What we're about
WHAT WE ARE:
We are a Support Group for people who live with Fibromyalgia and other forms of Chronic Pain. No matter what the official diagnosis, we all share a common experience - what it's like to live with daily pain. We "Get It". This group is about creating community, gaining strength from each other and ending the isolation of chronic pain.
HOW IT WORKS:
The set up of our group is like a standard support group. I usually name a topic, and share a personal story about that topic. Then we go around the table, and everyone shares their story. We often exchange valuable information, such as: physical tools we're using for pain reduction, meditation tools, vitamin and supplement tips, and connection to various local resources. These resources include bodywork practitioners, doctors, specialists and clinics; who provide either holistic or traditional care, or both.
MY GOAL: To empower our members to live their best life, despite chronic pain. Yes, it is possible!
WHAT WE ARE NOT:
1. A dating service. 2. A substitute for private counseling. 3. A source for prescription medication.
Please Note: I am not a licensed therapist. If you need more help, please call 211 for connection to local resources, such as sliding-fee counseling and financial assistance.
