Living with Chronic Pain - the Hidden World
A Sydney Mechanics' School of Arts event
Tuesday, 9 February 2021, 12:30pm – 1:30pm AEST – free virtual event via Zoom

Dr Dawn Macintyre, author of Living with Chronic Pain: From OK to Despair and Finding My Way Back Again, joins us to share her personal experiences with chronic pain, including how she navigated through the total change to every aspect of her life, to come out the other side in one piece.

Dawn will take us through topics including: changes to sense of self, managing despair and exhaustion, financial challenges, working with insurance companies, medication challenges, relationships with family, friends and health professionals. She will also explore the importance of validation and the constant frustration when the pain is nonspecific, all consuming, changing and unpredictable.
