Chronic pain and illness change everything.

Sometimes you begin to lose yourself in the process

"Who am I without a career? Without my strength? Without all the things I used to be able to do?"
"How do I work through all the loss and grief?"
"How do I maintain my relationships when I always feel terrible?"
"Is there any purpose or meaning to what I am going through?"
"How am I supposed to keep going when the pain just doesn’t stop?"
Chronic pain and illness change everything.
