There are different approaches to facing my daily severe chronic pain. One is not to do it alone.
The American Chronic Pain Association is a non-profit group that provides chronic pain sufferers, their families, caregivers and friends access to groups, materials, clinical studies and news, that will assist them in having a productive life despite pain.
I highly recommend the Communication Tools. They're helpful in preparing for your doctor's appointments and tracking your pain, for free.
Stop by their website for more information.
