One in five people live with chronic pain and most feel misunderstood and unsupported. Dr Dawn Macintyre is one of those people. Here, Dawn shares her journey from living a full life to a life so diminished, full of pain, shame and exhaustion that she was desperate enough to want to take her own life. The author's personal story is interwoven with insight into the emotions and challenges faced, as well as practical advice for changes and support to help sufferers enjoy life again. Dawn provides her perspective as both a sufferer of chronic pain and a health practitioner. If you are a health professional, this book offers insight into how to best support your patients and clients living with chronic pain. If you are living with chronic pain, this story will bring you courage, joy and most importantly, the knowledge to find your meaningful life again.
