Living with chronic pain is a non-choice of life, it's first undergoing, then vaguely accepting, not pain, but feeling pain... As a young person, I saw my life built on objectives, projects turned towards creativity. Unfortunately, for decades I've been telling myself that my body is not my best friend. In later life, I have a simple dream: to know again, one hour, one half-day WITHOUT PAIN, without a tense face, finally soothed... It is clear to me that making progress in the fight against pain will simply bring patients hope for the future.
