Pain Awareness Month 2015 – Feature 2 – Trudy Thomas, Living with HOPE Radio Show

Living with HOPE began in 2007 under its original title Living with RSD. It was Trudy Thomas’ hope to learn more information about her own health issue, the debilitating and painful illness RSD/Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy and with that a show was born. Bringing both traditional Western Medical Practices and Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) practitioners with expertise in prevention to cutting edge technology.

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!
