Chronic pain is defined as a constant pain that lasts longer than 6 months. Although chronic pain affects 100 million Americans there is an immense lack of awareness and support for those suffering. Chronic pain has the ability to stem from a specific injury or simply develop as a chronic illness without warning. Chronic pain can be moderate in some cases but depending on the situation it has the capability to be astonishingly severe and agonizing. Pain that is so persistent will easily cause distress and mentally destroy the individual suffering. Body pain is not the only symtom that chronic pain consists of, it also includes insomnia, weakened immune system, extreeme fatigue, depression, and anxiety. Invisible illnesses are often ignored or discounted due to the fact that the illness itself lacks visible signs. Although chronic pain is an invisible illness it is certainly not disability to be ignored.
