Default yes and no

I have chronic pain from TN2 and Parkinson's, but more times than not I find the noises of daily living a good distraction from pain. other times not so much.

I feel like my chronic pain turned me into a different person. Noise irritates me to no end (and I work in a school). When the noise gets to be too much, I rub my temple. My family and coworkers respond very kindly to this silent request.

Three things I don't enjoy anymore that I used to love: listening to music, reading, and writing. Pain took them away.

Aw, Cheryl.
I was saddened to read your post and then quickly realized I was resonating with your post. I've lost my love for the same when in chronic pain, which has been 99% of the time lately.

Group hug!

That's one of the things I don't understand about this chronic pain. I feel like it changed me into someone else.

Cheryl, I think the chronic pain is so stressful, we don't have the resources left to deal with other things/people/events as easily as we used to do so. I think, for me, it can wear down my resources and steal a large portion of any patience I may have had available to help me to cope.

In addition, I have found some pain meds help the pain but also amplify sound for me. Have others found this as well?

Gentle group hug!

Thumbs down

I have chronic, debilitating nausea, sometimes with pain. I can't listen to other's noise when I do. I have to turn on the AC to drown it out.

I also often drown out noises with my AC. It' almost like "white noise." I also need the AC in hot, humid weather, thus the AC helps me with both issues. it truly serves as a buffer from noises which can, otherwise, feel "jolting."

Dearest Eva,

I must tell you, as I am sure others have as well -- despite your pain, which is truly significant, and maybe because of your pain-- you are gifted with such beautiful creative and loving energy. Thank you for sharing your beauty with each of us here. I wish you peace, comfort and JOY!
Gentle hugs!

Hi, yes I am bothered by pain with CRPS,fibromyalgia, especially when my pain is really bad like 10+. Loud music or other loud noises are ncluded. You don't realize the load we live with everyday until you are in chronic pain.
