The International Pain Foundation Barby Ingle pt 2
I have a very important topic for you today…and one that is very near and close to my heart…one which affects me as well as millions of people each and every day – and that is how to cope with chronic pain…be it from injury, as in my case, or from hereditary diseases or any number of a myriad of causes…one which many people have a hard time understanding – even very close family members…
On the line with us today is Barby Ingle from the International Pain Foundation…Barby is a former model and professional cheerleader. She seemed to have it all. And then things changed. Her life become totally focused on survival. Chronic pain ravaged her body. Doctors had no clue as to why.
They stuck, prodded, probed and examined numerous times. All sorts of test (and can I relate to that). Then, one day, Barby decided enough was enough and SHE became her own “Chief of Staff” for her medical team. And I will let her explain that as we get into the interview.
Barby has been on our program a few times in the past and the information she shares blessed so many of our listeners, I’m sure it will do the same today as well. She is also the author of several books dealing with this issue, such as “From Wheels to Heals,” which is the first one I read, getting ready for our first interview back in 2018! Praise God!
This is part two of what turned out to be a great, two part interview!
Your foundation helps people from all over the world find support services and resources to help their conditions. Can you go over a few of the most popular services?
This next topic is a big one.
What about managing pain killers? I know the laws and medical practices concerning prescription pain killers have changed since the last time we talked. Is it still a major issue?
This is the type of situation where your foundation could provide the resources to help someone in a situation similar to what I went through (and, I was reading articles, etc. from your website while going this ordeal myself).
Pastor Bob shares on how he continued to be the “Chief Medical Officer of his own body.”
Barby, it’s amazing what you can do when you make up your own mind, put your foot down and tell the doctor that “this is the way it is going to be.”
Barby, if something we said sparked a word of enlightenment to one of our listeners and they had an “ah-ha” moment saying, “That’s just like me!” How can they get in touch with theInternational Pain Foundation?
If someone wanted to get in touch with you, maybe to ask a question or do an interview such as this, how can they do that? How can someone get in touch with you?
Folks, pain is real. Pain is, well, painful. Some people do well bearing with pain. Some pain is the result of an injury and can be fixed. But there are times when pain is present and nobody knows why.
We are talking about physical pain here. But that physical pain can definitely become psychological pain very quickly. You cannot deal with this yourself.
International Pain Foundation is here to help you. They will provide you with the resources to learn more about your conditions. They will provide you with the resources to get help. They will provide you with the resources to find someone you can talk with. They are here for you.
Barby Ingle founded this great organization because these resources were not in one centralized location when she needed them the most.
They helped me. They have helped thousands of others out other there as well.
They can help you. But YOU have to reach out to them.
If you have no issues going on as we referenced today, considered sending along a note of encouragement and maybe include a donation to help them continue to offer the great resources they do. Every little bit helps.
