TED talk on chonic pain.

Too bad it's so short! Very interesting. Thank you!

Yeah. I think the TED talks are designed to give people little bursts of info on topics they might not normally bother to look in to. They're good for sparking interest, rather than developing a real understanding of anything.


Fine, thank you
Thanks for posting this, Esther. I forwarded the link to a friend who has a very severe chronic pain condition and she found it very interesting.
