Having chronic pain takes a real toll on the body, both physically and emotionally.
Maybe sometimes people tell you that you seem a lot happier (or better), without realizing how hard you're trying hide the pain.
Maybe there are days where your pain is easier to cope with and days where it's especially bad.
Or maybe there have been times when people (and even doctors) didn't believe you when you said your body hurt.
We want to hear what it's like living with chronic pain. So tell us via the DropBox below, what do you wish other people knew about it?
No matter how big or small it is, we want to hear everything you have to say — from what the pain is like to how it affects you emotionally to the hardships you face every day because of it. In your comments, try to be as detailed as possible and don't hold back.
