January Meeting - Scottish National Residential Pain Management Programme

This month two of our members who have been on the three week Residential Glasgow Course for Pain Management will give a presentation of their times on the Course. This will be followed by a Question and Answer Session after they have spoken.

There have been requests from quite a few members about the Course and we know that the Pain Clinic in Aberdeen are encouraging patients to try the Course.

So, if you want to know the ins and outs from people who have actually been through the Course and have had time to put what they have learnt into practice, then do come along, listen in and ask any questions you have.

The meetings are held in Room 14 of the Alexander Graham Bell Hub at Moray College, Moray Street, Elgin IV30 1JS

Meetings start at 1:00 pm with Guest Speakers starting around 1:30 pm.  You do not have to force yourself to stay for the whole meeting.  You are free to come and go as you please.

February Meeting

Every month we hold a meeting where you can have a good blether, moan, and share your experiences of living with chronic pain.  We try to have a Guest Speaker at all our meetings but if that is not possible then we quite happily chat among ourselves, enjoy the tea, coffee and eats (usually many home bakes) and have good fun.  You're guaranteed to feel a whole lot better after the meeting.

We hear time and time again how people are very nervous to come to the meetings but without exception, everyone who does attend feels very happy they were brave enough to step through the door and join in the fun and laughter.

Just as in the Facebook discussions, you will not be judged, investigated, or ridiculed about your life with chronic pain.  You'll soon find that all the other members have first-hand experience of difficulties like yours.  There is not a competition to see whose pain is the worst.  Everyone's pain is unique and cannot be fairly compared to others.
