Listening to the sermon this Easter morning, the words "All Aboard!" were used, in the context of being all aboard in the spirit of the Risen Lord. It got me to thinking about being all aboard in a different context...the context of daily living. I got to thinking that people who are depressed fall away from this idea as they become internally focused, shutting off everything on the outside while dwelling on their inner pain. People who suffer from chronic pain can fall into this trap as well; the struggle of living with daily aches and pains. Sometimes it becomes so all-consuming that that the sufferer falls out of touch with the life outside the scope of their illness. Family events, travel, adventures--all fall by the wayside because the pain gets in the way. Meanwhile, life is going by...and those who are not "all aboard" miss out on much that life has to offer. It is my hope that some of the pain management tips I offer you will make it possible
