I have chronic myofascial pain which has been complicated by long-term benzodiazepine therapy and the benzodiazepine withdrawal syndrome. I'm interested in anything that adds to my quality of life, whether it be medical, spiritual or social.
Our organizer, Art, has planned a solution-focused group, not a monthly gripe session. Proactive suggestions in a positive atmosphere are precisely what people with chronic pain need in a support group. A support group is only as successful as its members make it. If you think you'd benefit from a chronic pain support group, then join and participate. Your physical presence isn't required for participation ... though it is nice to get together with others who understand chronic pain.
