    The pain scale can be one of the most annoying questions you ever get at the doctors office, especially when you have chronic pain. What do those numbers mean when you are NEVER at a zero?
    Watch and listen along as I share my strategy to use the pain scale to better communicate with my healthcare team and be more consistent with what the numbers mean.

    I’ve noticed a shift in how people do New Year’s Resolutions over the last decade. It seems that now people either have given up on the concept entirely or they have shifted to a more balanced way of reflecting and setting goals.
