Pain Awareness Month 2015 – Mid Month Review with Feature 7- The ACPA- History of Pain Awareness Month

I wish I could share the goodness of the world with everyone. The people I’ve shared have been people who are making an impact in the lives of others despite their own complications. Illness, disability, pain, yet hope enough in their passion’s to keep going… for you.

Some of them I barely know in the sense of talking with them. A few of them, I’ve had less than an hour or so of combined time in conversation exchange. Having the gift of knowing and the ability to feel at higher levels than most, I was compelled to ask these people if I could share them, honor them, and feature them this month. Each one of them, by their own energy, gave me a piece of them, the part that let me show you who they are in spirit. It was by a glimpse of their own souls experiences that led me to reach out to them.

Pain Awareness Month 2015 – Feature 1 – The Faces and Limbs of Pain

The faces and limbs in these videos are many of the people you have crossed paths with over the years. They may be your friend, colleague, or acquaintance.  For other’s, you may not have realized what it is they endure. They’ve shared this part of themselves to educate and bring awareness to Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy/Complex Regional Pain Syndrome. The faces you gaze upon seem fine, look well enough, perhaps not even a glimpse of pain, or discomfort. Such an illusion. The delusion lies less in the patient who complains than it does in the provider who doesn’t care to look beyond what initially seen.  You’ll then watch the limbs of people and if you make note, you’ll find that those faces …   live with more than just an ache.  To see it, you have to look beyond the faces.

It’s Pain Awareness Month. Share and make aware to continue the common mission of all of us everywhere who strive to make a difference in the lives of those suffering to survive.

Thank you for all you do!
