Hello, I'm Maureen Clout.
My name is Maureen and Pain Fog documents my journey from suffering with chronic, debilitating pain to living a happy, productive life in spite of pain.
After 4 years of undiagnosed unbearable pain, I was diagnosed as an incomplete paraplegic due to a rare spinal cord abnormality. Though I have a world-class team of neurosurgeons on my case, living with pain and disability is a journey that comes down to ones own perseverance.
After 20 years of trial and error I am ready to share what I’ve learned. Not everything will work for everyone, but let's figure it out together.
I am a person living with pain, not a medical professional. The posts on this blog reflect my personal experiences with pain and should not be taken as medical advice.With that being said, I hope to inspire pain suffers everywhere to take control of their lives and achieve happiness.
