Why am I writing this website and blog?
I have travelled a difficult journey with both back pain and sciatica (neuropathic pain), following an injury in 2008. In this website and blog I share my thoughts on understanding pain, self-managing pain and of living and working well with pain.
Through my lived experience of persistent pain, and my professional and volunteer experience working both with people with persistent pain and with healthcare professionals, I hope to help ‘bridge the gap’ between patients and healthcare professionals.
I hope to provide insights and information that may be helpful to both healthcare professionals and to people with persistent pain.
