Today I’m making an exception to the books I usually review. When a friend publishes a book, I always jump at the chance to help promote it. But when a friend publishes a book so poignant as this one, I have to share that book with everyone.
I learned my first lesson in chronic pain at the age of thirteen. I discovered pain causes an emotional rollercoaster where the smallest thing on a random day can cause a person to reach their emotional limit, yet big things on other days may not. It all comes down to the word ‘chronic.’
This past year has been one of the biggest adventures of my life. It’s held ups and downs, twists and turns, good fortune and unexpected challenges. Most of all, it has all revolved around becoming a mom.
Today I’d like to take a moment out of my regularly scheduled blog postings to highlight a group of unsung superheroes. These people look like ordinary Clark Kents, so much so that most people wouldn’t know they were some of the strongest people we know. They are those who suffer from chronic pain/illness.
