A homeless person who sleeps outside is exposed to many elements of weather and must be prepared. They can be sheltered from severe weather, but little can be done to prevent the physical pain that some people feel. I am one of those people. When I lived outside all the time my pain was worse. I was on prescription pain relievers. One was a narcotic, which I took for a year and a half before my doctor took me off due too itching (opiate allergy) and my body developed a physical dependence. Now I am lying on my bed typing this on my phone an trying to distract myself from the pain in my legs and in several muscles because my pain meds aren’t working. I`ve lived my life with pain. The pain is still bad but would be worse if I didn’t have housing. I am tired of having pain issue all my life! But there are things it teaches–like tolerance, endurance, and even motivation. There are times I must force myself to move despite the pain. Work and do what is important now; I can rest ! later.
