Hello! I’m Bonnie Boots and I’m delighted to welcome you to the blog for Pain Health News. This blog serves the main web site, Pain Health News, helping to provide a more interactive format where we can meet and offer information, support and motivation to people living with pain.
One of my favorite quotes comes from Thomas Jefferson, who said “Who then can so softly bind up the wound of another as he who has felt the same wound himself?”
Doctors, therapists and experts of all sorts may study pain, diagnose pain, attempt to heal pain, but only someone who has experienced chronic pain truly understands what it feels like, physically and emotionally, to live with pain as a constant companion.
I hope you’ll join me in creating an active community of people who truly understand the challenges of living with chronic pain and who are committed to making life better through education and commitment to healing pain by any means possible, whether by standard medical treatment or alternative and natural methods. Together, we can make a difference-in our lives, in our world.
Please make yourself at home. Your comments are most welcome. And so are your emails. Do contact me when you have questions, concerns or thoughts you want to share.
People struggling with pain sometimes feel useless, like they have nothing to give the world. But I tell you this…the most valuable thing you can give is information about your own struggles and victories, trials and adventures. Because somewhere, someone waging the war against pain will benefit from your experience.
So whine, rant, rage, commiserate and motivate. It’s all good!
