You are not alone. An unexpected illness can change your world, but it doesn't have to take over your life. Meet others like you who are choosing to create a life beyond pain. This group will meet once per month at a local coffee shop and expand into a space where we can share the tools that work for us to laugh, heal and live abundantly.
For the mutual protection of our members, you must attend a public meet-up prior to attending a private event in a home. Again, all information shared at these events is confidential.
We all have pain. It is not a competition. We believe there is more to life than our pain, and we are committed to help one another move beyond our health stories and back into life again. Everyone is invited to share their story for two minutes at the first meeting they attend. This information will be held in confidence by all members.
This is not a pain management class, although we do share resources and hold compassion for one another. Building community is a vital part of taking control of your health. For this purpose, we are activity driven, and not story-driven. Hopefully you will find people you connect with and can journey with outside of the meetups for deeper connection. We share our resources, but no medical advice. We are not doctors, nor do we play doctors on facebook. We advocate for personal responsibility with medications and treatments, which are very individual, and we do not condone sharing medicine or medical information. Please be responsible.
If you have any questions about these guidelines, please contact the organizer. Thank you!
