Featured Pain Art: “Living With Chronic Illness and Pain”

RoseThe 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.

Can you purchase these? They are beautiful and being a CP patient I can relate to all of them.

I completely understand having done this type of art myself dealing with Crohn’s disease. Glad there are artists out there showing this type of work. Thank you.

Absolutely wonderful. It says so much that only someone who has been through it would know about. Thank you for expressing it.
