3) Existing Pain Diaries--This can help give you some ideas about starting your own pain diary. Your Pain Diary can be set up on the GROUP OR PAGE. Your choice.

Use your pain diary as a safe place for you to drop off all your negativity each day. Then you are free to face your life and your challenges feeling lighter and more positive. You might choose to make your diary like a journal and post your daily life. Make your pain diary what you need and want. Anything that can help you express your pain in a comfortable way, works for you and is healthy.
I believe in leading by example.  Here is the link to my unabridged Pain Diary called Liz's Daily Diary. Never been shy and happy to answer any questions.

4) Pain Sufferers Speaks is ALL about "Pain Connections" and sharing information. Introduce yourself on any Showcase and tell your story or whatever info you want others to know about you. Than others can find you. Meeting someone that shares your condition(s) or your symptoms, will help to fight the natural tendency we all have to isolate ourselves while we are in pain.

If you feel more comfortable, post on the wall of the GROUP or PAGE or chat with me on TWITTER. If this is not the right time to come forward, than wait. You can enjoy all that Pain Sufferers Speak has to offer without saying a single word. Look around and post comments, opinions, upload a photo or link, start a pain diary, read another person's diary or story, upload a video, set up a private chat with a friend (request the login info anytime), set up an event and invite anyone you wish, and more. It is my wish that "connections" happen for you on Pain Sufferers Speak GROUP and PAGE and TWITTER and that you have access to LOADS of organized health information on any topic you suggest for FREE.

Contact me ANYTIME with ANY SUGGESTIONS!! Your suggestions make our community better!!! I can take CRITICISM, too. So no worries either way.

Enjoy Pain Sufferers Speak Global Community!!

Liz : )
