Chronic pain increases holiday depression: How pain impacts self-image and interpersonal relationships

(Scottsdale, AZ)…Those who are prone to depression have a particularly difficult time during the holidays. Whether depression stems from unrealistic expectations, overextending oneself financially or the inability to see loved ones, if physical pain is added to the equation, the results can be dire.

The physical impact of chronic pain is readily apparent. However, the mental impact can be no less devastating – not just for the person experiencing it, but for his or her family members and friends. According to the American Journal of Psychology, pain negatively impacts four major areas: mood, sleep, memory/concentration and relationships. Each one of these can have long-term negative impact on both self-image and interpersonal relationships.

“When it comes to one’s mood, we all know that pain has a major impact,” says Dr. Sham Vengurlekar, lead physician and founder of Premier Pain Institute. “It is difficult to smile and be pleasant when physical pain is the only stimuli the brain can process.”

In fact, the Australian Pain Management Association asserts that 21% of suicides in that country are directly related to physical health problems. So, those who manage their pain most effectively will, naturally, decrease their risk for depression.

Sleep is another area that is negatively impacted by pain. During the holidays, when parties are scheduled not only during the week, but weekdays as well, sleep suffers.

According to a recent story covered by Better Health Channel, those who are sleep deprived report increases in anger, frustration, irritability and sadness. Over time, this can lead to mood disorders, including depression and anxiety.

It is said that “multi-tasking” is a myth. In other words, we are only able to truly concentrate on one thing at a time. If more than one thing is occupying one’s mind, the amount of cognitive focus will decrease as distractions are added.

“It is hardly surprising that physical pain impacts our memory and recall,” says Dr. Vegularkar. “There is a great deal of discussion about how children who are hungry cannot concentrate. The same is true of adults who suffer from chronic pain. They cannot concentrate either.”

With regard to the holidays, perhaps the most heart-wrenching impact of physical pain is the damage done to interpersonal relationships. They say people lash out at those closest to them; and, those in pain lash out more often, and more aggressively, than others.”

“Although I always want to alleviate pain for my patients, their anguish is felt even more acutely during the holidays,” Dr. Vegularkar Says. “During this special time of year, we should be focused on spending quality time with family and friends.” For this reason most of all, Premier Pain Institute welcomes new patients to its practice – regardless of time of year. Those who want to manage pain effectively (and without the use of addictive narcotics) should contain Premier Pain Institute at www.azpainmd.com or 214-604-9058.

  • Happiness is all i see now I never thought that I will be cured from HERPES virus again. I have been suffering from a deadly disease (HERPES) for the past 3 years now, I had spent a lot of money going from one places to another, from churches to churches, hospitals have been my home every day residence. Constant checks up have been my hobby not until this faithful day, I was searching through the internet, I saw a testimony on how DR agaba helped someone in curing his HERPES disease, quickly I copied his email which is Dragabasolutionhome@gmail.com just to give him a test I spoke to him, he asked me to do some certain things which I did, he told me that he is going to provide the herbal cure to me, which he did, then he asked me to go for medical checkup after some days after using the herbal cure, behold I was free from the deadly disease, he only asked me to post the testimony through the whole world, faithfully am doing it now, please brothers and sisters, he is great, I owe him in return. if you are having a similar problem just email him on : Dragabasolutionhome@gmail.com or WhatApp: +2349074536486

  • Do you believe that Herpes has a permanent cure? My name is Vera White, I'm in Salt Lake City, Utah. I have been spending lots of money weekly on buying the popular Valtrex and sometimes Acyclovir, to suppress my Herpes outbreaks as prescribed to me in the hospital. Anyone who has herpes can attest this, with all the pains and embarrassing symptoms. Unfortunately, I have found out that those hospital recommended products are frequently not effective at taking care of the problem but rather make you spend all your money. DR.Vadi herbal remedy will get to the root of the cause and cure you completely rather than suppress outbreaks with medication. And you will be happier, healthier, and outbreak free. He also has herbal remedies that can cure HIV, HPV, hepatitis and so on. He is the greatest of all herbal healers. His email is doctorvadi@yahoo.com and his Whatsapp number:  +2348074133083. You can contact him and get a permanent cure to your genital and oral Herpes or HIV AIDS or Lungs cancer or Alzheimer's disease.
