Just joined today, feeling a bid down due to pain, never ending. MSK/joints problems among others, back on crutches right now, feeling hopeless...family and friends don't understand...
How do others cope with chronic pain day in day out.

    Welcome to the community @Katnip63
    Chronic pain can really get a person down and it can be really tough. Have you ever seen a specialised pain clinic?
