Mark's Pain Journey - 1 of 3

Updated: Mar 18, 2022

What is your pain journey?

Mark and Monica Neubauer’s philosophy has always been to talk about anything and everything including their pain journey. By sharing their story and Mark’s chronic pain journey with others, they hope to help people have open conversations about physical pain and emotional pain. An Open Conversation Podcast gives listeners a place to have open conversations about their pain journey or listen to other people’s pain journey and gain hope that some days can still be good in life. Starting with this story sets the stage for some of the stories that come later.

Questions to Ask Yourself During Your Pain Journey:

  • Who am I in my pain journey?

  • How do I adapt to my pain journey and still be myself?

  • How do I find new opportunities and new connections when I can no longer do the things I love.

M&M Quotables:

  • “The mental game is the hardest part of chronic pain.”

  • “When you can sleep, you can handle a lot. When you are not sleeping, everything is out of proportion.”

  • “Physical pain, emotional pain, and spiritual journey are all intertwined.”

  • ‘During your pain journey in the periods when you feel better, work to compartmentalize the fear that something is going to happen to your health so that you can enjoy the health you are having now.”

  • “Don't let pain define your life.”
