    I just got a referral to my hospital's pain clinic and the appointment is week after next.

    I found this article which has a lot of information and even some neat graphs. While it does mention therapy and physical therapy which may or may not apply to some of us per se, the article discusses how depression is often a result of chronic pain. I think it is worth the read even though it was written in 2000 and the certainly apt with the CDC wanting to limit pain medications.

    As for the support we need which is often neglected.
