Chronic pain and depression for the most part goes hand in hand. For those of us suffering day in and day out without any conceiveable hope of getting better this could be a real and debilitating issue. With the pressures of family, work, and tasks that we have to complete day to day while we suffer, it could be taxing & tiresome to our body and mind. It is incredibly hard most of the time for family, friends and associates to relate to our pain and the moodiness, depression and feelings of worthlessness that sometimes come with our pain.
