STOMP structuring your own management of pain

My pain Dr at the Swedish pain and headache center gave me the above named little book which is available free on their website at www.swedish.org/STOMP. It has a lot of information including recommended books and websites. I have only browsed it so far, just got it yesterday, but wanted to share because it covers all kinds of information.

Thanks for the link Shammagren! I went to the site and downloaded the book. I have just started looking at it... The more info the better, right?

Yes Horns no one ever complained that they were over informed. Being overwhelmed when searching a topic on the internet this is a step in the right direction. Free is always a good price.

For sure! I was recommended "Full Catastrophe Living" by my psychologist. I'm having a horrible time reading it and I keep hearing how wonderful it is! Maybe I'll give it a shot again today. Thanks

Shammegren, thank you so very much for sharing this information. I'm going to use the link and get the book for myself. I think the more information we can arm ourselves with, the more proactive we can be in our care.

I always say if I learn 1 thing new it is worth it. Even more true now that I am dealing with pain and exhaustion. For me the 2 rest periods a day is helping. I don't feel so completely exhausted or brain fogged out. Now if I could just remember where I read that. ( :
