Surviving vs Thriving with Pain, with Claudine Adlington


For some of us, pain is a constant unwanted companion in our journey through life. As individuals living with pain, we have a burden to carry and a responsibility to self-care. It’s a constant balancing act we try to manage in order to be there for our loved ones and live the best version of ourselves. Somedays it’s enough to survive, other days we CAN thrive. This talk will provide ideas and options around how to balance this reality and what can be possible. Claudine will discuss what has been successful for the Alberta Talks Pain community as well as Claudine’s own personal journey with pain.
