Chronic pain isn’t usually a lighthearted topic. Understandably. If you live with pain day in and day out, it’s probably pretty hard to view it in a positive light or to trivialize it. Especially when most people around you don’t understand the discomfort - even agony - that you experience or how you might struggle to accomplish the simple tasks they take for granted. The whole journey can at times be lonely, frustrating, and disheartening.

Although it isn’t always easy, it can be good to occasionally take a step back and find some humor during our pain experiences. After all, laughter is the best medicine, right? Believe it or not, it’s possible to find a good chronic pain meme or two online that might make you chuckle or even help you feel not so alone in your chronic pain fight.

Below we’ve compiled some of our favorites. From more generic pain management memes and living with chronic pain memes to ones that cover specific conditions (like fibromyalgia memes and chronic back pain memes). We’ve got it all. And we’ve even thrown in a few memorable chronic pain quotes too. Anything to help us put our chronic pain into perspective and lighten the day (or week... or life)!
