Talking about a Life Lived Well: Overcoming Chronic Pain and a Misdiagnosis with Dr. Kevin J. Payne
I am honored today to have Dr. Kevin Payne on the podcast. He is a social psychologist, a speaker, a podcaster, author, and skydiver – currently with under 600 jumps under his belt.
Kevin talks about his misdiagnosis living with chronic pain. After years of struggling he was finally diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, which is what truly spurred his mission. You can find Kevin under his podcast, “Your Life Lived Well” and at yourlifelivedwell.co. Kevin is in a mission to help others and never defined by what he can’t do in life due to his diagnosis.
Kevin is a social psychologist, entrepreneur, author, podcast host, speaker, teacher, and frequent guest interview or panelist. He shares the results of his extensive research concerning how to live a quality life with chronic distress, pain, and illness. He also shares his personal exploits as a collector of experiences — even while battling Multiple Sclerosis for decades. Life is too remarkable to sit on the sidelines, even when we’ve got to get more creative about how we get in the game!
He was born and raised in the Kansas City Metro area. He can’t have too many books, is a lifelong tech geek, devoted to his animals, pretty fond of his kids, and sometimes appears as a pirate.
He also never misses a chance to jump from a perfectly good airplane.
