Trigeminal Neuralgia

Everyone Can Remember Exactly When Their Trigeminal Neuralgia Started

I have a chronic pain condition called Trigeminal Neurgalia. Recently, I shared on Facebook that I've just had my three year neuralgiaversary and asked how long everyone else had been living with TN for. People commented who hadn't yet been diagnosed and people commented who had been living with TN for 20+ years. What struck me most is that, as far as I could see, everyone could remember exactly when they first were struck down with neuralgia.

Sometimes, you need to take a look at the whole picture, the bad and the good. If I weigh up what TN has taken from me, I can see that it has given me just as much back in return. I wouldn't change my life, not even the most painful moments.
