CLOSED: This discussion has concluded.

Wouldn’t wish this on anyone

by Tessa,

I have rheumatoid arthritis, fybromyalgia, bursitis in both hips, DDD along my spine, PFS and a few oth delightful issues. My DNA suggests I don’t react to pain like most of the population so I figure what I say hurts would kill someone else. I am tired of the looks and the unbelieving sarvastic remarks if I say I can’t make it Or I can’t do it etc. My life changes from moment to moment and I do things I know I will pay for later but that’s the way things are. A small outing or visit may take me days to recover from.
it is also so much more than just pain, there is fatigue, self worth, worry, anxiety and mourning for your old way of life. I don’t know what else to say other than unless you live it you have no clue. I don’t want anyone to have to live the way I do.

Thank you for your interest in this consultation with the Canadian Pain Task Force towards an improved approach to better understand, prevent, and manage pain in Canada. 

The online consultation is now closed, and written submissions are no longer being accepted. 

Feedback provided from the consultation will inform a report identifying best and leading practices, potential areas for improvement, and elements of an improved approach to pain management in fall 2020.
