Hi there! I’m Chronicpainadon, and I go by Penny. I represent Chronic Pain. Everyone knows what pain is, but what you might not know is that there are hundreds of types of pain and I have some kind of pain all the time. ? Some days it’s not as bad as others, but my pain is chronic and that means it will never go away.

Chronic pain is different than regular pain because it is really resistant to most forms of medication so it can be very difficult to get relief. It’s also possible to have two or more coexisting chronic pain conditions at the same time including chronic fatigue syndrome, endometriosis, inflammatory bowel disease and many others. ?

Having Chronic Pain is hard, but I have found ways to live around the pain and that makes it a little easier to cope. I have a few friends that like to come and visit me when I’m in too much pain to go out, I can catch up on all the shows I want to watch on television when I’m home in bed, and I have the greatest collection of warm fuzzy blankets and super comfy pillows that help make me more comfortable. ?

Annie (The Anxiety Monster) and D (The Depression Monster) are my best friends. We have the most fun adventures together, I just love them to bits ???
