Who Let the Pain Monster in?

A dark shadow-like evil vilian with razor sharp tentacles is someone I would never invite into my house. But  this creature on a lone dark night was able to invade my body without even asking my permission.

Reading this article by Dr. Scott Brady, MD, entitled “Do you have a Pain Prone Personality?” I realized  I may not have been in control of letting the original pain monster in, but  I did do things to feed the monster. I encourage you to check the article and see if you  might be unknowingly nourishing your pain.

I would love to hear  what you think.

About Mary Byrne Eigel

Before writing children’s books, Mary spent many years teaching in classrooms and creating art in her studio. She was born with bi-lateral hip dysplasia, a painful condition that causes normal activities, like walking, to be challenging. As a child, when Mary had to trek long distances, she often wished she had a wheelchair. For her, a wheelchair offered pain-free opportunities, not limitations. Mary grew up in Chicago, which is the lakefront inspiration for the town of Sail. She lives in Missouri with her husband and two dogs, Beaux and Trey.

  1. Very interesting article. Thank you. I don’t suffer from Chronic Pain, but I do have a lot of medical “issues”. The biggest being digestive problems. After having all the tests coming back clear, I have to assume that my anxiety disorder is a large cause.

    I am a bit of most of those personality types. Makes me think.

    Thanks for stopping and sharing. It sure gave me cause to step back and look at behaviors.
    Be well.
    Mary
