Patient Leader

I am a chronic pain/illness warrior who currently has multiple diagnosis and is also working on trying to live healthier. I recently have had to adjust my life and make changes due to pharmaceutical side effects that make the benefit no longer worth it. I advocate for numerous diagnosis and volunteer with the National Fibromyalgia and Chronic Pain Association, US Pain Foundation, American Chronic Pain Association, MS Society and a few others. I coordinate a local in person and online support group, as well as an international online group and several other social media platforms. I believe we as patients need to be the advocates to make an impact on the world and bring our issues to life.
