A severe injury in prehistoric times meant certain death. Our ancestors didn’t have the knowledge or technology to mend wounds, nor did they have a long life span to experience chronic pain. In short, humans did not evolve to manage pain and injuries well.
And in today’s world, an injury represents more than just physical pain. Men are still seen as breadwinners and define themselves by their profession. So when different types of injuries disrupt or end a career, we risk losing our financial security and our identity. If we suppress the mental impact of injuries and the disruption an injury has on our lives, some serious emotional issues can emerge. Some men describe it as hitting rock bottom and are at a loss with how to deal with it.
Talking to a professional and learning ways to cope with both your injury and your life can strengthen your mental wellbeing.
There’s no predictable way how men will react as they deal with physical pain and realize how the injury has impacted their future. Getting injured can cause stress, anxiety, depression, or grief, which in turn causes more pain and initiates a vicious cycle. The results can negatively impact your physical and mental wellbeing in a number of ways:
