Anyone else in school or have been in school with chronic pain? I’m in grad school and I’m just feeling overwhelmed with that on top of what feels like a whole other degree of chronic pain. Any tips?

      Omg saaaaame! I’m in grad school and doing practicum and dealing with chronic pain on top of everything has been a lot! Always open to chat and commiserate lol. But definitely speak with professors about extensions and see if you have a disability services at your school that can verify your right to extensions and exceptions to certain things

      Me too. I have to go up three flights of stairs to get to my first class, I have horrible joint problems and don’t have an elevator pass so I am in pain all day just from that. It has always helped to speak to the dean or principal or whatever and tell them. I really enjoyed online school because I don’t have to walk much.

        @hrvey I consistently take the elevator no matter the looks I get of “appearing normal”
