Chronic Pain: The Invisible Illness

Many people who suffer from chronic pain tell us that their friends and family, and sometimes their medical doctor, don't understand what they're going through. They think that they are exaggerating the pain or that it's all in their head. However, although you can't see it, the pain they feel is very real and often debilitating. 

People who suffer from chronic pain often find their entire lives disrupted and avoid activities that he or she believes will increase the pain. Sufferers often withdraw from family and friends because they don't understand what they're going through. They often here, "but you don't look sick" or they think that the sufferer is just being dramatic or looking for attention. But what their family and friends don't know is how hard it is for them to go throughout their day in debilitating pain. That their quest to find the cause of the pain is not because they want attention, it's because they are looking for a way to improve their quality of life.

People with chronic pain learn over time to smile and push on with their day. Over time they show less pain-related behavior which makes it difficult for anyone to know how much pain they are really in. Many also fall into depression from living with pain and are frustrated with invasive procedures that give little to no improvement and drugs that make them feel groggy.
