ANNA: Chronic pain can be a difficult journey. Some days are better than others. Those living with chronic pain need time and support. Time to recover. Time to heal. Time to embrace. As I am journeying through my own chronic pain, I have found surrounding myself with loving, non-judgmental, individuals has provided me with the most hope that there will be more good days than difficult ones. We rise by lifting each other.
BETH: My journey with chronic pain began after I was injured in an accident . Six months , several surgeries , and many specialists later, I was diagnosed with Complex Regional Pain Syndrome or CRPS. I was in disbelief at how quickly life can change. Anger, fear, frustration, and a sense of loss of control in my life led me to feel so alone. On this journey, I have decided I wouldn’t let pain defeat me, and I wanted to thrive in my life. With this support group, I hope to give back to others who are on this journey living life with chronic pain. By listening, sharing, and supporting each other, we can learn to pace ourselves and thrive together.
