Good episode? Give it some love!
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.

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. If you find value in my podcast, please leave a positive rating with whatever service you use.
