Communicating Beyond Chronic Pain
Chronic pain impacts people in many more ways than simply the physical.
Communicating Beyond Chronic Pain will focus on coping with the social ramifications of living with chronic pain or illness. Communicating effectively has a remarkable ability to alleviate suffering, even in the face of constant pain.
During this session, you will hear personal stories from myself and others living with chronic pain about how pain has effected our social lives, friendships and relationships with family. We will discuss methods of coping and the benefits of finding ways to communicate the changes in your life to your loved ones.
Chronic pain can make us feel isolated, misunderstood and alone in our suffering. This session will help you to connect with people who understand what you are going through and introduce you to ways in which you can reach out and share support via the Internet.
You are not alone. Come along to this free cyber chat, from the comfort of your own home. Whoever you are, whether you want to share or simply watch and listen, whether you suffer chronic pain, or know someone who does, or simply want to learn…you are welcome here.
Any questions? Please feel free to email me: firstname.lastname@example.org
