On MyChronicPainTeam, the social network and online support group for those living with chronic pain, members talk about a range of personal experiences and struggles. Emotional health is one of the top 10 topics most discussed.

Here are a few question-and-answer threads about emotional health:

Does anyone find a correlation between stress and pain?
