Hello fellow chronic pain people,
I happened to stumble upon this site and it motivated me to take a moment and write a brief message to share how I deal with my pain management.
A half century of pain ok. I stay away from the meds. Was addicted in the hospital and got off of it. Over three months on my back body casted back in the late 60's. Had more surgeries than most have in a life time and in my 20's. Wheelchair over two years! Told I would never walk. Anyway! We have choices. I would like to share my choice. Acupuncture, Tai Chi, Chi Gung, Meditation, Kung Fu internal systems, good sex, stay busy, ice, tens, relax, focus, visualize. I choose to make pain my teammate. There is no pain med out there that eliminates the agony unless you knock yourself out in my experience. Been there - done that - All it does is help us deal! Enough said........
Have a blessed day and good luck!!!
