"Pain is the most social and trans-generational subject I know, so why not make it the easiest subject for people to talk about and learn."  Harvey Schiller, Chairman of lettrs, Inc.

Since 1950, pain has become a global phenomenon, creating addictions to Opiods, isolating people to loneliness, and even limiting the potential of the 1.5 billion people in the world estimated to have chronic pain.  Pain can be both physical and emotional, but it is always social in varying degrees.

Painly as the most meaningful application of mobile communications and social media that I have heard about in a decade. The network inspires a new lens by which to see pain as something more than just medication.
