"Your pain will never be the same pain as that experienced by your health professional or anyone else for that matter"
It doesn't matter whether it's physical or psychological pain. Pain is subjective. But that doesn’t mean it doesn't exist or that you are putting it on. Pain is pain.
Yes it is different for everyone. But it is 100% real. It hurts. And it can be crippling. It can be life altering.
But sometimes, people just don't understand!
Which is why when you find someone who DOES understand...keep them close. They are the ones who can get you through the tough times.
