“Cake” starring Jennifer Aniston as Claire, a member of a support group for people with chronic pain.
No charge. Discussion to follow on the topic of :TMJ and dealing with chronic pain.
Location: Dufferin Clark Library 1441 Clark Avenue at Dufferin, Vaughan.
For further information email mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org I am hoping that our members and others who suffer from TMJ will attend this movie and the discussion afterwards.
Chronic pain is something I have to deal with and it is good to confer with others to find out alternatives to coping. Some days are worse than others. We search for the cause-is it the weather? Did I eat something that was difficult to chew?
With various resources , some of us reach a new normal that we can cope with on a daily basis, but then the tooth or head pain or face pressure rears its ugly head and we have to dip into our bag for when its bad. Right now I have tooth,nose and cheek pressure. It is going to be a bad night. On top of these, my teeth constantly scrape together.
This things can include: physio, compasses, medication, etc. Many of these saving graces also have side effects.
O what to do.
Let’s see the movie and talk afterwards. Although the film recounts the story of a support group’s member attempting suicide, our discuss need not be macabre.
Please come see the film and talk afterwards about what you do to cope.
