I'm not disabled, I just do things a little differently, because I have to and that's okay!
Then my entire face went numb.
I see why you're supposed to brush your teeth morning and night. I love the fresh feeling in the morning and it definitely is good to give your teeth a good clean at the end of the day, but it's okay to do things a little differently.
When my GP first suggested I attend my local pain clinic, I wasn't sure what to expect, so I went scouring the Internet and couldn't find much information there either. I hate the unknown, so I thought I'd write a little about my experiences, so if you're reading this and you don't know what to expect from visiting a pain clinic, hopefully a little information from me will comfort you.
I get the worst 'brain fog' in the world. Sometimes, my mind just won't co-operate with the rest of me! I get it both from the medication and from simply being in pain. I could possibly call it 'pain fog'!
For some people, social media is a place to impress and where we can take a look at their fantastic lives. My social media is the place where you can see me at my worst, where I'm complaining about being in pain, whinging about medication, feeling absolutely rotten and letting the world know.
As, most of the time, I'm noticing it on my left side, I do tend to shrug it off with a quick 'oh, it's on my bad side, it's on my TN''s side, I'll be fine', because everything that happens on my left side just tends to be down to my TN!
