Written as a poem in prose, this lyrical exploration shines a light on an aspect of life we prefer to ignore. What is pain? Is it just one thing, always undesirable, or does it have other qualities? Is it useful, at times even necessary? What is it like to live with chronic pain? Lene Andersen delves deep into the meaning and essence of pain to resonate with those who live with chronic pain and to help others better understand the realities of living with this condition.
