Living life with chronic illness* and pain is terribly isolating. Just surviving day-to-day can take all the energy we have and a social life is near impossible. Our family and friends try to understand, but there's something special about connecting with other people in our situation. I want this group of chronic illness/pain sufferers to be a safe space where we can be open about our struggles and get back empathy instead of judgment, support each other without competition, share coping mechanisms and treatments without obligation or pressure, and have fun with other people who accept and understand our lives and limitations.

Please do not use this group to advertise for any specific types of treatments, clinics, therapies, or products. 


*"Chronic illness" includes mental health disorders as well.
