Chronic Pain and Illness

Chronic pain and illness refer to conditions characterized by persistent, long-term discomfort, pain, or health issues that last for an extended period, often beyond the expected time for healing. These conditions can significantly impact a person's physical, emotional, and social well-being. Chronic pain and illness are diverse, encompassing a wide range of conditions.

Living with chronic pain or illness requires ongoing management and adaptation. It's essential for individuals with chronic conditions to work closely with healthcare professionals to develop a comprehensive health care plan to support them in healing. Additionally, emotional support from friends, family, and mental health professionals can play a crucial role in improving the overall well-being of individuals dealing with chronic pain and illness.

Training and personal experience have prepared me to support you as you negotiate the medical system and help you learn to manage long term illness and/or pain. Gaining support and tools to cope can be invaluable. You don’t have to do it alone.
