Interested in joining a support group?
Living with chronic illness can feel like a never-ending journey. Many feel as if they have come from a past which represents all things lost, and are heading towards a future that is riddled with unknowns. Sharing one's story and knowing that you are not alone can provide compassion and an empathetic understanding to those living with chronic illness. Visit People in Pain Network for info on support options in your community.
Pain intervention: Trigger Point Injections, "What to expect"
Trigger Point Injections is a pain treatment for people who have tried most medication options but continue to struggle with pain control. We encourage patients to discuss trigger point injections with their primary care provider and if appropriate, request a referral to a community provider. Check out our handout, Trigger Point Injections: What to Expect, which provides information about trigger point injections before and after treatment.
We have designed a toolkit to help you "PEN" (Pace yourself, manage Expectations and Nutrition tips) when planning your social events. Use our toolkit, PEN down your event plans,to manage event planning all year round.
