It is definitely not fun to cope with chronic pain. It’s not fun to hurt all the the time, and it’s also not fun to have devote a significant part of your day to try to prevent it, minimize it, or stop it from getting worse. Many of my clients with chronic pain say they feel like no one really understands.
That’s why blogs are so great! Here’s one devoted to the topic from someone who knows, and the post to which I’m pointing you is a well-justified rant on all of the above and more. You’ll definitely want to read it if you suffer from chronic pain, and share it if you know someone who does. Hope it helps!
