“100 million American adults live in chronic pain.” Institute of Medicine, 2011 “Whew!” A deep breath, so glad it’s over! The uncomfortable truth is that Americans suffer from chronic pain in numbers greater than most conditions combined. The chances are that sooner or later, you will too. Equally uncomfortable is that we know relatively little about pain, and our efforts towards understanding and “relief” is both slow and frustrating. iAwareables researched perspectives on that moment of relief. This creative design - symbolizing the chaos of pain transitioning to calmer waters, white clouds and sunshine of butterflies - is our interpretation of that input. (The scarf initially because, statistically, women suffer about 15% greater incidence of chronic pain.)
The mission of every Infectious Awareables scarf is to generate interest, discussion, even excitement about serious public health issues such as this silk Biohazard Anthrax scarf.
