What Does Chronic Pain Mean to Me?

Chronic Pain is not the centre of my life!

Chronic Pain influences and prognosis's start with me

Living with Pain with no relief – Push through the pain to feel better ex. walking and breathing


Communicating with my spouse what I can do and not what I can’t do.

Opportunity to nurture and obtain greater depth and breadth of understanding of myself and others

Self-inventory (mindfulness)

Slowed down and gave up some activities I used to like but now looking for new activities I can do

Accept and do yourself with the toolbox to break pain cycle

Positivity re: use toolbox 

Trust Health Care to help understand pain

Use tools that work for me!
