Meet someone JUST LIKE YOU.
WHEN: Saturday, November 14th, 2009 from 11am-1pm.
WHERE: Meeting place is 2 Blocks from Sunset and Vine. Come make new friends!
The Los Angeles / Hollywood Chronic Pain Support Group was established to get together once a month to talk intimately about life, love, and living with Chronic Pain. For us, it is important to have a safe monthly gathering place for anyone suffering from chronic pain. We share our triumphs, hurdles and pain.
We encourage attendees to share about how they soothe themselves during flare-ups, how they manage work and play, and how they juggle the body and mind in the hopes that we each can find new ways of getting out of pain for longer periods of time. Our main purpose of meeting is simply to have a place to discuss the REAL issues we each face.
In an intimate setting we’ll share our experience, strength, and hope with one another. We’ll discuss the hurdles we really face of living with chronic pain. The frightening reality of intimacy, the reality of relationships, managing a job or boss, and positive ways that we’ve found to cut down on our pain. The group’s focus is to discuss issues we face living with chronic pain for any reason – some my have Lupus, others may have had an injury. I have Lupus, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Chronic Pancreatitis, and Diabetes Type 2.

The meetings are currently being held at in an artist loft’s building in Hollywood. The meeting format is in an intimate, safe environment,
