What I’d give to be pain free. I’d give my pain, that is for sure.
I have suffered chronic pain since the early 1990’s, not all that long after I joined the ‘real world’. being a kid at school was so easy, no responsibilities beyond making sure you had your homework ready to hand in on time, that your school uniform was clean and in a good state of repair, and that you had completed any chores to avoid the wrath of your parents. The read world changed all of this. There was further education, bills, adult relationships, alcohol, illicit substances, and of course that one thing most adolescent boys hang out for, their first car.
