Chronic Pain with a Higher Perspective

I have missed writing, but when I am doing advocacy work, I seem to fall in head first and get lost. It seems like everything is urgent because it takes so long to finally see the results of your hard work.  You can hardly tell that you are making any difference. It really is hard work to go in with credible information.  I applaud anyone that has made the trip to visit their elected officials and given them an education on what the chronic pain community is going through these days.

I have taken to twitter encouraging everyone in the chronic pain community to get their voices heard by reaching out to their legislators.  I had a few people that said they were too scared to speak out because of retribution, ie: they will lose access to the small amount of medicine that they need to be able to function.

    You doing the digging, the sweat equity now for years to come. Set realist expectations not your expectations. Find someone on Twitter you admire who is a charity, organization or grass roots effort. Don’t follow individuals, it has away of creeping in and taking over your entire mind. It’s not effective you trying to learn and listening to people like yourself. It may not make sense, it happened to me in the beginning. I found myself suddenly in a conversation that is eating into my Advocacy hours.

    I have several people I look daily for my personal boost and other times I set a specific time to research who I follow. I follow less than a 50 and approx. 4,500 follow me. I had to look at my time spent on Twitter as working/learning time. Then I asses what I learned and how can I post to help or make people aware of.
    You might want to put your Twitter feed up if not used for personal communication.
    Rattle, Rattle, Rattle on.
