President’s Reflections – May 2023   

commentNo Comments

The last month since being elected as President has been extreme, to say the least. I’m amazed at how much work there is to be done. I’m also amazed at how much work others do to help our organisation. It’s been a little bit frantic and sometimes overwhelming however, it’s been rewarding. I have learnt to self-manage rather swiftly whilst maintaining a balance between family commitments and maintaining a work relationship between the two passions in my life. Family and Trigeminal Neuralgia with a lot of self-care along the way. 

I’m also excited to say that I undertook a rather documented role with my Droctor.   I am receiving a treatment called Low level Light Therapy, which hasn’t been documented for Trigeminal Neuralgia and so I became the specimen in my Dr’s. journey, and mine I might add. 

 I can say that after two treatments of LLLT I am pain free. Something I never thought was possible however, clinging tightly onto HOPE, I appear to be getting relief from my pain.

This is something that my Doctor and I embarked upon, each making documented journal entries along the way. 

This may be something that we’ve touched upon that others don’t know yet. This has been one of the most rewarding months. This illness has made me humble; it’s shown me what IS important in life. My family deserves a medal for being by my side every step of the way. 

“If we have hope, we have everything.” 

I look forward to working with and providing help and Hope to so many more. 

Watch this space.
