Labels matter. We quickly form judgments based on them. If we hear someone called lazy, the label "lazy person" attaches in our mind even though we may not have even met the person. The same is true for labels given to many medical conditions. If the label for an illness uses language such as "fatigue," we abstract from our experience and think we know what it's like to suffer from it.

Some medical disorders have been named after the researcher who discovered or described them in the medical literature (Alzheimer's). Others were named after a famous patient (Lou Gerig's disease). The result: instant legitimacy.

WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT ME?

Written by

WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT ME? 1. My pain - My pain is not your pain. It is not caused by inflammation. Taking your arthritis medication will not help me. I can not work my pain out or shake it off. It is not even a pain that stays put. Today it is in my shoulder, but tomorrow it may be in my foot or gone. My pain is believed to be caused by improper signals sent to the brain, possibly due to sleep disorders. It is not well understood, but it is real.

According to the BWC, more than 60 percent of last year's lost-time injury claims were the result of slips, trips, falls or overexertion, all preventable causes. "Preventing the most common injuries can be as simple as maintaining good housekeeping practices, using slip-resistant shoes, eliminating lifting tasks and training employees on proper lifting techniques," BWC administrator/CEO Steve Buehrer said in a news release. "Attentive employers can make a few minor changes at minimal cost that can significantly increase safety in the workplace and provide the added benefits of healthy, productive workers and lower workers' compensation premiums."
