Palliativity 144: sick & flying high

Posted on March 15, 2012


My chronic-pain condition has a strange physiological reaction to illness. Simply put, my pain dials down when I'm sick.

None of my doctors have ever been able to explain this phenomenon. This flies in the face of the whole science of how the body's histemic reaction functions.

Having a cold, such as the one I am trying to fight off right now, puts me in a Catch22 position. I kinda wish I could sustain a mild cold for extended periods of time in order to cut the pain.

Then again, I'm not one to be unappreciative of small gifts such as this one.
