At some point in our lives we all have dealt with pain: from bones, joints, muscles or skin injures to damage to nerves or spinal cord; we have names for it: neuropathic, visceral, somatic; we have the diagnostic tools to tell us exactly the cause of our pain, but very rarely is taken into consideration the emotional aspect of pain
The emotional affects of pain can be similarly devastating as the physical injury itself and include depression, anger and anxiety
, which arise from having limitations set to one's life and not knowing when is going to stop, from having a myriad of chemicals running through our bodies affecting literally every aspect of our lives; it is like a sentence without expiration date. In addition to this, the perception of pain is circumstantial and can be influenced by the person's state of mind, surroundings, relationships, weather, diet changes, among others.
