Life with Nerve Pain: True Story of the Princess & the Pea

25 Aug

“Advocating for Another” Carnival 2012 – Day 5

by Heather Grace IPJ Staff Writer/Storyteller

Have you heard the story of The Princess and the Pea? The princess suffered a lot more than discomfort and lack of sleep from a tiny green pea being under her mattress. There’s a lot more to the tale. You haven’t heard the whole story… Until now.

In this fairytale, learn how facing the reality of her nerve pain changes a very sick little girl into the princess she was meant to be.

Go ahead… Curl up and listen, just like you did when it was “story time” as a child:

True Story of Princess and the Pea (MP3)

Feel free to share this story with children who have chronic pain, intractable pain and especially nerve pain. And, if you live with pain, this fairytale may you help explain to children what people with chronic pain go through. I look forward to your comments. Enjoy!
