Hi Patti,

I have been thinking of you. I just bought a homeopathy "kit" from Boiron for stress yesterday. I am very excited to try it & it made me think of you, and realize that it has been a week or two since I have seen you post! I hope all is well, your pain is under control, and you have a very happy Easter. Still no luck with the homeopathics yet, but I was expecting that, it has only been 3 wks. I'll talk to my doc Monday & he'll change one thing or another. Drop us a line & let us know you are alright, if you have a chance!

Hi Skeye,

Thanks for thinking of me!  I have not been posting lately, the last month has been a challenge for me.  2 weeks ago I was introduced to a new treatment, low dose Naltrexone.  This medication is used to treat drug/alcohol addiction at the High 50 mg. dosage.  Studies have been done at Low Dose 1-3mg. and it is proven to help Crohns, Fibromyalgia and PAIN.  My old Boss the M.D. Homeopath, told me about it and with my PM Dr. we decided to try it.  I'm not sure if it is working,  I have been able to cut my PM by 1 pill.  The only side effect I've had is severe fatigue from 2pm on.  Normally in the morning it takes 2 hours for me to be able to move, since the 3rd day its a mere 30 minutes.  They told me it would take 2-3 weeks to know if it is working, I'm not sure if working means totally eliminating PM or cutting it down as I am. 

When you start Homeopathic treatment, think of it as peeling an onion....layer by layer you're working through lots of stored data.  Every event in you life has built the onion, now the Homeopathics are working to eliminate the memories, layer by layer.  I always used to tell my patients to make a list of all your symptoms no matter how small, put the list in a safe place.....60-120 days from now pull the list out and you will see how many improvements have occured.  Sometimes, our problems are soooo big that we don't notice the little things that have gotten better.

I'll be posting soon and THANKS for thinking of me!!

Hi Patti,

What a wonderful idea about the list! I am going to do that tonight! I keep a personal journal just about my CP & associated things (separate from my pain journal) -- my other way of venting, as well as documenting the process. I've never kept a journal before, but I started it this fall & it has really helped. I write in it any time I am upset, frustrated, in unthinkable amounts of pain, or something significant happens. I have made lists in it of things that I wanted to accomplish with both my antidepressants & pain medication (unfortunately I'm about 0 for 0), so why no create a list for this too?! Brilliant! I just spoke with my MD homeopath today & he is going to switch my remedy. I know it will take time, but I am anxious. I'm trying to keep my faith strong, because if this doesn't work, I may be looking at heading down a road that I don't want to take, treatment wise.

I am so relieved to hear that you are okay. It sounds like, even though you are not sure that the new med is helping overall, it is allowing you a little more mobility and a little better relief at night. That's something! Although the fatigue is not pleasant! Hopefully it will continue to help more as you stay on it longer!

hugs,
Skeye

Hi Char, Skeye and PA, thanks for your thoughts and hugz!!  I am very hopeful, I did speak with the Compounding Pharmacist today and she is very very happy with my results so far.  She said even if I am unable to d/c the PM totally, my improvements are promising and may get better as I stay on the LDN!  Wouldn't that be wonderful....I have been dealing with PAIN since the fusion in 2000, so I think I would actually do a cybersomersault (lol) if more relief is headed my way.

Skeye I also journal, noone understands how powerful a tool this is unless they actually journal as well.  I am so glad your MD H is changing your remedy, keep him informed because as you peel the onion, sometimes you need a different remedy to pull you through that layer.  It takes time and you are very realistic in your expectations.  Keep BELIEVING!  Have you read You can Heal your life by Louise Hay or Healing with the Angels by Doreen Virtue?  Both of these will help you keep your faith strong!

Sending warm hugs and lots of love to all of you!

XXOO
Patti

Hi Patti,

What great news! I have a good feeling that you are headed in the right direction!

You are right about the power of journaling. I never understood how beneficial it could be until I started myself. I don't write in it ever day, sometimes I go a couple of weeks in between writings, but it is always there when I need it! I made my list out tonight, like you suggested. It will be a good reference. Sometimes, you have so much going on that it is hard to keep everything straight! That's why I like keeping a daily pain journal too. I really only keep record of my pain level throughout the day & relative to the times I take my meds, but it has been very useful for both me & my doctor (although things have been so hectic the last month, that I haven't been consistent like I always am. I've probably neglected about 3 wks. Not good. I really need to start it up again, especially now that I am starting to taper down off the dilaudid).

I believe that I have Heal Your Life by Louise Hay. I'm almost 100% positive that I do. I think I even have a work book & a video that go along with it as well! My mother got me a bunch of spiritual healing/"self-help" books about a year ago. It was a nice thought, but I haven't had time to read any of them! I miss reading so much! I have hardly read anything for fun since the injury, going on 2 1/2 years ago, because it is just too hard & painful. I barely get through the everyday reading I have to do for school. It is such a shame because I LOVE to read. I have gotten some books on tape/audiobook, but I haven't had time to listen to them either! But most of the ones I want to read aren't on tape. shakehead I have two huge stacks of books in my room with sticky notes on them that say "READ US!" because I desperately want to read them, but I haven't been able to yet. Hopefully when the semester finishes in another 4 wks I'll be able to do a little fun reading. I'd be happy if I could just read 2 books over the entire summer. Make that one! I just want to read!

Skeye,

I LOVE to read too!  Same thing on this end, I have a stack screaming at me lol.  I had the you can heal your life book for 2 years before I finally read it, I did it in spurts, it makes total sense.  Healing with the Angels was very powerful for me, this has been my salvation.  I have this on CD, truly use the affirmations and communicate daily as directed in the book!  My belief is strong and my life has changed because of it!!  My problem with reading is body mechanics, sitting with a book on my lap wears out the neck quickly, if I lay down to read I inevitably fall asleep.  So, I usually end up using a pillow on my lap which does help, my concentration level is short due to the pain!

I don't journal everyday either, but whenever I need to vent I go running for it.  I also have a wish box, that is stuffed with my requests, hopes and dreams!  There are so many positive ways to keep us going even in our worst moments!

Have a good day everybody!

XXOO
Patti

Skeye and Edt,
I believe most if not all of Louise Hayes books and such are available on audio. Check with your library, because most of this is not new.

I think her material is good, but have some problems with the premise of some things - especially since I heard comments she made about the book The Secret. I don't like the aspect of blaming people for their problems, especially if you consider problems like poverty and such, and she atually said maybe people in Dafur had drawn that to themselves. That I disagree with. But her guided imagery is very soothing.

Hi PAlady,

I agree with you, I don't agree with everything either.  Alot of what she writes does make sense!  Have you read Ask and It Is Given by Esther Hicks?  The book is overwhelming and opens a very interesting way of looking at life...I read this in small doses....I get the CD's from her Meetings....interesting concept for sure!

Hope you are doing okay!

XXOO
Patti
