Waking up on the wrong side of the bed. A Pain Story.

By Noigroup HQ Pain literacy education 21 Oct 2021

On an Explain Pain Course you will practice creating your own Pain Stories to illustrate Target Concepts; key ideas helpful for everyone to understand pain.⁠ Here’s one that we prepared earlier from a previous course!

Waking up on the wrong side of the bed

Sometimes we find ourselves snapping at our loved ones for little or no (known) reason. They might ask “what’s wrong?” and all we can muster is a curt, “nothing!”

Perhaps you woke up on the wrong side of the bed – proverbially speaking.

We find that pain can behave in similar ways. For little or no (known) reason pain and the other symptoms that are a part of your pain experience can behave more irritably. This makes some people grumpy and tetchy.

Perhaps you got out of bed on the wrong side? Or perhaps, like our mood, pain can fluctuate and this is a normal part (or expression) of an ongoing experience.

Linked Target Concepts

1. Pain relies on context

2. Pain depends on the balance of danger and safety

3. Pain is one of many protective outputs
