    I absolutely love this!!! I am going to send this to my boss, my husband and who ever else who wants to give me stink eye when I say I am having a bad pain day. I never thought about explaining to anyone that it is so different than acute pain. When I am done with the technical recuperative stages of whatever surgery I just had, everyone thinks oh you got fixed for that "acute" pain so you are good to go and when I am not good to go they think bad things.
