"I just want to point out how emotionally vulnerable it feels when you are experiencing chronic pain. Honestly, it wears you down and can give you a sense of hopelessness at times. Of all the medical care I have had in my life, I feel like the compassion I experience with the nurses in the Pain Management department has been the most important to me. I'm keenly aware (although I don't verbalize it to anyone) of the impact of the treatment on my overall wellbeing and function. If they can help me, I can get on with my life. That feels like a very vulnerable position to be in. I've been coming there for years now and I think they are amazing, always kind, always patient.”
