There Is Always Hope

I’m tackling a tough topic again today – intimacy when you live with Chronic Pain. If you remember the Cheap Trick song, it’s been on my mind lately:

I want you to want me.
I need you to need me.
I’d love you to love me.

My thanks to Wayne from Tofino photography for the use of his photographs.
