If you are silent about your pain…

“If you are silent about your pain,
they’ll kill you and say you enjoyed it.”
Zora Neale Hurston

I recently came across this quote and, considering what’s going on with chronic pain these days, it struck me as unusually appropriate and true.

We cannot allow ourselves to made invisible and irrelevant – we must speak up as individuals because “our” large pain organizations have accomplished nothing for us.
