Fibromyalgia / Chronic Pain

 

Conditions such as Fibromyalgia and Chronic pain/fatigue can often have a psy­cho­log­i­cal or emo­tional com­po­nent that is rarely addressed by con­ven­tional med­ical treatment.This is often viewed as being all in the mind which sug­gests that the suf­ferer has some con­trol over the pain or fatigue. This type of con­di­tion is often viewed with sus­pi­cion, as if the suf­ferer is “putting the ill­ness on” just because there is no obvi­ous phys­i­cal injury. These con­di­tions have very real symp­toms which need addressing before a person’s recov­ery can begin. These symp­toms do not go away with rest, some peo­ple may wake up feel­ing unre­freshed by sleep, to the extent that peo­ple describe wak­ing up feel­ing like they have been “run over by a bus”.

This is a group designed for peo­ple who want to find sup­port and feel able to freely dis­cuss their expe­ri­ences and frus­tra­tions with oth­ers who face sim­i­lar phys­i­cal chal­lenges with­out feel­ing judged. If you or some­one you know is suf­fer­ing from chronic pain or fatigue this group aims to help unlock the unhelpful or destructive pat­terns which may be hin­der­ing your recov­ery. It will offer sup­port for both pain man­age­ment and explo­ration of the emo­tional  impact of the frus­tra­tions of life after sud­denly being struck down with this con­di­tion. Help­ing peo­ple with the depres­sion that can fol­low when you are not get­ting bet­ter what­ever you try and help you to move through depres­sion into recov­ery.

You will learn how to lis­ten to your body in order to dis­cover what your body needs to return to health.
