This is a group for people who want to talk about the emotional toll of chronic pain. The place to come and let down the walls, take the mask off, and share with people who have been there or who are going through the same thing. Chronic pain invades every relationship you have - even the one with yourself - and it's often hard to talk to loved ones and friends. You don't want to sound like a whiner, you don't want pity, and you get sick of trying to figure out if someone really means it when they say "how are you?". This is not a solutions oriented group - it a place to vent, to lend your support, to share your strength and experience, and to see that you are not alone in facing the relationship difficulties that chronic pain creates. In order for each person to feel comfortable sharing where they are in their journey, it's important that other members not offer solutions during the meeting. You can't solve feelings - you have to go through them. My goal is a monthly meeting in a private space where folks will feel comfortable sharing, along with a monthly outing.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
