VILLAGER TO VILLAGER:
Each month we hope to share a villager's experience with a health issue and how that person is working to deal with it. If you have had an experience with a health issue and would like to contribute to this column, call Marc Narkus-Kramer or email him.
This month, Marc and his wife, Grazina share their positive experience with a FREE workshop entitled "Healthier Living with Chronic Pain."
Marc reported the workshop was a six-week course, based on Sandra Lefort's, et.al. book, Living a Healthy Life with Chronic Pain. The class met weekly for 2 1/2 hours to learn skills to cope with chronic pain. "We learned how chronic pain can affect mood, energy, and relationships with others. There is a cycle of chronic pain that leads to a lack of sleep, decreased exercise, depression, isolation and a feeling of helplessness.
The course was not focused on a medical solution though we learned how to evaluate the medical advice we have been given. Rather, the course focused on behavioral tools that really help in managing chronic pain. After learning the recommended behavioral tools, we developed an individualized action plan to carry out the behavioral changes that we were taught. The class gave us the tools to manage chronic pain."
While the class has ended, new classes will be forming in the new year. If you are suffering from chronic pain and need tools to help you deal with it, call 858-495-5500 for more information.
Two other courses by the same group deal with all chronic conditions and diabetes. You can read about them at:
