This is a group for people who understand what it is like to suffer with this monster called chronic pain. I know how hard it can be to connect with others who understand what it is like to live with this. Chronic pain, particularly moderate to severe chronic pain, can be isolating and depressing. Not only is it difficult to connect with people who understand, it can be hard just to get out and connect with people in general.
That is why I started this group. I wanted to create a place where people with moderate to severe chronic pain could come together, socialize, and support each other. This group is a safe place for us to talk about things we can't talk about with people in our lives who do not understand chronic pain.
We have peer support group meetings on the 3rd Thursday of each month from 5pm-7pm. We also have social events during which members can connect and get to know each other. You must attend a support group meeting before attending a social event. Please message the organizer if you have any questions about this or anything else.
My hope is for this to be a group where people can laugh, cry, vent, and encourage and inspire each other. Life goes on, and I want us all to live as fully as we possibly can!
