Living with debilitating pain leads to clinical depression. This does not mean that chronic back pain sufferers go about complaining of depression or even that they are consciously aware of being depressed. It simply means that, no matter how tough you are or how resilient your temperament, living with debilitating pain is going to get you down. Few realise the degree to which it has dragged them down until the nightmare is over. The practical and emotional consequences do not end there. All too often, their career and family life are in ruins. Many contemplate suicide. Unable to exercise, their health has deteriorated. It looks like an impossible mountain to climb and they cannot face getting their hopes up only to be let down again. It is normal for people who have suffered years of debilitating pain to feel like this, but it is wrong. That is why this route begins by taking you to proof of the resolution of cases such as yours.
