Keep Speaking Out About Pain

Keep speaking out.
My personal path into patient advocacy began with speaking at conferences about my struggle with complex regional pain syndrome, and, then, writing a book about it. But I know first-hand that speaking up isn’t easy–it can leave you feeling vulnerable and exposed, and it requires your already-limited energy and time. 
That’s why I’m so grateful to each pain warrior who has participated in our #LetsTalkAboutPain campaign. Whether commenting on a Daily Challenge post on social media, sharing a video as part of our Storyathon, attending an online event, or participating in any other way — your efforts make a difference.
There’s one week left for Pain Awareness Month. Let’s make it count!
