I am astounded by what human beings are capable of tolerating and adapting to when they have no other option. We are capable of living with circumstances that might completely debilitate another person simply because we have no other option.

I’m equally astounded by how tenuous that tolerance is and how easily the delicate balance is disturbed. Sometimes, it only takes one event, one additional stressor to push the needle into “meltdown zone.” Since I became disabled over a decade ago, I have been living with chronic pain.

Living with chronic pain is a constant balance of trying to live life as fully as possible while constantly assessing pain and tolerance levels.
