I’m Keisha – I’m so glad you’re here! I’m passionate about bringing more awareness about chronic pain and providing helpful ways to live a happy life despite pain. I am also passionate about helping others to understand and prioritize self-care and personal development.
Are you a chronic pain sufferer finding it difficult to find content that gives an accurate portrayal of what life’s really like when you have chronic pain? Or perhaps you’d like to find alternative ways to cope with your pain aside from medication? Or maybe you’re ready to add some personal development and self-care into your life, but you’re just not sure where to start?
Well babe, The Chronic Diary is for you!
A LITTLE ABOUT THE BLOG
The Chronic Diary is a chronic pain blog here to help you understand chronic pain, ways to cope with pain and still lead a happy life. Alongside self-care and personal development tips that you can use every day to become the best version of yourself.
WHY I STARTED THE BLOG
I started the blog after years of trying to manage my chronic pain whilst also living a happy life. Honestly, I was so tired of pain controlling everything and was ready to get my life back.
I’ve suffered from chronic pelvic pain for just over 6 years and believe me it has been a hell of a journey. I have suspected endometriosis and nerve damage but I am still waiting for an official diagnosis, which has been a process within itself!
But there are some positives.
Having chronic pain for so long meant I found ways to manage my pain whilst still having a positive outlook on life (for the most part). After many years of living with pain, I’ve become more and more invested in incorporating self-care and personal development strategies into my life and I’ve seen firsthand how my life has changed for the better and I hope it will do the same for you!
Not only do I want to help others cope with their pain but also show that it is possible to lead a good life. No matter your circumstances, there are things you can do to give yourself the best chance at happiness and success.
I write openly and honestly about what really comes with living with chronic pain such as chasing a diagnosis, chronic pain management, how pain affects your mental health and symptoms of chronic pain. I also provide useful tips that will help you take care of your well-being and work on creating healthy habits, becoming more organised, coping with stress and other useful ways to succeed in life.
My blog posts are inspired by my pain diary and daily journal, which I’ve been writing to not only track my health but also as a tool to get me through the highs and lows of life with chronic pain.
