Imagine dealing with a pain so intense every day and not being able to 'switch it off'. Pain killers don't help, the Doctors don't know what to do and all of this from what appeared to be a minor workplace accident as a teacher in a classroom.
Now add to that the loss of your favoured career, pressure on your family and a court battle that had you accused of faking all of this and calling the quality and integrity of your previous work into question.
This week we walk with Mark and Lois Quick and learn about CRPS (Complex Regional Pain Syndrome) a condition so serious many sufferers deal with heavy amounts of pain killers, electronic pain management solutions and for one person the idea of amputation was the solution to a daily life of pain.
Mark and Lois speak with grace and sincerity within a story that would have driven most of us to the edge of sanity and grace.
