Being Yourself Is More Than Enough

Posted on May 14, 2018

"After years of feeling like I need to be better, stronger, healthier, and in control, I now know I am enough." - Member of MyChronicPainTeam

Members of MyChronicPainTeam experience the burden of chronic pain physically, emotionally, and psychologically. Sometimes we strive to appear healthier than we are to avoid the stigma of invisible pain. Other times, we experience relief and support from others who've been in our shoes.

"I'm getting out of the rat race. I'm not hiding my pain anymore. If I'm tired, I'm going to rest. Hearing from others with chronic pain has taught me that I have to prioritize ME."
-Member of MyChronicPainTeam

Here are recent conversations from MyChronicPainTeam:

"Hello everyone! Please remember you're not alone and we have your back. Pain is a mentally and physically draining condition and having a support group is always a great way of connecting with those just like you."

"Been feeling the pain for the last few days, but I felt like getting stuff done. So I did. I feel good about it. It did nothing but exacerbate the pain, but it was a joy to pretend to be a typical person. Just for a couple of days."

"I started to swim today, hopefully, I can do this every day. I just did a bike riding motion in the water. Hopefully, that will help me walk better, but boy I was sore when I got out."
