The Unbroken Smile is a website where chronic pain conditions unite worldwide. They say “we didn’t choose this life, unfortunately, it chose us. Chronic Pain effects over 100 million people each year, regardless of our age, race, gender, or religion.”
Their site was designed to bring sufferers together regardless of what condition they may have been diagnosed with. They all hold this connection of pain and it’s unlikely it will go away until there are cures. They are there to inspire each other, tell stories, share arts, share advice, and lean on one another. Also, getting some much-needed tips and ideas along the way of how to cope and live each day in Chronic Pain.
This journey doesn’t have to be a sad story, it can be used to inspire others to keep going. “We know when you’re in pain the last thing you think about is smiling, but smiling is so good for you and it gives you a sense of control. Because one of the hardest parts of being in pain is we don’t have any control..not even of our own bodies.”
