The American Chronic Pain Association (ACPA) is a wonderful resource for medical and practical information about chronic pain. On the website you find information about the many health conditions and diseases that cause chronic pain. You learn about medications and treatments, pain management, and pain awareness and understanding.
If you join, you can opt to receive the quarterly Chronicle, a journal with a wealth of articles, suggestions, book reviews and updates on ACPA goings-on.
In the June 2014 Chronicle:
- From the lead article, Pace Thyself: Listening to our Bodies -- "In this issue of the ACPA Chronicle, we will look at how to set priorities so you use your good days wisely. We'll also discuss how to use pacing to accomplish these priorities. Our goal is to gain a feeling of satisfaction for a job well done, with a minimum of pain, and a life well lived."
- The article, Prioritization Prompts a New Mindset, Uncovers Blessings, covers these topics -- "Mind Over Matter," "Taking Ownership," "Appreciating Today," and "Structured But Flexible."
- An article by the editor, Alison J. Conte, entitled, Pacing and Priorities: Finding a Way Back to What's Important.
- And more...
I hope you get as much out of this resource as I have.
As I work toward improving this blog, I am trying to add Disqus (a service that enables better conversations on websites and blogs). It's taking me a while to figure out how to do it. In the meanwhile, you can leave a comment through Google+ or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
