Living with Chronic Pain
The INvisible Project: You Are Not Alone
What is the INvisible Project?
When you have chronic pain, it’s easy to feel completely alone and that no one around you understands. They can’t see the hardship .so they assume you’re fine or that you’re over exaggerating. The INvisible Project was created to make sure that no one who suffers from chronic pain ever feels alone.
The INvisible Project details the lives of those suffering from pain. It chronicles their worst moments and their best victories over their pain. Overall, it gives you a glimpse into the world that you are already very familiar with or you know nothing about and looking to learn.
What Does the INvisible Project Want to Achieve?
The goal of the INvisible Project is to educate and inform those who are not familiar with the trials and tribulations of those living with chronic pain. At the same time, the project aims to support those who are all too familiar with chronic pain. The project serves to act as a safe space where chronic pain survivors can feel welcome – no matter where they are on the pain scale. The INvisible Project is a program of the US Pain Foundation.
