My Life on A Shelf

This amazing artwork is called, “My Life on A Shelf.” It was painted by a woman who suffers from crippling headaches and migraines which I myself have suffered with for over 30 years.

The Artist name is Christa Barnell. I can honestly say this is probably one of the most powerful depictions of what chronic pain does to the life of a human being.

My Life on A Shelf

Look at all the little memories enclosed in jars on the shelf! And the smile mask on the floor. I feel like this relates so well to any chronic illness. It’s so powerful.
