This patient attended the pain clinic for 3 sessions then completed the Persistent Pain Programme.
I enrolled on the course called the Persistent Pain Programme, aimed at the control of the medical problems I suffer from, which are COPD and vascular problems of the lower back. Attending the course showed me I was not the only one with problems. They also showed that by using simple ACTION PLANS I could get on and self-manage my pain. I now use a system of timed exercise programmes 3 times a week and I find I am more focused and in control of my pain not the other way around.
This makes me feel I have achieved a great deal over the last couple of weeks and can now get on with my life with a more positive outlook.
