Starting something new

Dear community,

As many of you already know I am the CEO and founder of this app and a chronic pain patient. After years of suffering, dozens of doctor visits and treatments, and a lot of hard work on my part, I was able to reduce my pain to a comfortable level and gain back the control over my life. I consider myself very lucky and I am dedicated to help you reduce and manage your pain as well. This app is one piece of the puzzle, but it is not enough!

Therefore, I am planning to start a blog and youtube channel on which I'd like to tell my story, share my learnings, invite doctors as guest speakers/writers, do Q&A sessions and last but not least invite you onto the "show" to share your valuable learnings with the community.

Before starting this endeavor, I would like to get your feedback on all this. I would really appreciate it if you could answer those 3 questions for me:

1. what do you think about this idea?

2. What should my first article or video be about?

3. What platform should I use? Are you all on youtube, facebook, snapchat or something else?

I am excited to read your replies.

Goodnight to all of you (it is after midnight here in Switzerland)

Fabulous idea Daniel! 😊

I think introduce urself, ur story...
and how this tool can help, & the advantages of community support.

And then perhapsπŸ“„ an article about chronic illness and how to make small changes to cope.🐴

With exerts from the threads on the app... real people - real pain - real coping mechanisms 🐫

The latest research in pain management and an introduction to the people whom make up 'the pain team' 🐴

I think youtube is the way to go... its easy to link to from other social media and i think u will reach a bigger www audience.

Lol can i have a job πŸ˜‰

Exciting stuff πŸ’»πŸ–² good luck x

Great idea daniel.. i think education on what chronic pain is and the difference between it and acute.. i say this as many many people suprisingly have no idea.. G

I say it's a great idea, I think anything to do with chronic pain that is done by people with chronic pain is the way to go!! YouTube is probably the best platform, you'll reach a bigger audience I would say.

Ready to start relieving your pain?
