I remember watching my mother trying to figure out the clock on our VCR player. I used to jokingly say “you’ve got to be smarter than the VCR!” I remember doing such things for the adults around me, wondering how they managed to get to their age. Guess what: I’m officially stupid. I thought that…

Pain

Pain sucks. And chronic pain sucks chronically. If I were asked to give a speech about pain to a room full of strangers, after my introduction I would say these two sentences and then sit back down.
