Painiac the Podcast
Painiac, the first podcast about mindfully living with chronic pain, is a free resource for people living with chronic pain or illness. Painiac is for people living with chronic pain and the awesome people who love them. We also explore what it means to live with various types of pain whether it be emotional, mental, or physical, and we share inspiring stories of other painiacs who are learning to live well even when life hurts. With host Shelly Jackson Buffington, listeners learn about topics such as managing expectations, asking for help, working with limitations, talking with your doctor, confidence, and self-care. Painiac features conversations with inspiring people across the globe who live with pain and thrive in spite of it. In each episode, Shelly shares simple and practical tools to help people reframe their relationship with pain and other challenging life experiences.
