It's not unusual for creative people to also experience chronic pain. My theory is that they are related, because creatives experience life more intensely. I'm a chronic pain sufferer. I have fibromyalgia. I'm also ADHD and BiPolar. I'm wondering how many of you are also more sensitive to pain than others? If so, watch this video. It's an amazingly clear picture of why pain is pain. And then, go create something and let a little of that intensity out in a positive way.
