Research confirms chronic illness and pain are a huge challenge for couples to navigate. A partner experiencing chronic pain can decline relationship satisfaction, increase home-life stressors, and can put both partners at risk of developing mental health problems. Yikes!
But... I'll share with you a little secret...
Through a small number of practical, low energy changes, couples can escape survival mode and find a new, exciting normal. It is within your power to have a great relationship - in fact, a remarkable one, in spite of chronic pain or chronic illness.
The struggle to maintain joy and a fulfilling relationship while coping with chronic illness and pain is a serious problem for millions of people today. Australian Author, Speaker, and co-founder of mental health clinics, Karra Eloff has drawn on academic research and her own pursuit of joy in spite of chronic pain to develop this trailblazing, compassionate, low-energy and practical path to a remarkable new normal, delivering much-needed solutions to couples living with one partner’s chronic pain.
We all have this idea of what we hope our life & relationship with our partner is going to look like. We do all we can to direct our path that way but sometimes, chronic illness and pain has other plans.
When fatigue, pain and general stress from a health condition starts to affect your relationship, couples and individual partners need practical, low-energy steps to instantly inject joy & passion into their relationship in spite of chronic pain. And oh my... it is possible!
I'm dedicated to helping you experience a more joyful and passion-filled relationship in spite of chronic pain!
