"Healing severe or chronic pain, I believe, includes transforming our relationship to the pain, and, ultimately, it is about transforming our relationship to who we are and to life."Hopelessness that things will never get betterFeelings of isolation and loneliness because of people around them not being able to understandStruggling with frustration, anger, and confusion when questioning why this happened to themGrief over losing the ability to do things once loved
-Sarah Anne Shockley
