Your Story (Required)

We know it can be overwhelming, so here are a few suggestions on questions to help you begin! Again, share whatever feels right. We want to know how pain affects your life, about your dreams and hopes, concerns and fears, struggles and triumphs.

Questions to think about:

  • How long have you been living with pain?
  • How has pain affected your life?
  • What barriers, if any, have prevented you from receiving effective pain care?
  • What have been your experiences, positive and negative, when seeking treatments?
  • Have you found a treatment that brings relief?
  • What complementary therapies, if any, have you tried? And have they been helpful?
  • Do you still envision a better, pain-free future?

What advice would you give to other pain warriors?
