Tomorrow, as an event to mark Chronic Pain Awareness Month, the organization For Grace is holding the 5th Annual ‘Women in Pain Conference’. Exciting stuff!
As it’s in LA, you can bet that I’ll most definitely be there in person. BUT, no matter where you live in the whole entire world, you can be there too! Nope, it isn’t that I’ve perfected my teleporting equipment (though you best believe I’ve tried my very best…) Instead, a live webcast will begin at 9am Pacific time.
More details can be found if you click here. Hope to see you guys there!
Oops! I meant to put this up yesterday! But in addition to September being National Pain Awareness Month… this week marks National Invisible Chronic Illness Awareness Week:
A worldwide effort to bring together people who live with invisible chronic illnesses, and those who love them.
Are you a blogger? Well, join the effort!
You’re of course welcome to participate at anytime throughout this week (head to www.invisibleillnessweek.com for one of those handy-dandy badges) and of course you’re more than welcome to continue throughout the year as well! In fact, your efforts would be applauded in the fight to raise awareness as well as in raising hope, support, and encouragement for others going through similar experiences.
I’m rushing off to Physical Therapy, but more on Invisible Illness Week once I get back. xx
A man’s illness is his private territory and - no matter how much he loves you and how close you are - you stay an outsider. You are healthy.” / Lauren Bacall
