Welcome back to all those who patronized “Hammer Time with Nikki and Kate,” and welcome to all of our new “Hear Me Roar” listeners!
After PT this morning, Kate decided to record a bonus episode of the new podcast, focusing on the issue of chronic pain.
This mini-episode focuses on how those with chronic pain have to make a conscious, daily effort to not only cope with their pain, but to not allow their struggles to affect their relationships with others in their life.
Kate spoke with a fellow chronic pain patient while at physical therapy, and afterwards, remembered how much she’d been looking forward to finding a chronic support group to attend in Rhode Island.
Unfortunately, Kate’s search for such a group earlier this year yielded zero results, so it got her thinking–should she create one herself? Would others benefit from sharing their personal struggles either dealing with chronic pain, or being the loved one or friend of someone with chronic pain?
We’d love to know your thoughts!
We’d also love to continue receiving your feedback as to past episodes, as well as suggestions for upcoming episodes. Feel free to hit us up via social media, or by sending us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
And stay tune next week for our next full episode, “Female Business Owners: The Benefits, Pitfalls and Struggles Women Face When Running Their Own Business.”
The episode will feature the podcast’s very first guest, Angie Bonin, of Angelina Rose Photography!
’Til next week, dear listeners!
P.S. Even if you’re experiencing chronic pain, at least your back probably doesn’t look like this! Haha!
