I keep stumbling over this story and have added it to my favourites for probably the fifth time, just to be sure, so I think a rewiew is in order. Here we go: loved the story and can't stop thinking about it. I really wished that something of this sort had happened in the show. Thank you for taking the CHRONIC pain issue so much more serious than the writers of the show. And I really disliked the whole Vicodin addiction storyline and attempting to manage his pain with fucking ibuprofen. Give me a break. That was nowhere near believable. I really liked how you dealt with that in your fic. I was pretty upset that House never seemed to have a Bad Pain Day if it didn't fit in the storyline and could be written off as psychosomatic, just a Bad Pain Day/ Breakthrough Pain from walking to much, or even without any factors like normal people with chronic pain have. Kind of disrespectful to chronic pain sufferers, on some level. Thanks for writing and sharing this.

Nicely done. Very nicely done. I'm a big fan of fill-in-the-blank types of stories that are anchored in canon, and you handled this really, really well. Great job.

nice history :)

Really nice story. Like the way you address House's pain. I always thought that Cuddy and Wilson where pretty callous about this, especially being doctors themselves. It is easier to call House a jerk with psychosomatic pain than to admit that you have a friend and colleague that is suffering from serious chronic pain and support this proud and private man to the best of your abilities. Your story describes a very realistic way Cuddy discovering her mistake.

I really love this. It fills a huge gap left in the canon, something I never understood. How can Cuddy, as a doctor, "forget" what chronic pain is?! It always amazed me with how much nonchalance and levity both Wilson and Cuddy, but more so Cuddy, treated the issue of House's pain. And, frankly, ibuprofen after Mayfield was a joke.
Thank you for writing this!

Beautiful. Really beautifully written, it made me cry a bit. I totally agree with you that they haven't paid enough attention to Houses pain in his leg. Thank you. X

This was beautifully done. You captured the emotion of the characters so well, and I loved seeing the vulnerability and pain that he felt. I'm with you, I wish they had shown us more of this particular struggle during their actual relationship. Great job!

I am becoming a great fan of your writing. This is lovely, and how I wish it had gone for House.

I am truly enchanted by your story!

Your story was wonderful and really got down to the root of his pain and how deeply it hurts. being a sufferer of chronic pain myself and an avid House fan, it was so refreshing to see someone depict it in such a real and honest way. You didn't shy away from its sadness, the ugly parts of it, because in reality, it isn't heroic, it isn't stoic, it's just plainly and simply horrible. I wish sometimes that the other characters in the show would feel his pain more, or at least try to understand it, but for some reason they really can't. I hope that someday this is the kind of loving relationship that Cuddy and House will be able to have.

Aw, sweet. :)

This was deeply moving and gave us a glance into what might have happened behind closed doors.
I too was disappointed with how they just swept House's pain under the carpet as if he could easily adapt to simple over-the-counter analgesics.
As you said, chronic pain is chronic. It never goes away.
Thank you for giving us a little more realism in season 7.
Also, I liked the parallels between the storm and House's pain. They both seemed to reach crescendo together and then fade, leaving behind clear skies and some much needed peace for House.

I'm absolutely amazed with this story and happy how you showed House's chronic pain and how much he hides from the people. This is what I was hoping to see when Huddy started and never got. I wanted her to see and understand, because then she might have been able to stop judging him and calling him an addict every time he craved some pain relief.
I recommended this story to my friends and I can hardly believe I missed the chance to leave a review. I guess the page was unresponsive then. Well, that's a point I'm remedying now.
Pity we don't get a super favorites list, because this is going to the top 10 of my personal favorites list. Thank you.
