Released Monday, 5th October 2020
Good episode? Give it some love!
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.

From The Podcast

Striving to Thriving is your resource for those things related to the biological, psychological and social (biopsychosocial) aspects and challenges of chronic pain. My name is David Hall and I am a certified health and wellness coach, and a Chronic Pain Support Group Facilitator, certified by the U.S. Pain Foundation. I worked in the microelectronics and biomedical device manufacturing industries for over 30 years. In 2007, I sustained an injury to my spine in a bad rollover accident, ultimately requiring the implant of a spinal cord stimulator to manage my pain. Three years ago, because of a surgery that didn’t go as planned, I contracted one of the most painful chronic conditions, CRPS (Complex Regional Pain Syndrome), also known as the suicide disease. Despite these challenges, with the help and education I received from my pain specialist, I made the arduous journey from Striving to Thriving despite my challenges with chronic pain. I have devoted my life to continuing her work, helping those struggling in chronic pain.My podcasts will address a myriad of topics related to chronic pain, neuroscience, wellness, lifestyle adaptation, neurology and psychology of pain, various forms of therapy, and more. I will also host special guests from time to time who provide solutions, treatments, technologies and legislation regarding treatment and care of people afflicted with chronic pain.
