no surgical option? ~X( that means chronic pain, maybe forever! :''( i have good days and bad days when handling that idea.it is a frightening idea some days that this pain is most likely forever. i mean i have had pain almost my whole life. i really would not know any other way. i don't have much hope left but i do have acceptance. this lets me move through each day with a sense of peace. sometimes it is overwhelming and my heart gets very heavy. i get tired. so it does me good to surround myself with positive images and try to stay in a "happy" frame of mind.
) i try and help others in whatever way i can. this really takes my mind off my pain. :? i use that technique alot, diversion therapy. how do you mentally handle pain with no surgical option? Jenny
