CHRONIC PAIN ALLIANCE OF THE WEST
Pain is Everywhere and So are We!
Welcome to Chronic Pain Alliance of the West, the place you can go for support, friendship, and information.
We realize that it feels as if the world is against you for simply being the person who was born, given, or associated with the one condition this world and country has decided is a crime or automatically accompanies addiction—chronic pain
We know the life you live because we live it too— sheer agony upon rising in the morning or after resting after exertion—a body which has become the enemy.
Facing each day with a stiff upper lip, rigid back, or when the sun rises on an unbearable circumstance as is usual the case — AND ALL ELSE FAILS unstoppable tears . . . before tackling the coming hours of unseen obstacles known to waiting ….
And battling the never ending challenges of living a life of hell and then describing that life to those wishing to ease the pain but don’t know how.
When the basic Truth is?
The only way to know how to help is have that foot with the perfect fit for the glass slipper before midnight.
Can a person, family, friend, or foe see beneath the stoic features that cover the clenched jaw, pulsing muscles? Or detect the pulsing temples, tense neck muscles leading to the rigid back and stiff posture— hear beyond the the fake smile, grouchy disposition, or quick temper—- to learn the truth? To discover the reality of what is going on beneath the tortured surface of the person in Chronic Pain?
One who lives day in and day out with no break— complete respite— from the searing, stabbing, burning, aching, pulsing pain is not searching for “understanding,” “sympathy,” or “fixes.” as well as the agony from each day of living with their own body—the injustice from their own government.
