My Story: Love the One You’re With  | By Cynthia Toussaint | National Pain Report |  25 September 2018

The art of mindfulness has become an essential tool in any chronic pain personal ‘toolkit’ of someone with constant #chronicpain.  Thinking back to my ‘Pain Management’ Programme sessions, over a decade ago, one of TEAM that ran it was a chronic pain nurse.  In fact the programme still runs and she’s still there, which is fantastic news for my fellow chronic pain readers that live locally to Sunderland, UK.  Towards the end of each session she would have us all get comfortable and we would have 20 minutes of relaxation and she explained why it was a good thing to try and incorporate it into our daily lives. 

It is something that I embedded into my personal chronic pain & illness management plan and now I can meditate easily and I reap the benefits for doing so.  It wasn’t so difficult for me because I had been practising some relaxation techniques to help with my mental issues regarding chronic anxiety and depression so it wasn’t difficult for me to develop a routine. 

Imputting meditation into your day can take a while because, what time of day suits you?

Do you have family?

When is it the quietest?

What if you never really have the house to yourself?

Do you work?

If yes, do you medidate first thing,

or before bed??

Where will you practise your meditation?

What type of relaxation technique will you try first?

Will you use guided therapy recordings with voice overs?

Where will you source your relaxation / meditation help / guides from?

All things to consider when planning when to slot it into your daily plans.

Reading Cynthia’s post describes the element regarding ‘self-love’, which is something I deem important as I personally believe it helps us to move forwards even when things seem impossible.  

Like Cynthia, I was hooked very quickly too and I have been promoting it as a tool for over a decade.  A lot of folks might see us as wierdo’s that we do this almost every day, if not every day, thanks to the stigmas attached to wanting a peaceful happy belief in your own life. 

I won’t lie to you… It took a while for the people around me to respect my ‘down-time’ and the reason why I did it. 

I want a peaceful, happy life… with a lot less pain in it!

Thankyou Cynthia for such a positive and inspiring post. 

Commentary by Carole ~ aka fibrofly73

Cynthia writes…

I practice mindfulness meditation most every day and a couple of months ago I pulled up a random video on YouTube. The guide’s subject was “self-love” which, because it seemed obvious, intrigued me. My thinking was, “How can someone not love themself? Why is this something that needs to be learned and practiced?”

Neuroscience Newsletter |  25 September 2018

Enjoy our latest Neuroscience News updates from the last 24 hours. You can read the full articles by clicking on the headlines or the links embedded in the summary.

Why it Doesn’t Go Dark When You Blink
Researchers report the medial prefrontal cortex calibrates current visual information with previously obtained information to help us perceive the world with more stability, helping to retain visual consistency as we blink.

Even Mild Physical Activity Immediately Improves Memory Function
A new study reports participating in light physical activity, such as yoga or tai chi, can help to increase connectivity between brain areas responsible for memory formation and storage.

Link Between Hunger and Mood Identified
Researchers report a sudden drop in glucose when we are hungry can negatively impact our mood.

Exercise May Delay Cognitive Decline in People with Rare Alzheimer’s
Researchers report, for those with a genetic mutation that causes Alzheimer’s disease, 2.5 hours of physical activity per week may delay cognitive decline and have beneficial effects on tau in the brain. They speculate the same may be true for those with more common forms of the neurodegenerative disease.

Baby Sleeping in Parents’ Bedroom Not Related to Later Life Behavioral Problems
Contrary to popular belief, researchers report infants who co-sleep in their parent’s bedroom do not experience an increased risk of developing behavioral problems later in childhood. The study reports there are beneficial outcomes of co-sleeping, such as improved child sleep quality and increased prosocial behavior.

Thousands of DNA Changes in Developing Brain Revealed by Machine Learning
Researchers have developed a new single cell analysis, combined with machine learning, to detect CNVs smaller than one million base pairs. The study reports genetic changes peak midway through brain development.

Only 3 weeks to go and we’ll be packing our little cases and boarding the train to London, will you be there?

I can’t believe how time has flown past and the conference is only a few weeks away.  It is really exciting to be involved and helping to collaboratively bring about changes within the world of medical healthcare. 

Helping to close the gap between pharma and patients and increase relations, encourage collaborations and stave off the ideas that patients can be manipulated.

Thanks to eyeforpharma’s regard towards Patients, Patients Included, and giving us a platform to share our patient voices, and our input during roundtables and panel discussions at their pharma conferences we can help pharma improve the products and services they make.  Help improve patient engagement programs / or, PSP’s Patient support programs between pharma and patients in ways that improve service design, product and service quality using collaborative methods and utilising all stakeholders to produce end results.

  • Will patient-centricity win-over pharma in London, how are companies becoming patientcentric, which companies are trying to be patientcentric?

  • Is patient- engagement working for pharma, what isn’t working? It can’t all be perfect!?

  • How is the concept of ‘Patient-engagement’ progressing is it proving to be useful, or does it need to be reassessed as a tool?

Innovation is also hot-topic as new ways of producing things have developed, including the use of AR, VR, AI, 3D printing and robotics to help improve surgical procedures, general medication delivery systems and even new bones and not that long ago even skin tisue, for a few examples.

Also, the different new ways that innovation is assisting clinical research and especially biopharma, health education videos for hospitals and HCP’s, and much more from the world of digital. Will we see some of that in London within the innovation, science and technology sector of the conference?

Of course aside from the World of Medical Affairs is the Impatient Conference and the part of the journey where we really do hope to make a difference.  It really has been designed by patients and the hope is that we can help bring patients and pharma closer together at this Pharma & Patient Co-creation event. 

  • How are pharma increasing patient relations, are they rebulding our trust yet?

  • How will we as patients convince pharma to make the necessary changes required to rebuild their pharma-patient relations?

  • What does pharma believe it should do? Do we as patients agree with pharma? If not, how do we compromise so that solutions can be formed and progression can continue.  Otherwise this time next year we will still be discussing it!

It’s time for pharma to stop ‘saying’ and start ‘doing’, be more proactive and begin to move forwards.

(Opinions are my own)
