September is Chronic Pain Awareness Month! Take Power Over the Source of Your Chronic Pain.

With September here, summer is quickly waving us goodbye and autumn is shouting in HELLO! This is our month. It is Chronic Pain Awareness Month. September also includes National Invisible Chronic Illness Awareness Week (Sept. 8th - 14, 2008)!

Chronic Pain Awareness Month helps to draw attention to; the importance of educating the general public of the growing number of people who suffer with chronic pain and its under treatment, to create an awareness of the opportunities and the beneficial programs that are presently available to us, spotlight the need for our congressional leaders to pass legislation to fund more research into ways to control or eliminate chronic pain and to give us an opportunity to work with grass root organizations within our communities in whatever capacity our illness allows.

Hi Eric, thanks for the visit. I thought it would be easier for me to research some of the sites than someone who is having a bad week or even month.

Your singing in the rain post is so cute. We really don't know who we are affecting do we?

Keep singing so we can too :)

Christina, thanks for mentioning the links to sites that are available to not only help inform us, but, also offer the opportunity for us to get involved.

Sometimes we want to get involved but don't have the time or energy to search the web looking for just the right organization. Hopefully, these links will help!

Thanks for your insightful comments. They are always welcome.
