Neos Kosmos Chronic Pain: the Treacherous Disease that Steals the Lives of Thousands

(Excerpt from Neos Kosmos feature story by

Πρόκειται για μια ψηφιακή πλατφόρμα καταγραφής του ατομικού ιστορικού των πασχόντων από χρόνιο πόνο έτσι ώστε να μην χρειάζεται κάθε φορά που επισκέπτονται τους διάφορους ειδικούς να επαναλαμβάνουν τις ίδιες πληροφορίες ξανά και ξανά κάτι που είναι τρομερά ψυχοφθόρο για τους ίδιους, όπως μας διαβεβαιώνει η Σούλα εξηγώντας μας πώς ξεκίνησε η ιδέα του Pain train.

It is a digital recording platform for chronic pain sufferers’ personal history so that the person does not have to repeat the same information. It is traumatic, Soula assures us this is where the idea of ​​PainTrain began.

«Έχω ασχοληθεί πολύ με την υπεράσπιση των ατόμων που υποφέρουν από χρόνιο πόνο κυρίως επειδή δεν ήθελα κανείς να αισθανθεί τόσο χαμένος όσο εγώ όταν μπήκα σε αυτόν τον κόσμο του πόνου.

“I have been very involved in defending people who suffer from chronic pain mainly because I did not want anyone to feel as lost as I did when I entered this world.
