Hi all, I'm interested in your thoughts on transitioning from living in pain, fear and with many restrictions, to suddenly living a 'normal' life where you don't think about pain. I'm reminded of the film The Shawshank Redemption, when at the end a man is released from jail after being there for 50 years. He's made a life for himself inside the jail and when he is released he is directionless and confused. The world has changed a lot and he can't relate to it, having been away for so long. Eventually he commits suicide. I feel like, while life without pain (or at least without fear of pain, initially) is fantastic, it will bring with it some confusion, choices and just general shock. What challenges did you face and how did you overcome them? Especially for those of you who were in pain a very long time, or whose recovery was very fast, how did this sudden change affect you? Thanks.
