Chronic pain associated with increased risk of poor memory, dementia
A new study shows again what we pain sufferers have kinda felt all along: chronic pain consumes our energies, our patience, our strength and leaves us exhausted. Over time, our intellectual and emotional reserves become depleted. We are left defenseless against the challenges of our environment, our daily life. It can literally make us lose our minds.
It is another compelling argument to be as aggressive as possible in seeking the sources of our suffering and find solutions, even partial and temporary (but still, repeatable as needed).
In other words, every day without as much pain is a better day, and in the long run it will not tax our bodies and souls as badly.
