THE ART OF PAIN Chapter
#proud of myself! #mystory & #artwork is published in a medical textbook thru a Dr. @ FDA about my #chronicpain #surgery #malpractice #advocating thru healthcare #medicine, #surviving #tbi, #spinalinjury; living #POSITIVELY thru the peaks and valleys as a patient, #opiates and the MAYHEM of stigmas, withdrawal as well as needing research with #KRATOM #cbd
I am really excited and look forward to possibilities of #publicspeaking and advocating for better living even with challenges. HOPING my #artofpain allows those that do not understand what we go thru, to feel for a moment what we do and raise awareness.

Returning from finding a deeper sense of myself, #innerstanding the grit of my #DNA ,what we each uniquely own. We must dive deep, take a #pause in #nature to see our #mistakes, #understand our #individual #capabilities, and #GROW from the #knowledge acquired.
I just returned from a #healing #journey, ongoing. Imo Nature is key to help #tbi, #traumaticbraininjury #brain #chronicpain, #overstimulation and #anxiety. Get in the ground and plant your feet. What sprouts may surprise you!
Time to start more #artwork, translating my world onto paper and hopefully expanding yours!

When we see a possible end to suffering, and have an #accident after #surgery and the return of #pain is adamant.
We create another #fairy #sigilmagick to tell the #chronicpain to go f*ck itself.
The Faery Star: Magick and meaning. ... Also known as a Fairy Star or #Elven #Star, It can be displayed as a protective shield, a focal point for meditation, or a symbol of the Shining Realms

#ADVOCATION TIME
Not my usual post but as a #disabled person and a #disabilityadvocate I will not be quiet on this.been just smidge over month after surgery #acdf c34567 and I finally got the ok to get out & my love of collecting rocks and sea glass plus a sunny day got #neckbrace me, family to the beach.We got there from on the bluff could see 1 #handicap space left and one car ahead of us. We get down the hill,to the space and granted thought well they too may need that slot so we will figure it out and sure enough they took it. Well, we notice no #disabledparking tags on plates,Window, or hanging on rear. So, figured they must be hanging one so I got dropped off, out of car AS THEY WATCHED! right there at entry to beach and my family had to go find parking.
NOW, as I'm standing which is a miracle in it's own, with neck gear waiting, I realize this is a family unloading thier beach gear!!the wife holding a baby, 2 kids that can walk were waiting as dad unloaded, 3 feet from me. #opportunity for a #lesson. The dad was looking at me as I had my phone out debating to take a picture, I did not. But as he pulled away the dad could tell exactly what was about to go down . I said hello to the mother, and directly I'm #handicapped. You understand we were the car behind you, This they knew as i was unloaded behind them as they watched. I said, What you are doing is a disgrace, you have a BEAUTIFUL healthy body and family, and to utilize this zone when you are not legally allowed is wrong on so many levels.The #DISABILITYPARKING IS NOT AN #UNLOADING ZONE AT THE #BEACH or ANYWHERE☆ I am in a neckbrace my 40th surgery & cannot move my left arm well now due to surgery #c5nervepalsy need my family to hold my hand to go most anywhere atm. Because of your poor decision I'm here leaning on this fence With you while you watched your hubby unload and then now await like me. I was crying. Angry, but needed to do THIS.i said I'm not trying to attack you but #teach you and gave her a #hug with my one arm. The shock on her face, apologies, saying she will tell her hubby.
♡Advocating me still got to the beach w/ fam♡

Most #chonicpain people can visually hide their suffering, to try to be that "normal" , but most days it's just survival. HERE I am blindfolded, in #pain. Do you see the pain? sadly the populous has lost its #intuituve #empathetic #abilities to recognize a person hurting due to #desensitization caused by our #environmental and #technological stimuli. One can blindfold themselves but really, in a sense, everyone already is. But I still see my pain.°•B.D.

☆ A #translation ( #artwork ) about my #surgery #nervepalsy #thoracicoutletsyndrome #CHRONICPAIN, please ZOOM in, see the hand #stitched #boullionstitch #embroidery on top of the #handmade #linocut #screenprinted #textiledesigns, the #fabric is hand #dyed too, entire #fiberart jam packed. The embroidery gives extra layer, depth, texture, & invites one to touch the life experience. In a way each knot represents a cell, stirring movement. The stitch process also involves miving my shoulders and that is #arttherapy pt at its finest !!!!lol ☆ needed this to be as elaborate, dense to mimic what I'm experiencing. This #contemporaryart certainly speaks all truths of what I am dealing with. The #spiral represents the journey and change of life as it unfolds; taking a labyrinth-like passage that leads to source strength to recycle my #cells & heal, activating #dna. Rebirthing a updated vessel, grounded mind body soul. The droplets can be different representations to each viewer. Is it blood ? water ? tears ? emotions :all washing away? Healing has no time it just happens accordingly. ~°•B.D. #spoonie #pain #tos #medicine #healthcare #embroideryart #fiber #printmaking #screenprinting

"When you do not listen..."
Painted to translate my feelings towards your efforts ( Dr.D) to erase me •
#acrylic #acrylicpainting
48x60 gallery wrapped •°☆ #LISTENING is one of the most essential #medical tools a #doctor has, yet sadly many ignore, assume and judge without considering the human being speaking thru the absolute need for help.to all of you out there that have spent money in hopes of being heard and HELPED, yet almost killed instead , I UNDERSTAND AND YOU ARE NOT ALONE. TO those that sadly have lost lives due to pure neglect we hold your words, your breath, and your effort within our hearts, and we understand the meaning. ☆With this current time in bed healing from acdf nerve palsy surgery, reflecting and advocating my reality of being a #CHRONICPAIN
Patient, I have found reposting some of my past translations/#artworks necessary helping me and maybe to assist others #spoonielife , and bring #chronicpainawareness as well as ignite my passion to publicly speak to make an impact.
My new updated publishing via #Springer comes out in Sept, but on my website the story on Dr.D can be found chap 40 :
www.belladolores.wixsite.com/belladolores
THANK you for this moment, and time taken to read.
