Do You Live in Australia? Got Pain?

Check out the Pain is Not Invisible Project of Australia! It’s sponsored by the Chronic Pain Australia Association which incorporated in 2006.

It’s estimated about 1 in 5 Australians live with chronic pain.

If you are one of them, you can register if you deal with chronic pain.

Very cool! Wish we had this in the USA.
