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.
