In the upcoming GPADD18 conference, Soula will draw on her communication skills as well as her 11 year patient experience and talk about chronic pain’s perception, and also present her pain management resources.

Using her personal chronic pain experience and her creative skills as an artist and graphic designer, Soula created where she documents her experience and collates her findings about the condition.

Soula has come to realise that the key to living with ― and overcoming ―  chronic pain is accepting it and taking responsibility for its management. She also found that having to retell and update her story to a range of professionals was time consuming, tedious, and often traumatic and so founded PainTrain – My Health Summary.
