Summary

Chronic pain, illness, and disability take so much away. Sometimes it seems as though they take everything we have ever loved and held dear.

Our physical abilities and our jobs. Our current passions and future dreams. Our finances and our friends. Our sense of community and our ability to engage the world in ways we could before.

Chronic pain takes away our sense of self and who we always thought ourselves to be. How in the world are we supposed to deal with this fact?

In this book, I hope to teach you how to mourn your losses - everything that pain, illness, and disability has taken away. I hope to teach you what to do when life is empty and filled with grief. I hope to point you to the god who gives us Himself when nothing else in life makes sense.

Well Done!

First chapter does a great job of explaining what it's like to live with chronic pain.

I am a spouse of chronic pain

My husband has been battling chronic pain for years with no answers. Nobody knows why he is in pain so we don't have answers to if or how to treat him. It has dramatically effected our family. This book helped me understand what he is going through so I can help him on his journey. It also helped me rekindle my faith looking at this from a different perspective.
