Welcome and stay awhile, I like the company. Pain itself is no laughing matter, but the act of laughing can be physically and spiritually healing. It helps us breathe deeply, cleanses tense pain from our bodies, gives key muscles beneficial exercise, and lets us travel to an uplifting place of joy. Whether it's a joke, a cartoon, or the antics of a pet, find laughter and enjoy it often.
So, if you're here because you're the one in pain, I empathize with you. If you're a family member, friend or co-worker of the one in pain, I understand your concern but believe me, chronic pain sufferers, we don't want to be in pain. We'd give just about anything to be like we were before being afflicted with the conditions that are generating the pains. Pains that have changed us and make everyday a battle.
We battle the pain, the frustration, the aggravation, the loss of our productivity, the loss of our sexuality, the loss of our womanhood, the loss of our manhood and the loss of dreams we had for our lives. We fight the depressive thoughts and the sadness we see in our loved ones eyes.

Everyday is the start of new hope that we will be able to break free of the chronic pains binds and run down the street singing and dancing, picking up our little girls and boys, tossing the ball, jumping rope, doing whatever it is that we want unrestricted by the pain. We know our family and friends don't fully understand what we are experiencing; hell we barely understand it but we still have to live thru it.
So, for those who just stumbled here, you're welcome to. You need to know what we fight against so you can really support us, help us overcome this plight. We don't want pity. We want you to understand and know that you might not be in pain, Lord knows we hope you never have to suffer like this but your input is just as valuable to remind us chronic pain sufferers that our goal is to return to a life as free of pain as possible and as soon as humanly possible.
LIVING IN PAIN, A DAILY REMINDER OUR LIFE GOES ON SO CARPE' DIEM!
Temporary or permanent, pain is the sour taste of life. It reminds us that we are alive and at the same time snatches away some if not all of the quality of our lives. It affects not just you and me but our families, friends and co-workers. Pain also costs thousands upon thousands of dollars in lost work wages.
Pain costs millions of dollars in prescription medications. Pain results in more visits to the doctor or specialist pushing insurance rates higher than we can already afford to pay. Pain just plain and simple takes away the freedom to truly enjoy life.
What's This Got To Do With You???
In our word jumble this month you might just find a phrase or action or feeling that fits you or somebody you know. If you do, it's possible that you or them are suffering from aches and pains or may even be a chronic pain sufferer. Chronic pains don't discriminate and can strike anybody at anytime. We all tolerate pains differently so what may cripple one person may only hinder another person but that doesn't make the pain any less real or less devastating.
