I recently read "The Truth about Chronic Pain" by Arthur Rosenfeld. It was extremely informative and inspiring. It told of true cases of people dealing with different types of chronic pain, what they have gone through, and ultimately how they are coping with it on a day to day basis (like all of are trying to do!)
btw- I am new to this forum. I have read it for many months now and am astounded by how caring, supportive, and understanding people are on here! Glad to finally join.
Thank you for recommending the book. My library has it and I put a hold on the book and hopefully get it within the week.
