Who is this website for?

This website is first and foremost meant for the kids going through chronic pain. I hope to be an inspiration and a helpful voice when things get tough.

This is also for the parents, because I know it's hard for you to see your children going through something as difficult as this. Just be supportive and provide your child with the resources they need to get better.

My website is also meant for doctors. I want to bring to light the issue of chronic pain and how most doctors don't consider it a serious illness. This will hopefully open their eyes and show them that chronic pain is real, and hopefully they will be able to help more kids now that they normally wouldn't have.

If, after reading this, you are interested in learning more about my struggle with chronic pain, my book,Vienna's Waiting, offers an extended look at the journey.

All proceeds go to Teen Pain Help Foundation, to help other kids suffering from chronic pain.

PAIN: An Owner's Manual
by Georgia Huston

My latest book, PAIN: An Owner's Manual, is a revealing series of conversations with pain sufferers of all ages and some of the professionals and therapists that helped me through my pain nightmare.

We discuss living with pain, as well as coping strategies and therapeutic paths to health.

A portion of all proceeds from this book will go to the Teen Pain Help Foundation.

The reason I made this website is to make kids going through chronic pain feel less alone. I am a teenage girl who lost everything to chronic pain and had to work my butt off to get it all back.

 

My name is Georgia and welcome to my website. This site is all about kids and teens living with chronic pain. It is more common than you would think, but not always properly diagnosed. My hope for this website is to share my experiences and to inspire kids to get help and turn their lives around. This website provides personal stories, other helpful resources, explanations of what pain is, therapies and treatments, and tips that will help you get through this.

I will have illustrations like the one above throughout this website. Every piece of art on this website I personally made, by myself, during this awful period of pain.

Art became my main tool in healing. Some of it is from art therapy, which are assignments from a therapist trying to understand what I am going through and trying to relate to me. Others, I did on my own when I was in distress.

It will hopefully take you on a journey in itself as it illustrates my thoughts and feelings.


Also, you will find much of the art shown here in a traveling art show, most recently displayed at The Gallery at Ivey's Emporium in Alpine, Texas.

The fully annotated art show is available for display at other suitable venues.
