This ongoing support group is for anyone suffering from chronic illness, chronic pain, or medical trauma. The mind-pain connection is very real. You are not a victim to your diagnoses, and there is a life worth living in spite of the pain we go through. We don’t have to simply survive. We can learn to live fulfilling lives and find a new purpose, one we may never have imagined, through our pain.
