My own chronic pain story
I’m am briefly disturbing the winter hibernation of this blog to promote a new article on my personal blog. It’s an extremely personal piece, but it is also directly relevant to my work here on PainScience.com:
A decade ago I devoted myself to helping people with chronic pain, and now it’s time to face my ironic new reality: I have serious unexplained chronic pain myself. It may never stop, and I need to learn to live with it rather than trying to figure out how to fix it.
I have always been “prone” to aches and pains, and that’s why I became a massage therapist and then moved on to publishing PainScience.com. But that tendency was a pain puppy humping my leg compared to the Cerberus of suffering that’s mauling me now. I’ve graduated to the pain big leagues.
P.S. I am still planning to fully revive this blog, and fairly soon. I’ll probably re-launch it sometime in February.
