How to Understand Someone With Chronic Pain

This is the most compassionate and understanding (and understandable) article about understanding people with pain I’ve read. While I was reading it, I could feel that warm fuzzy feeling inside, the one so rare when you always have pain.

With chronic pain, however, pain signals continue abnormally. This can be both distressing and exhausting for chronic pain sufferers. In some cases of chronic pain, there was an injury, illness or infection that first caused the pain. In other people, though, chronic pain appears and continues without a history of these events.

To understand chronic pain sufferers, you should learn about chronic pain, be supportive and know what to say and what not to.
