on treatment plans

[January | Weaving therapies together like a wreath by Jamie Ashforth]

Where should we go when professionals lead us astray?

When specialists are overbooked and underfunded?

When drugs prescribed to help do harm instead?

We will not settle

We will seek talented, compassionate healers

We will demand better care and better research

We will learn to see through empty promises and snake oil

We will try things that make sense to us, as unique individuals

With unique symptoms, budgets, responsibilities, and schedules

Until the medical profession as a whole plays closer attention to

The importance of comprehensive and complex chronic pain education

We will boldly devise our own treatment plans

 

[Excerpt from 2016 Calendar “Chronic Pain Has Many Faces”]
