I'm new to the forum! I'm 22 and after 10 years of exploring every possible option for my (sometimes bearable, sometimes excruciating) lower back pain, I've recently had the discussion with my doctor about accepting the fact I have Chronic Pain that will likely last a lifetime.
I'm adjusting to the thought of living my life without this going away. I've been sent to a Psychologist, Physio and Pain Management. Pain Management have been wonderful and have provided me with a portable, Wired TENS Unit that they've told me to wear daily. Ideally morning to evening.
This may seem a bit shallow and insignificant, but I'm struggling to find a way to wear it without it being obvious. The cords from the rectangles to the machine are long, the machine is bulky. It seems silly, but I refuse to let this affect my life significantly. I want to be fashionable, I want to be confident... it's a bit daunting and I get self conscious walking around with Wires poking out from under my shirt and a bulky machine on my hip. I work in a fairly creative industry in a role where I need to look good, especially when meeting Clients.
If anyone has experience wearing a portable TENS daily, and has any tips for making it more comfortable to wear, hiding it well, generally becoming more confident wearing it I'd love to hear from you.
