After six months I truly I am glad I joined this group and great organization. It truly as helped me lean more of the pain I go through daily and speaking to others and helping one another. The talks over the phone is wonderful and so much help. Thank you for being here for me and the many others I am sure you are helping.
I've volunteered for The Pain Community since its inception. I live with chronic pain myself and the services provided by TPC are crucial for those living with this disease. The chats and forum provide me a way to share with others who truly understand what I'm going through. They are positive and uplifting and give me hope. I've known the volunteers, board members and many of the participants for nearly 15 years and they are some of the best people I know.
This organization runs on a shoestring and deserves the support of those able to give it.
The pain community has helped me so much. I feel very supported
The pain community is great for people with pain. It's a great way to get support and have some one to talk to.
The Pain Community offers support and so much more. The online community is there so people with pain can talk and interact with others who truly understand a life with chronic pain.
The Pain Community is different than other non-profits who serve people living with pain. It isn't all about getting donations or trying to sell merchandise. The Pain Community is there to support us, to give people with pain a safe, comfortable and secure place to land. The Pain Community's online community is a wonderful caring place where you can get support and compassion. The outreach support conference calls are amazing, simply amazing. When you join one of the calls you instantly get the over whelming feeling of belonging and that you are exactly where you need to be and the support is fabulous.
I had never been disabled by pain before. With the progression of my condition and a significant increase in pain, everything changed. Many of the activities of daily living I'd always taken for granted were no longer easy to do. Just getting around and tending to all our basic needs became a struggle. Managing all the changes became a challenge. TPC and Teresa's conference call community provide a special weekly rest-stop on this difficult journey. On her call, Teresa has established an atmosphere of camaraderie..an environment that is healthy and responsive to the needs of people with chronic pain. It is a stress-free environment where people can relax and feel at ease just being who they are. Like its facilitator, the community is made up of caring people who, in mutual support, share with and inform one another in many important and positive ways.
The many great people at The Pain Community are always available to help you in your time of need with Chronic Pain. I, myself have been the lucky recipient far too many times to count. They give so much more than just plain old effort and the benefits to you will be enormous. World Wide Care Is Available To You. Reach Out. Shirly Reid
Albeit a relatively new organization, I can attest to the credibility of all who make The Pain Community what it is. Having worked with many of them in the past, I can tell you that this is a very dedicated group of caring people who educate and advocate those and theirs living with pain, be it acute or chronic. Kudos to TPC! Onward and upward!
TPC is a wonderful organization of fellow chronic pain warriors. It's so good to be supported and give support to others who suffer. I thank Teresa for her amazing work running the support groups.
I have been dealing with Chronic Pain for years and The Pain Community has helped me in a lot of ways. I have MS and RSD and the pain is like no other pain. The Pain Community (a DBA of Women With Pain Coalition) is a great site in helping others who deal with a lot of pain issues.
The Pain Community has a small group of volunteers who are passionate about helping people living with pain. They volunteer countless hours of their time to make sure people living with pain have the support they need and a safe place to go for support, compassion and education.
I am new to pain and it is hard to find trustworthy information online. The Pain Community refuses to give out any information that they cannot verify as being trustworthy. That gives members peace of mind and that means so much. As a person with pain I have enough to worry and stress about. The Pain Community helps me, help myself.
It is great to have a website that helps people living with pain.
The website at TPC is easy to use and is very helpful for people in pain.
The people who volunteer behind the scenes at TPC truly care about people who live with pain.
I have suffered from chronic pain since 1989 and I had to give up my career as a US Marine. Over the ensuing years, my body has continued to find new ways to experience pain. Pain that never leaves me 24/7 365. Chronic pain and depression go hand in hand and as pain worsened, my depression followed suit. I was in a very dark place in my life and had all but given up, on the verge of committing suicide. I stumbled across this organization and became a member of the chat room. Through this and the excellent information, I began to understand my pain more and ways to counter the pain. The staff members helped me find ways to communicate to my VA Care team. I have my depression under control and no longer consider the choice I came very close to making. I can say truthfully that TPC saved my life. I now attempt to repay the debt I owe them by volunteering as a moderator for the chat room.
I am a caregiver to my soul mate who lives with chronic pain. We have been on this bumpy road for over 20 years. I have seen her through the good and the bad. The Pain Community has allowed her to blossom. It gives her a safe, secure place to connect with others who live with pain. She needed The Pain Community and they have never failed her.
The people that volunteer their time at The Pain Community are wonderful, caring, and compassionate. You will be hard pressed to find a better group of folks. It isn't about money or status, they are there for one reason, they are passionate about helping all who live with pain.
