Dear Ms. Stevenson and Ms. Adib:

  2. Seriously. You’re a chronic pain survivor. I never really see stories about this in the mainstream media. I wasn’t really aware of it until I found your blog. It seems to be an issue that’s not really reported on. It’s a struggle for you and others in the blog world.
