Starting Behavioral Pain Management

I started the six week behavioral pain management program at The Lemons Center yesterday. The program is every weekday morning for six weeks and focuses on physical therapy and coping skills to help manage a life with chronic pain. I can already tell this is going to be a great fit for me. I definitely need the help with physical rehabilitation to be able to regain energy and stamina, and the psychological content is ideal. It is readily apparent that everyone who works at the clinic "gets" chronic pain. They don't challenge you on your perception of the pain you are experiencing. They understand that things like stress make chronic pain harder to cope with, but do not cause the pain. And everyone is so incredibly kind. As I learn new information and coping skills I will do my best to pass that along to all of you.
