Today it is hard to find a commercial break during Prime Time where someone isn’t trying to sell you the next great drug to help you manage some aspect of chronic pain. If you’ve listened to my first two podcasts, you know that chronic pain is hard on multiple systems in the body, memory loss, cognition, your immune system, relationships become strained, all this just to name a few.In this episode we will examine good sleep hygiene, do’s and don’ts. We’ll provide you with tips, or things you can do to get a good night’s sleep every time. I’ll discuss an Army experiment where a squadron performed artillery exercises for 20 days straight while being sleep deprived. Then I’ll close with some comments on what it is to “Get better.” And what does “getting better” actually mean. I’m doing that in the hope you find some meaning for the chronic pain you might suffer and ultimately equipping and arming you with information needed to help you make decisions regarding your health care options.Check out our website at www.strivingtothriving.com

In this brief podcast, I discuss both the need and how movement and exercise is critical to pain reduction.Chronic pain is a thief. It steals the fun, excitement and joy in life you once had. Things are different now. Your day likely starts and ends with the pain that restricts you from living the life you had. If you struggle with chronic pain living a sedentary lifestyle lacking joy from the activities you used to do, please reach out to me and allow me to walk beside you, and coach you so you can reclaim your life from chronic pain, and rediscover the greatness within you.
In this short podcast, I talk about the cost of dreams and what it requires to make your dream become reality. Those in chronic pain often give up in life, lose hope and stop dreaming. Chronic pain is not a sentence to death, but should rather be viewed in the context of changes we have to make in life. While those changes are difficult, one should never give up on turning their dreams into reality. If you struggle with chronic pain and you life is far from what you hoped and dreamed it would be, please reach out to me. Let's craft a plan to make your dreams your reality.
In the fifth installment of this series, Pain 101, I talk about one of the greatest struggles chronic pain sufferers must wrestle. It is one of the most common and detrimental experiences those with chronic pain must address, and do so in healthy, non-destructive ways. The subject in this episode is how to experience and move through grief. I discuss how grieving for those living in chronic pain differs from the experience of grief from loss from death or divorce. I compare the commonly referenced, “Five Stages of Grief” which is not appropriate for chronic pain, and introduce a more recent model for those in chronic pain vs. that of death.
