Why solve for chronic pain in group?

The goal of the group is to create a safe and supportive space for those of us living with chronic back pain.

Pain can be isolating and depressing. People in pain are constantly being judged by those who don’t have pain. People think you are fine because pain is invisible. In a support group, you are with others who know this isn’t true.

The space is designed for you to find support and learn practical coping mechanisms.

Who is the group for?

This space is for those who are dealing with long-term or recurrent back pain due to various causes, such as injuries, conditions like herniated discs or arthritis, or other factors.

What will we talk about?

• What is it like to live with chronic pain
• Individual/relational/social impact
• Going about everyday lives, chores, jobs with pain
• The social stigma attched
• Our existing strengths and coping resources
• Collectively forming a pool of resources all of us can access and find help from

  • Thank you, you all truly understand what I’m going through. I hope you guys get some good sleep, have an easy day, your doctors listen to you and that you can do some of your favorite activities with little to no pain.

  • It was comforting to hear that other people went through similar things. And hearing what was good, what was bad, and what they would change.

    Raashi

  • I am so grateful to have joined the group. I feel more connected to others, less alone in my experience, and supported. To someone in my situation who was considering SoulUp, I’d simply say: DO IT
