Welcome to Chronic Pain Conundrums
A place where you, and I, can together face those monsters that creep in, hiding in chronic pain's shadow.
When the pain first started, you wanted it to go away. But it didn't. When the doctors poked and prodded you, ran test after test, and plied you with a suitcase's worth of prescriptions, you wanted to hide and not come out. But you didn't. When the doctors gave up and said that there was no cure, nothing to be done, you wanted nothing more than to return to your old life. But you couldn't.
Chronic pain isn't simple. It isn't pretty. And with it comes a host of other problems no one ever warned you about, ranging from social isolation to post-traumatic stress disorder to battling guilt, depression, and anxiety. Chronic Pain Conundrums is a place where you can find help. I cannot take the pain away from you, but I can help you manage the pain and battle the other monsters that come with it.
