Review for The Pain Community (a DBA of Women With Pain Coalition), Alamo, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Before I found the Pain Community, I felt alone with the pain I have suffered with for 36 years. The knowledge and friendships that have I have developed let me have hope. Depression goes hand in hand with chronic pain and it can sweep you up and carry you to a place where you would rather take your life just to end the pain. I now have friends that I can reach out to when I get close to that edge and their friendship and love will let me hang on and lift me out of depression. Thank you Pain Community for being there.

Review for The Pain Community (a DBA of Women With Pain Coalition), Alamo, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

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.
