I have come across a creative site that may help the friends/family of those of us who suffer with chronic pain understand a little better. It is an online art exhibit with works of art describing our pain. I have often visualized my pain in this way. If I had any artistic talent in my body at all my visual descriptions of my pain would probably look like most of these. I hope it will help you to understand me and the others that you love understand us a little more. It is the PAIN Exhibit.
