The Unbroken Smile is a site for all Chronic Pain and Chronic Illnesses. We didn’t choose this life, unfortunately it chose us. Chronic Pain effects over 100 million people each year, regardless of our age, race, gender, or religion.
Our site was designed to bring us together regardless of what condition we may have been diagnosed with. We all hold this connection of pain and it’s unlikely it will go away until there are cures. We are here to inspire each other, tell our stories, share our arts, share our advice, and lean on one another. Also, getting some much-needed tips and ideas along the way of how to cope and live each day in Chronic Pain.
Our journey doesn’t have to be a sad story, we can use it to inspire others to keep going. We know when you’re in pain the last thing you think about is smiling, but smiling is so good for you and it gives you a sense of control. Because one of the hardest parts of being in pain is we don’t have any control..not even of our own bodies.
Take a minute and look around you, find one thing that makes you smile…did you find it? See, it takes a lot to break a smile and since we didn’t get a choice in our illnesses we do get a choice to have an Unbroken Smile, to look past the pain that we so heavily endure each day.
We come together asking for better treatment, understanding, and awareness of our conditions. We are not here to compete with each other of who has it worse, but we come here knowing we have found someone else that knows what we are going through.
We have been through a lot, but we have chosen to have an Unbroken Smile.
