Reading for Pain Awareness Month

As well as doing fun posts on peach pie and cherry turnovers or ice cream cones, I also discuss a lot of less-comfortable topics like human trafficking, abuse, mental illness, and so on. This is one of the less pleasant topics — chronic pain.

The US observes in September, initially organized by The American Chronic Pain Association. Canada observes National Pain Awareness Week in November and The Canadian Pain Task Force has a lot of good resources on their website. Since my book on chronic pain is about a child/teen, I would especially like to spotlight these resources for parents/teachers and kids.
