Chronic pain insists on presenting me with the unexpected.
Today, I found myself on the Kerferd Road Pier in Port Melbourne, participating in the making of an advertisement that the Australian and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists (ANZCA) are making to raise awareness and funds for chronic pain. How could I say, ‘no’? Actually, I’m ashamed to say, I nearly did say ‘no’, but I quickly motivated myself by thinking of the star of this commercial who is a 5-year-old boy with arthritis.
The amazing team for Sceneon handled the filming, and from what I gathered today, the concept of chronic pain is going to be well documented and represented. Don’t want to give away too much, just a few behind the scenes shots. You’ll only have to wait a month to see the outcome.

To add to the ‘unexpected’ adventures of chronic pain, I finally met Marika Silwedel whom also featured on A Current Affair’s (ACA’s) Nerve Pain story the same night I was. Who would have thought two people would eventually met via a pain story and ACA!?
