The picture represents the isolation and imprisonment those of us with chronic pain and chronic illnesses feel. We see and hear what the outside world is offering but we are tied to our homes and our diseases. We are often unable to take part in any activities outside our sickroom. This leaves us feeling sad, depressed, hopeless, and helpless.
