Going it alone

Going it alone

Living with a long-term health condition, including persistent pain and going it alone as I found out, can be tricky and you may need some help at times. Where do you get help from? Well, help and support can come from your family, friends, healthcare teams, work colleagues and the Self-Management. It’s important to get the right support in place. Make sure members of your healthcare professional team are experts or familiar with the self-management concept.
