Dear Fellow Chronic Pain and Mental Health Warriors,
If you suffer from chronic pain and associated feelings of hopelessness, loneliness,
and depression, I feel for you, because I’ve been there myself.
Chronic pain can result in conditions including:
* chronic fatigue
* migraine headaches
* irritable bowel
* sensitivity to light, touch, and sound
These diseases are real and often devastating, but there’s HOPE!
Research shows we can decrease the symptoms of these painful conditions by rewiring
our neural pathways through reading, writing, and sharing our experiences.
This process is EMOTIVE BIBLIOTHERAPY and my system is STORIESRx.
It changed my life, and it can help you, too.
Please sign up for my soon-to-be-released podcast, Heal Me! where we discuss our stories for better brain health.

Jen's Memoir Stories
Here, the narrator describes how her father was emotionally triggered by a young runaway colt that reminded him of the identical twin brother who had died many years earlier in a tragic car crash. As a result, the narrator learns her father has deep emotional scars that she can only imagine.
My Mission & Vision
My MISSION is to create a healing environment and writing framework for chronic pain sufferers. To this end, we share our deep life stories with dignity, compassion, understanding, and beauty. Then, we release these stories with kindness and gratitude, -and with our newfound perspective, create productive and healthy new stories that benefit all life.
My VISION is to build a better present and future for ourselves, our families, communities, and the world.
