Over 100 million Americans are living in chronic pain, and I’m one of them
Cassandra Smolcic

Thank you for writing about your pain. After 9 years of denial I wrote about mine on a business blog of mine. It was so freeing.

Then people started to come to me in private, asking me if they should disclose. I was hoping for this, that maybe I could help others feel less lonely with my story. But it also helped me feel more useful than I had in a long time. I wish thus for you.

It sucks to have you as a member of this club. But you are welcomed with gentle hugs by spoonies everywhere.

A single golf clap? Or a long standing ovation?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
