They say “write what you know”.

Well, I know pain. Pain and I have been close – close for over 30 years. Sometimes our relationship goes dormant for a while, never enough for me to forget about it. Pain always lurks at the edges and in the shadows. At other times the relationship flares up. For the past few years, we’ve been going steady. So, yeah, I it’s something I know.

This is my blog about pain. My pain, your pain, pain in general, because we don’t talk about pain. It’s a secret, and those who admit to it are often disbelieved, discredited, discarded or morally judged. That’s wrong. Pain is not bad. It’s not a weakness or a sin or slacking off or all in my head.

Pain is real. I have to live with it. You have to live with it. We all have to find a better way of living with it.
