Empathy is underrated. Hearing from people who live in pain or live with those in pain, has helped immensely. It has lessened the feeling of isolation and depression. I know I am not alone and people out there are in the same boat.
Being offered off the cuff advice like “just go for a walk”, can drive you to distraction. However, different treatments, excercise or coping mechanism that have worked for some are worth hearing about. You never know what is going to work.
Here are some ideas for your post – it can be anonymous too…
- experiences with doctors
- treatments you have received
- your story
- helpful resources
- positive outcomes & success stories
- coping mechanisms
- humourous anecdotes
- any other content that you feel might be helpful, relevant or useful.
Thank you for sharing your story. If you are just reading, I hope they are helpful.
