Friends, let’s connect!


“A kind gesture can reach a wound that only compassion can heal.” 
― Steve Maraboli, Life, the Truth, and Being Free

Our pains can be dismissed and misunderstood. Our pains can feel like they are monsters eating us alive. Our pains can wreck havoc in our daily lives, ruin plans, and destroy dreams. Our pains can feel like they are in control and that we are a burden. Our pains can make us feel isolated. Our pains can steal our hope and take us to the darkest of places.

I’ve been there, lived this pain path, and I get it, Friends. I know what it feels like to want to live, not just exist. It is possible, in spite of our pain, but it is hard work. And it begins with support and sharing.

Do you spend your days living with chronic pain? I desire to connect with You. We each travel our own journey, but life is about relationships. Connections. I believe that with my everything. Friends, allow me to be your pain partner in caring, in understanding, in being someone who will not dismiss you, and in sharing our human condition.

I see you. I’m extending my Biker’s Wave. Care to wave back?

This can be an overwhelming question, I realize. How do you begin to distill years of pain and journey? Share whatever, however you feel led. As much or as little. I respond to every single pain partner who connects with me. Prompts: How long have you been enduring pain? Describe your pain? On a scale of 1-10, ten being the worst, how would you rate your pain? Do you know what is causing your pain? How does your pain impact your quality of life? Do you feel you have support and understanding of your situation? What are you doing today to manage your pain? What is the one piece of advise you would give to someone enduring chronic pain? What is the one thing you wish folks without chronic pain could understand?
