This is a quote from a dear friend of mine who is profoundly Deaf and he is a Professor of ASL at a University in Utah….with that being said….

I hope today is a low pain day for you and/or your loved one(s) living with chronic pain.
I am Hard of hearing now since the TBI & I had been an Interpreter for the Deaf; prior to the car accident that caused all of this pain & these chronic illnesses.
I thought that you might enjoy seeing this this song performed in ASL, or “American Sign Language” & sung by Shawn Mendes. It’s called “It Isn’t In My Blood.” I feel like this song is exactly how I live my life, especially now. Then I thought about it more and realized that this is how many of us live our lives. We are People living with tremendous amounts of Chronic Pain day after day. This song is about not giving up. it’s also about how we reach out and ask for help but sometimes it feels like nobody’s listening. This is especially true right now, during these difficult times for chronic pain patients who need opioids to help give them some semblance of a life.
This song talks about how it just isn’t in me to give up or just lie down and do nothing. We all need to reach out and ask for help sometimes. We are fighters and we are survivors.
I just thought that this was an appropriate song for Chronic Pain survivors. I really like the lyrics to this song & I hope you enjoy it.
