  2. There are varying degrees of chronic pain, from mild to excruciating, and you no longer remember what it feels like to not be in pain.
  3. Yoga poses for pain relief that can be done throughout the day.
  4. When breathing becomes a chore, as depression weighs you down.
  5. When the answer is covered in layers of brain fog that you need to get through due to a traumatic brain injury.
  6. Aerobic exercise can help to strengthen the heart, especially for people with inflammatory arthritis, which increases the risk of cardiovascular disease.
  7. Writing forces me to question my thoughts and beliefs thoroughly, and other lessons learned from blogging.
  8. Being out in nature can help you to feel a little better physically and mentally.
  9. Chronic pain is often invisible as employees try to hide it out of fear. It is also unstable, as pain and fatigue levels fluctuate every day.
