We all experience physical pain in our lives, some chronic pain. I have been fortunate enough for the most part not have had to deal with the daily chronic type. But if we live long enough that is more likely. Today the focus is very much on pain relief and the resultant opioid addiction we see so much in the news.

In this book, which I listened to as audio Melanie Ternstrom discusses and picks apart at length her life experience with pain that stemmed from her shoulder. It is much discussion and probing into the many aspects of pain, yet we really don't get a sense of the degree of the pain or answers or cures for it. Much discussion and pondering is what is offered.

It was clearly apparent to me in concluding the book there are no concrete answers and many variations. It is also clear to me that we are still very much in the dark ages of understanding, managing, or curing pain. Despite our perceived super medical technology we still pretty much are clueless and impotent in conquering pain. Eons from now maybe a different scenario, but not for now. ( )

The story of a woman's journey to discover the cause of her own chronic pain, and a history of pain itself - how it has been explained and treated through history. Sympathetic insight for the healthy and the healers. Comfort and revelation for those suffering from chronic pain themselves. ( )

Certainly interesting and some useful info. A bit dated on medications and not too specific on side effects. What really bothered me was this chatty journo speak. I mean why do we readers need to know that doctor X has a finely chiselled chin or that patient Y has dark auburn curls. That just diminishes the sincerety for me.

This combines a first person account tracing the origins of the author's chronic pain with the history and philosophy of pain. It may open readers' eyes about the plight of people with chronic pain, making it all too real. Leaves one with empathy and a sense of the hopelessness some feel with lack of diagnosis or treatment options. ( )
