I know that pain affects every single area of life and makes many things impossible. I'm a mom trying to encourage my 18-year-old son to function the best he can and move through life in the most positive way possible. I thought I'd start this post in the hopes that all of us can hear from others who have found ways (big and small) to move forward. So...any stories about positive coping out there??? Please post!!!
BTW - my son used to play baseball and wanted to play in college (that dream ended with his back injury) but just started a job at a skeet shooting range (he can shoot really, really well). I'm hoping that he can channel at least some of his competitive/athletic energy and drive into the shooting. Crossing my fingers!
