An important realization we can make when we are living with pain and illness is the fact that we are not alone. There are people across the world that are afflicted with the same disorders, symptoms, stresses, and pain. Pain can be amplified when we feel like we are dealing with it on our own. Fortunately, there are many options available for people to seek and find support. The Chronic Pain Association of Canada has made their mission statement to:

"Prevent and relieve unnecessary pain and to improve the quality of life and daily function of people who suffer from pain through education and awareness."

Finding the Right Group For You

People are always willing to lend emotional and pain support. Not only are there scheduled support-groups that encompass all chronic pain conditions, there are also support groups specific to certain ailments. Whether you are living with fibromyalgia, arthritis, cancer, multiple sclerosis, Crohn's disease, sciatica, or any other condition that can cause you pain and anguish, there is support available. There is also support available online in the form of support group forums and chats. Building an online community can be a good way to reach out to large groups of people and be less anxiety-inducing than sharing your personal story face-to-face. Feeling a sense of shared experience and familiarity in a group of other pain-sufferers can often feel like a breath of fresh air.

Having the Courage to Ask for Help

Deciding to seek outside emotional support for a condition takes courage. When our bodies are in pain we don't have a problem seeking the medical help of a doctor because we want to maintain our physical health. People become more hesitant when it is time to take care of their emotional health and find support. A chronic condition can arguably cause just as much pain and harm to our emotional state as our physical one. The risk of developing depression sits between 10-25% for women and 5-12 % for men, these numbers rise to 22-33% when dealing with a demographic of chronic illness sufferers. Not only can chronic illnesses lead to depression, depression can make chronic conditions worse. Learning to handle the emotional stress of a diagnosis (and long after this) can help improve your overall health.
