This is the second series of ‘Living with…’ – ‘Living with Chronic Pain’. Authors working with Anglia Counselling share and educate on issues that matter. We have five guests sharing their personal stories about living with chronic illness/pain.
Five days of unique authors sharing up close and personal accounts of their experiences of living with debilitating pain and suffering – emotional and physical. They share much to be positive about, it is far from down-beat!
Opening for us is Jo Gifford, mum of two and inspiring creative entrepreneur. Jo shares her story of CFS and ‘endo’ and how she manages to create workarounds to accommodate the challenges these conditions bring. (See: Living with Chronic Pain – Day 1)
Therapist and trainer Maggie Stanley shares her insight into expectations of others around her connective tissue disease and Rheumatoid Arthritis challenges – just because she is a therapist! (See: Living with Chronic Pain – Day 2)
Meet Angela, passionate about reducing stigma and although her decades of pain have had physical attachments – they were predominately of a psychological nature.
