  • My doctor says it's very normal for people with chronic pain to also struggle with depression. All those pain chemicals in your body combined with feeling limited in activity can really mess with your head.

    So first of all, know you're normal for feeling down.

    Second, you talk with your doc about different pain management techniques. I employ medicine, physical therapy, and meditation to help out, but everybody has different preferences for what helps them best.
