People think my pain is invisible! I look at Tara Moss and I finally understand why people just don’t comprehend chronic pain.
Doesn’t Tara look amazing?! How can you need an aid/aids and still be so well dressed – in fact, have heels on!?
When I went to Italy years ago, I took a walking stick with me. I remember people stopping to watch as I walked by looking me up and down searching for some clue to explain the walking stick. They were frowning and concerned and just lost as to why I needed the stick – there were no signs of injury.
Nerve pain is magic! It fools onlookers and it fools me! Every day I’m fooled and every day it plays its invisible tricks.
But this isn’t about me. It’s about the divine, towering strength of a woman that is Tara Moss and the work she is doing to advocate for people with chronic pain – specifically chronic regional pain syndrome in Tara’s case. And that’s not all! Tara is an acclaimed author and an advocate for human rights and the rights of women, children and people with disabilities, has been a UNICEF Australia Goodwill Ambassador since 2007 and since 2013 has been UNICEF Australia’s National Ambassador for Child Survival… she’s just amazing.
