There are many different ways that you might be able to cope with the pain associated with a burn injury. This includes medication management, behavioral therapy, and learning coping techniques. Even with the best methods, breakthrough pain is still possible. This can make you dread even the most normal activities that other people do without thinking.
One issue that people with a burn injury face is the damage to the skin and nerves. Burned skin might be tight, which makes movements painful. This can take away the enjoyment that you feel doing activities that you like to do.
