In This Issue:

  1. The danger of wellness culture and how some people with chronic illness fall into the trap of promoting or selling it, even though their intentions may be good.
  2. Medical gaslighting goes beyond just words; the unspoken communication between doctor and patient that often goes recorded in medical records.
  3. When depression weighs you down such that you can’t eat, work or think.
  4. People with chronic illness have much wisdom to share, but it is an often untapped resource when other patients could potentially benefit from it. And how Alike Health is striving towards this vision.
  5. Pain is a whole mind and body issue and affects not just the sufferer, but the people around them, too.
  6. Coping and pain management strategies from people with chronic conditions who have taken the COVID-19 vaccine.
  7. Meditation as a daily practice and coping tool, and using it to conteract poor sleep and chronic fatigue.
  8. “Being brave isn’t the absence of fear, but having that fear and finding your way through it” – and how one chronic illness person finds hope in that.
  9. When you accept the emotional turmoil that comes along with chronic pain as a normal human experience, it can enable you to focus more on pain management strategies rather than be fixated on negative thoughts.
  10. A new self-healing meditation for chronic pain, using techniques from Sarah Shockley’s book, ‘The Pain Companion’.
