Dr. May Caprio and Linda Cundiff will unlock some mysteries and myths around sleep. How can we get better sleep, even if we're living with chronic pain? We'll find out the answers to these questions and more on June 3, 2015 at 3pm.
True or False?
1. The more sleep I get, the healthier I'll be.
2. Waking up at night means that I'll be tired the next day.
3. Snoring is common and totally harmless.
4. It's important to always keep track of how much I sleep.
5. Pain increases the amount of time in Stage 1 light sleep.

Elizabeth M. Christy lives in Northern Virginia with her husband James, son Jimmy (5), and daughter Lucy (newborn). She is the best-selling author of the children’s book "Why Does Mommy Hurt? Helping Children Cope with having a Caregiver with Chronic Pain, Fibromyalgia, or Autoimmune Disease," and blogs on parentswithpain.com and potomacfallsmama.blogspot.ca. Additionally, she works as a Systems Integrator for TASC. In addition to basic survival, Elizabeth enjoys writing, sewing (especially in straight lines!), and reading good memoirs.
“Why Does Mommy Hurt?” is a great resource to talk to children about chronic pain and illness. On this episode, we'll discuss the guilt and shame many parents suffering from chronic pain feel about their parenting. The fact is that parents with chronic pain or illness can be just as awesome as “normal” parents when it comes to raising kids, and if you love your kids, that’s all that matters. We may not be able to walk a mile to the playground, cook a 7-course organic meal from scratch, or volunteer on a field trip to the amusement park, but that’s not what really matters. If you love your kids, you will find your own way, and your kids will know it. Also, many parents in this situation feel very alone, especially when first diagnosed. There are millions of families out there in the same situation, you are not alone, and you have support out there waiting for you!
The last thing you want to think about at the end of a long day is what you’ll be making for dinner, and your family doesn’t need another meal from a bag or a box.
In this episode, you will learn 4 ways a crockpot can be your very best friend.

By the age of 70, the average adult will have taken 600 million breaths, and for most individuals, breathing is taken for granted. But acute or chronic pain, anxiety, and even depression, can cause a disruption in the normal physiological process. When psychological factors dominate over physiological processes, breathing rate may increase (hyperventilation), and a disordered pattern of breathing can become the norm. When altered breathing patterns become habit they can contribute to health problems, including anxiety, fatigue, and chronic pain, setting up a vicious cycle of health concerns.
Christopher Gilbert, PhD, is a clinical psychologist currently associated with the Kaiser Permanente Chronic Pain Management Program, located in San Francisco, California. Dr. Gilbert has co-authored the book: Recognizing and Treating Breathing Disorders and published articles related to hyperventilation, anxiety and panic. He will discuss techniques which may be of benefit to patients, including: self-regulation of breathing and breathing re-training, and the use of bio-feedback.
