In my deepest hours of pain we acquired a nut-case cat, who is able to keep me entertained. When the heaviest prescription opiates could not cut the pain, she would make up some new game that could get me laughing. This cut a spiral of pain and has allowed me to draw off all pain killers.

This and other works of art can be found at the Pain Exhibit, an online educational, visual arts exhibit from artists with chronic pain who use art to express some facet of the pain experience.
The mission is to educate healthcare providers and the public about chronic pain through art, and to give voice to the many who suffer in silence.
