I have been taking Meds for over 10 years for pain. Looks like I may be on them the rest of my life. I hope not but there doesn't seem to be much new treatment for my condition. I'm a paraplegic T-8 with sever abdominal pain and spasms. I havce had every test there is but they can't find why I get such painful spasms all the time. I'm a very happy optimistic type person, but dealing with pain issues alot of the time can limit your exposure to people and having fun. I would like to hook up with some people here with similar worries and try to make some good friends that understand where I'm at and your at. Maybe we can relate and have a good time. If theres a person out there who would like to talk and maybe make friends let me know,m Maybe we can help and support each other through the hard times. Remember what Clarence said" Remember no man is a failure who has friends.
