Pain God, I’ve founded a better way to do things

By |2017-12-17T12:37:26+00:00July 12th, 2017|Blog, Manage, Pain Train, Professional|

Embracing the health care system's push for self managed care I find it difficult to sit still (pun intended), when I can see a way to make a change for the better and to help others. In the case of Pain Train, it was actually creating something that didn't even exist in the chronic pain world. The Gods we look upto had nothing to offer in this area - it didn't exist. So I repeated my story, as you did/do a few million times during the few million appointments. Exhausting! Not to mention impossible. How are patients and their teams meant to manage (you know the thought, surely God doesn't expect me to repeat myself, again!)? Yes, the Gods do expect you to repeat yourself. How else can they help you? Well, there's an easier way for both of you/us!

So someone got talking to someone on a plane (you know how that story goes, your eyes begin to glaze over because you're in pain thinking 'if this friend tells me I need to meet someone and sustain a new friendship, I'm going to punch him' - but in the end, it works out that you wished you had sat next to that someone on the plane, and you meet that person and you wished you had met them a very long time ago (like eight years ago for me).
