Thanks! Craig's Stepmom told me that I looked the best I've ever looked since she's known me. I thought it was very sweet. I think that's because I was feeling pretty healthy and happy for once. Maks a big difference to those of us with chronic pain.
Well, seeing the pain specialist helped me more than other things. I also have a guided meditation DVD that helps some when you start to panic when the pain gets out of control. I would be glad to burn it and mail you a copy if you'd like to try it. If so, just message me your snail mail address here and I'll send it to you. As much as I hate to admit it, nothing but stronger medication worked for me. I was really hoping Physical Therapy would do the trick, or massage, but in my case that stuff didnt work.
