You're sick and tired of living in a DAZE, exhausted from feelings of uncertainty within yourself, with nowhere to go. You are running in quicksand. The Pandemic has amplified ALL the mental laundry that is running through your mind. Your anxiety and depression have intensified. The issues you thought had resolved have returned. You still feel helpless, ashamed, and tired of being misunderstood. You detach from others, feeling like THE MISFIT. You are in survival mode, lonely, and fearful of being judged. You wish to find a way to diminish your negative thoughts and fears. Take that first step to move forward and feel better.

People may think you are excelling on the outside but feel anxious, sad, or angry. You feel like two people live inside you, one that lashes at those you care about and one that feels guilty after. You spend your weekends trying to unwind through happy hours and dating, but once the thrill fades, you feel drained again. You may wonder if your use of alcohol, the internet, social media, or video games gets in the way of you finding your purpose and living your best life. You find injustice impedes your ability to express and truly empower yourself.

Chronic pain doesn't just hurt physically. It touches every aspect of our lives, from the personal to the professional. Our relationships, our work, our hobbies and interests, and even our basic human needs can end up on the back burner while we struggle to manage our pain symptoms. Over time, our lives feel like they're shrinking, as pain robs us of the things that matter most. It's no surprise that chronic pain sufferers end up experiencing anxiety, depression, substance use issues, and insomnia up to four times the rate of people who are pain free.
