The day-to-day feeling of trying to stay above a pile of meds while what feels like the weight of the world is bringing you down.
Unable to speak and feeling like your legs are noodles and feet are cinder blocks.
The ice pick in the back is obvious representation of the constant feeling of sharp piercing back pain.
