CatchMyPain Community and Pain Diary App to manage chronic illness

Hi, Newbie here

Hi everyone. Just trying to figure out how to use this app to track my pain and to connect with people who understand what I'm going through.

A couple of questions: are we supposed to be able to see people's profiles? If so, how much is shown?
When entering pain, do you make entries for each pain area seperately ? Or all of them at the same time and use the worst pain for the pain scale?
Thanks for any help you can give☺

Hello mig... 🌹
So nice to meet u hunni πŸ€—
Welcome to the community 🌷

If u click on my🐫 name it should take u to my porofile page... u can see πŸͺmy picture and a 🐫small bio... and then a list of threads i have posted in. 🐴

Each day u can login... and use the diary to log ur mood out of 5...🐴 and use the sliders to log pain intensity & fatigue & stress levels.πŸ€— These are out of 10... but only sliders to move so u cannot be influenced by the numbers.✌ Then there is a picture of a body that u can plot ur pain areas all at once... pretty simple... 5 colours for intensity yellow is a 1... thru to dark red... which is a 5. 🌼And then at the bottom u have a comment box to say⚘ how ur feeling or to note a 🌹good day or bad day...🌷 then hit save... and ur done! U should be fine.🌻

Then...🐫 there are us lot! Hehe a community of peeps in the same boat... up that very same creek... and no-one brought a bloody paddle either!😲

Welcome hunni i hope u can find some peace here amongst good company 🌷🌷🌷

Hope this helps sweet-pea 🌺

Northowl, Lulabel,
Thank you for your answers. I think I get it now. I've had a migraine for the last couple of days so even things that should be obvious seem to be beyond me.
Thanks again πŸ™‚

Welcome to you both.. I can't add any more than what Lulabel already did except that I didn't bring the damn paddle either... LOL!! Looking forward to getting to know you both. {{{Hugs}}}πŸ’•πŸ™πŸ»πŸŒ»πŸ˜Š

New as well. Yesteday I tried to get the app working on my phone, but it wouldn't connect to the CMP server. Today it's doing Ok, though. So I'm testdriving it for myself and a few friends with chronic pain issues.

Welcome to all you newbies; minimig, NorthOwl, & USMCVetLady! I hope you're all settling in and finding new ways to cope with your chronic pain. I'm recuperating from surgery on Monday, so I'm keeping my post responses short. Hugs love & prayers for you all! πŸ™‚πŸ’•πŸ™πŸŒΈ
