Hello everyone, Thank you for letting me a part of your group. I look forward to connecting with you.
My battles include fibromyalgia, neuropathy, tinnitus, back/pelvic pain, chest pain, daily headache, fatigue, diabetes, depression and anxiety. But while I live with chronic pain, I have chosen to accept the pain (never giving up on solutions but not doctor chasing anymore) and take control of the pain instead of it controlling me. Easier said than done, I know. But with help from my local doctors and the Mayo Clinic Pain Rehabilitation Center (highly recommend), I have the tools I need to lead a functional life. A life still much different than my life before chronic pain but a life I can still enjoy.
If you live in the Des Moines, Iowa area, I welcome you to come to the support group I started last fall. You can find more information here:https://chronicpainsupportgroupdesmoinesia.weebly.com/.
