    Why does Mommy hurt? An interview with author Elizabeth Christy on chronic pain

    in Health

    Elizabeth M. Christy lives in Northern Virginia with her husband James, son Jimmy (5), and daughter Lucy (newborn). She is the best-selling author of the children’s book "Why Does Mommy Hurt? Helping Children Cope with having a Caregiver with Chronic Pain, Fibromyalgia, or Autoimmune Disease," and blogs on parentswithpain.com and potomacfallsmama.blogspot.ca.  Additionally, she works as a Systems Integrator for TASC. In addition to basic survival, Elizabeth enjoys writing, sewing (especially in straight lines!), and reading good memoirs.


    “Why Does Mommy Hurt?” is a great resource to talk to children about chronic pain and illness. On this episode, we'll discuss the guilt and shame many parents suffering from chronic pain feel about their parenting. The fact is that parents with chronic pain or illness can be just as awesome as “normal” parents when it comes to raising kids, and if you love your kids, that’s all that matters.  We may not be able to walk a mile to the playground, cook a 7-course organic meal from scratch, or volunteer on a field trip to the amusement park, but that’s not what really matters. If you love your kids, you will find your own way, and your kids will know it. Also, many parents in this situation feel very alone, especially when first diagnosed. There are millions of families out there in the same situation, you are not alone, and you have support out there waiting for you!

    Avoiding Pleasure; Inviting Pain.

    in Self Help

    We just can't stand it another minute, and then miraculously, we find another way to numb out or tell ourselves a story to keep us from toppling the apple cart in our lives. A lifetime can be spent living in fear of disrupting life's patterns even though we are miserable. We will sweep things under the rug, avoid making decisions that are life-altering, because we don't want to deal with what could 'possibly' be messy or even a mistake...or a new beginning. So, we keep towing the rope in our relationships, job or projects we undertake....in the hope for a miracle or something from somewhere outside of us to shift our reality.


    Except it never happens. At least not how we think it is supposed to, instead more pain arrives, perhaps even crisis occur, before we finally decide to REALLY live. Why wait? Learn how to get out of this soul crushing cycle.
