82. It sure does. I've had bad pain before and know that depression.
I had appendicitis for ten years, and the only pain killer I could take was ibuprofen. When I woke up from my kidney surgery, I had almost no pain control, and I will never to my dying day forget that pain.

Chronic pain changes you. I know her frustration with painkillers and how hard it is to live with pain on that level. People who haven't lived with that kind of pain really don't get it, and you get awfully tired of explaining it to everyone.

I feel so bad for her.
