    A Pain in the Mind

    Wednesday 3 March at 7pm-8pm

    Sleep is a built-in ability that usually doesn’t take much effort at all. After all, how simple can it be to sleep? You just close your eyes, relax and get taken away to your dreams. But for many people living with chronic pain, sleeping isn’t as easy as that.
