.  To me it's never been a competition in my eyes because it's how they're feeling and how they're hurting.

    Get Over It!
