Thank you, Chuck! I'm grateful for the insights pain brings me and the opportunity it has given me to grow and heal relationships. It's a huge part of my memoir (work in progress).
We do tend to drive ourselves too hard in America, but there's a flip side of just being considered lazy.
I want to write sometime about this and about how we could potentially shift our work ethic so that people with mental health/pain conditions can participate in the work part of our society in a healthy and productive way.
Any thoughts on that? I'm curious what you think.
Thank you for reading!
