I just want to share with you all that I've been trying a new approach with my pain management. I still take the medications, but all the other treatments/procedures have failed in helping with the pain.
I've turned my thinking around and I tell myself through out the day that "I'm getting better, my spinal cord is healed". I'm also meditating everyday. For about 20 minutes a day when the kids are off to school, or right before I go to bed on the weekends. I relax my entire body and clear my mind. Sometimes I listen to calming/relaxing music when doing this. Youtube is great for a varity of music. One of my favorites is Kyrie, Eleison - Fountain of life by Margaret Rizza.
This has by far been the best medicine. It's been helping me be at peace and it helps me deal with this pain in a much better way. I've noticed I'm happier all around. The mind is very powerful.
