My Daily Struggle with Pain

This expression of what I am feeling daily was put together without collaboration by a wonderful, amazing and talented woman EJourneys.  It goes to prove that there are others out there that deal with pain on a daily basis as I do, maybe not the same type of pain but pain none the less.  If you would like to read up on her story or comment on her wonderful work, I have added her Bio and blog site below.
