Hi, my name is Sarah
I am a writer, an artist, and a scientist.
As someone who suffers from chronic pain, I try to use my own experience to help others who are in similar situations. Society frequently dismisses pain as “all in your head.” Experiencing the frustrations brought on by pain’s isolating nature inspires my desire to raise awareness about chronic pain as an advocate not only for myself but also for other pain patients who may lack the resources to do it on their own.
I strive to help break down the stigma connected with chronic pain and mental illness by honestly discussing my own problems in managing life as a pain patient in everyday life and throughout my career as a scientist.
