Many people in pain have had to relinquish a lot of the things they did before their pain experience.
"I used to be able to play football with my kids" or
"I used to be a superwoman" or
"i was able to do all my housework in one go"
Pain changes things. Does that mean i am not the same person as i was?

"WHO AM I?"
