A poem for those that are in that dark place right now, as I was when I wrote this. It’s important to know you are not alone.
For this first instalment in my new Pain Management Series, I talk about how a relentless pain flare and the reminder of what you can no longer do can quickly go from a physical problem to a dangerous decline in one’s mental health.
Written amidst a late-night fog of depression off the back of days of pain, in this poem, I talk about the ‘interior din’ many of us carry in the silence of the night.
