My Life As A Chronic Pain Sufferer

by Jodi Cornelius

Imagine, waking up one morning and discovering that your life has been slowly changing – and not for the better. Imagine what started out as an innocuous minor pain turned into a pain that keeps you from performing your everyday life without taking pain meds and muscle relaxers, anti-depressants and anti-anxiety medications.
