Chronic Pain sufferers groups for support

Started by Joeybobbie on 02/05/2011 4:15am

Hi are there any places like the AA does where people with Chronic Pain meet so they have someone who has the same problems and understands Chronic Pain and can talk together over coffee or something. It would be great if there was a group I could go to where we all could talk about things we are all experiencing in our lives. I don't really think the AA group is the place to go for chronic pain. I wish I knew how to start one if there aren't any. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Do you find this discussion helpful?

Hi Joey

I live in Montreal and I cant find any such groups. There must be some out there. But I think you should just start one. Come up with a rough draft of what you aim to do and then take it from there. Dont include all the God stuff from AA though, because nobody needs that and you would keep people away because of that. Good luck!
