The Atlantic Article: “Parenting Through Chronic Physical Pain”

Once a week, I like to post an article on the current research or innovations in the treatment of chronic pain conditions.  Sometimes, an article such as this comes along that is not only beautifully written but allows you to see a piece of yourself in its words regardless of the subject.  Here is an excerpt from the article written by Rachel Rabkin Peachman:

“Science may say the odds are against parents with chronic pain. And I know there are days I’m sidelined and short-tempered. But I’m determined to raise children who feel supported, secure, and loved. I don’t know what my future holds—surgery, therapies, or a lifetime of pain. But I have to believe that despite a deteriorating body, it’s possible to be a successful mother…I’m still the one my girls reach for—and I refuse to let the pain take that away from me.”
