I recently ran across https://healthskills.wordpress.com/, a self-professed blog for “Health Professionals Supporting Chronic Pain Self Management.” While intended for health professionals, I’ve found the blog to provide insightful and compassionate discussions of pain management and the effects of pain.

I invite you to explore the entire site, but I’ve provided links to two of the posts that really resonated with me. The first dealing with the impact of pain acceptance and the second about the “them-and-us” attitudes that some health care professionals have concerning their patients dealing with pain. The second asks the highly charged question of whether or not patients (who actually experience the pain) shouldn’t have a voice in the discussion. I know, what a concept, huh?

I hope that you find the site as thought-provoking as I have. Thanks for checking in.
