Do not be fooled by appearances

Did you know that 96% of chronic illnesses are invisible?

I may look well and healthy, but beneath the surface is a world of pain and exhaustion. When the battle goes on beneath the skin or within the mind, the war cannot be seen through human eyes. No one can see that my body is on a self-destruct mission. If only I could show you what goes on beneath the surface, if the only pain was visible,  you would be horrified by what you would see. I am in constant pain, the sort of pain that meds cannot numb, it’s only the level of the pain that varies from day to day.

“Chronic pain is one of the most underestimated health care problems in the world today. We believe chronic pain is a disease in its own right.” Professor Harald Breivik, World Health Organization
