Chronic Pain Clearinghouse
Chronic pain persists long after the injury or illness that initially caused it has healed, or should have healed. Sometimes pain exists when there is no discernable cause, making it invisible to everyone except the person that is tortured by it. It steals a life, leaving its host unable to sleep, interfering with relationships, causing depression and sometimes contemplating suicide.
If you are one of the millions that suffer from chronic pain you understand how devastating it can be, and how even the sturdiest of people begin to feel alone in the world with no place to turn.
You do not have to let chronic pain control you. You can live a full, happy life even if you live with pain. This book will show you how.
Surviving chronic pain is different from surviving any other chronic illness. Chronic illness is a difficult life challenge. However, life with chronic pain has a constant reminder that you are no longer like other people. Every step you take has a price. You cannot just “live your life”; there is always a reminder. From the minute you open your eyes in the morning, until you shut your eyes at night, there is no escape. When you do find medicines that help the pain, you must learn to accept the side effects, such as dry mouth, fatigue and the excruciating weakness in your limbs. Chronic pain has invaded your life, and is here to stay. Life as you knew it is gone.
If you are reading this book, you are looking for solutions for living with pain. You want a happier and more fulfilling life. You may want to have the life that you had before the pain took over, or you may even want a better life. You deserve a life full of vitality, and you can have it.
