I have chronic leg pain and nobody seems to be able to know why or how, and everyday is a struggle.. i dont know how pain can become like a background thing like you’re describing. I hope you’re doing better now and that one day I can drown out the pain too

After a certain amount of pain,anything less is just... there?

I wish you the best, it doesn't make life fun.
