This website provides us with different cases of individuals who are living with chronic pain and ways we can help by donating to the cause. An example included is a 16 year old who suffers from Complex Regional Pain Syndrome or Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy. She lost all function of her hands and legs. She is in continual pain and can’t even tolerate a gentle touch. By reading through their stories you can get a first hand look at what an individual suffers through when they live with pain.
The Heart is a Lonely Hunter was Carson McCullers' first novel, written in 1940. Set in a small town in the American South, it is the story of a group of people who have little in common except that they are all hopelessly lonely. A young girl, a drunken socialist and a black doctor are drawn to a gentle, sympathetic deaf mute, whose presence changes their lives. This powerful exploration of alienation is both moving and perceptive.
