Chronic Pain Webinar Set for Tuesday, May 15th

By Ed Coghlan.

“Chronic pain takes a huge toll on the individual, their family, and society as a whole,” says Stanford’s Dr. Sean Mackey in a tweet last week. “People shouldn’t suffer in silence.”

He’s right, of course.

The sense of isolation and frustration that many people suffering from chronic pain is worsening according to many.

That’s a theme that Jenni Grover, founder of ChronicBabe.com will address tomorrow (Tuesday, May 15th) in a webinar sponsored by the U.S. Pain Foundation.

Grover, who is the author of Chronic Babe 101: How to Craft an Incredible Life Beyond Illness, will read from her book and then answer questions from attendees about how to fight through and thrive even while suffering from chronic pain.

(If you’d like to submit a question in advance, email emily@uspainfoundation.org.)

Jenni Grover

Jenni Grover draws on her experience with fibromyalgia and other conditions to teach women to craft incredible lives despite illness. Since 2005, Jenni has taught thousands of women to take charge of their lives through her website, videos, and speeches around the world. Her book was published in 2017.

Jenni is also a pain ambassador for U.S. Pain Foundation in the state of Illinois and works on a wide variety of projects for the organization, including the INvisible Project.

“US Pain is committed to creating pain awareness by breaking down barriers and advocating for change,” said Nicole Hemmenway, Vice President of US Pain. ‘For many people with chronic pain, having a conversation about chronic pain with someone like Jenni who knows what they are going through is an important experience. We are pleased that she can lead this type of conversation with people we care about.”

Hemmenway herself has battled chronic pain and has written her own book “No, It’s Not in My Head: The Journey of a Chronic Pain Survivor from Wheelchair to Marathon”.

Rich R. Our First Lady had kidney surgery today,I wish her well.I just wonder if Attorney General Jeff Sessions tells her to take an Aspirin and Tough It Out.Opps,I forgot the Whitehouse primary doctor the “Candy Man”has a bag of drugs for everybody at the WH.You don’t need a script,referral,appt.and nothing is documented.Like I mentioned I wish our First Lady Well.Millions of us Disabled Chronic Pain Patients and Veterans don’t have the Luxury of a Candy Man,we are left to suffer inhumanly and sadly hundreds if not thousands committed suicide.The CDC won’t admit they lied and inflated the Opiod OD Deaths and ever rewrite the CDC Opiod Guidelines.Somebody has to stop the suffering and Inhumane treatment of our Disabled Chronic Pain Patients and our Beloved Veterans.Like I said the the ignorant officials at CDC will never admit they lied about the inflated Opiod OD Deaths that most Died from Heroin and Fentanyl.I pray someone steps up before things get a lot worse for us and the people who wrote the Guidelines such as PROP.People can only get pushed so far and suffer so much before they go off the deep end.Its not one or two suffering it’s millions,a travesty.I just comprehend how my government can do this to disabled people with diseases,chronic pain and veterans,yet we bomb Syria for using nerve gas against its people.And won’t Waterboard Terrorists because it’s torture,but it can take away medicine elderly people been taking for years.Vote everyone out of the Senate,Congress and Governers.Just look it up on Google which ones were for PROP and all this [edit].

I am so happy there are people out there trying to stop the mistreatment of cpp and intractable pain.what is currently happening to us is unprecedented and i can’t believe this is America.I do know that addiction is real and scary but we can’t continue to blame cpp.We are people that deserve to be protected. We work,are mothers,fathers,church members,aunts,uncles and we are loved and we have a purpose too.
