Chronic Pain

Chronic Pain

"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."

-Sarah Anne Shockley

Chronic pain is so much more than just feeling pain. Of course the pain is important, but the things that come as a result of the pain can make it so much worse:

  • Hopelessness that things will never get better

  • Feelings of isolation and loneliness because of people around them not being able to understand

  • Struggling with frustration, anger, and confusion when questioning why this happened to them

  • Grief over losing the ability to do things once loved

  • These are just some of the many obstacles that people who experience chronic pain live with on a day to day basis. While counseling might not be able to fix the physical pain itself, it can help to address the suffering that can come as a result.
