Shena Collins

Welcome to our CaringBridge website.  We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place.   We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement.  Thank you for visiting.   This is Shena's story.

Shena's life was changed by a "routine" medical procedure in October of 2015.  It was a moment of waking up one day and learning that life as you knew it no longer existed and a "new normal" needed to be found.  This is her chronicle of adjusting to living life under the invisible veil of chronic pain.

This is just one journey, what one chronic-pain sufferer is doing to live the life of a well-person (that just so happens to have a pain condition), instead of living life like a person with chronic pain that just happens to feel well once in awhile.

This site is here as a nugget for whomever finds it, and it's a hope and dream that this information reaches those needing it most.  We hope to remind us all that we are in control of our pain and not controlled by our pain...and the struggle to continuously live mindfully of this.
