It can be an isolating experience to be suffering from chronic pain and often sufferers don’t think that anyone understands them and it can be easier to retreat. It is also hard when you can’t function the way that you used to, which can limit social interactions and the desire to go out. Depression from pain is also a very real outcome so support from friends and family is essential.
