Trigeminal Neuralgia - Visualized

I hope it helps you see and if you also have Trigeminal Neuralgia, I hope it helps you know you're not alone.


"There's a monster inside my face, It creeps and seeps into my teeth, Grinding and twisting the nerves between, My eye sags and melts inside, My cheek crackles open with jolts and stabs, My bones ache and burn, I long for relief, But this monster never sleeps."
