Take a left, take a right, life is full of choices, every moment of every day.
Chronic pain is not a choice anyone would make but, as life is known to do now and again, some choices are made for us, without any consent required or heeded .
Theses are our fate.
Failure and success seem to have been allotted to men by their stars. But they retain the power of wriggling, of fighting with their star or against it, and in the whole universe the only really interesting movement is the wriggle.” ~ E.M.Forester
