What is a "better life" when living with pain?


This differs so much from person to person. It might mean feeling comfortable going out in public, spending time with family and friends. Perhaps it's saying no to an activity or opening without feeling guilty. For many, it's being better able to get through the day.


"Society has us believe that when chronic pain, chronic illness or mental health challenges hit us that we 'lose'. True, there are changes in our lives due to things we no longer can do. However, I believe what actually occurs, so many times, is that the true person deep inside of us becomes revealed. We are offered the opportunity to discover hidden talents, passions, and abilities."
~ Jory Pradjinski, January 2019
