As a storyteller, writing is one of the few ways that help me cope with the daily struggle of chronic pain. It allows me to explore the part of the journey I am on currently and share it with fellow travelers along the way. Below are a selection of the fruits of this venture, or what I like to call “Sandcastles”.
