I think that I may take a stroll, And buy myself a toilet roll. At home it will be safely stowed, With the other pallet-load. — Pam Ayres Panic buying is common during disasters like the coronavirus pandemic. Before a winter storm, for example, somewhat irrationally, consumers tend to strip grocery store shelves bare of the so-called holy trinity of bread, milk, and eggs.

Recognizing that a bad mood or poor sleep are related to chronic pain could help increase compassion and limit self-blame. It’s been a hard few months for me. In addition to restrictions necessitated by the pandemic (I’m doing everything to keep myself and those around me safe), I’m experiencing an intensification of chronic pain, partly due to my ongoing chronic illness (ME/CFS) and partly due to a bad flare in osteoarthritis. This has led me to become acutely aware of several seldom-understood consequences of living with chronic pain. I’ve always known these consequences were there, but because they’re currently taking center stage in my life, I’m writing about them in an effort to raise awareness about this little-discussed subject. 1.
