Living with a Serious Illness

LIVE Without Pain

Pain is part of the human condition; at some point, for short or long periods of time, we all experience pain and suffer its consequences. While pain can serve as a warning to protect us from further harm, if left untreated pain can become a disease in its own right.

When you are in pain, it can be difficult to focus on anything else; pain can affect every part of your life. You may not be able to eat or sleep well. You may not have the energy to do the things you enjoyed doing in the past. You may not want to talk with loved ones or maintain your relationships. Your pain may consume your daily life. Physical pain can take away peace of mind, comfort, enjoyment and most of all hope.
