Living with chronic pain.
As someone who was crippled with “period pain” I totally related to this episode. I also suffered with back pain due to kyphosis as a kid. I still suffer with back and joint pain all the time. Owing to an autoimmune disease I have muscle wasting as well. I walk without aids. But it is very difficult to explain how disabled I am, because I don’t look disabled. The pain is invisible, but so limiting in activities of daily living.
