About living your daily life with chronic pain
One in five people suffer from chronic pain, for example in the form of rheumatism, migraines or ME, whereby the central nervous system keeps transmitting pain signals. However, pain is still a taboo, meaning that patients often hide it. Marleen Schefferlie focuses on experience, the history of pain, the therapies and life philosophy that keep patients going.
These are personal stories full of wisdom and strength. Pain is Personal by Marleen Schefferlie is both her own personal ‘pain CV’ as well as the story of ten peers, who suffer from fibromyalgia and other types of chronic pain.
Praise for Pain is Personal:
‘A very personal insight into the life and experiences of people suffering from pain. This book breaks the taboo of talking about pain.’ – Rinie Geenen, professor of psychology at Utrecht University
