Welcome to the forum pretty! I do hope that you will hang around awhile and join us in some of our silly things that we try to do so that we can forget our pain for a time. I have found this forum quite useful and filled with great people that will help you get through the day. I am so sorry that you have to join us in chronic pain and do hope you find some relief from your "pain Monster nightmare".
Anyway been dealing with my Pain for the last 8 years and I know that my life will never be the same as it was before this hit me between the eyes. It's terrible that our forum seems to be growing as more and more people are stricken with such a horrible illness that not one doctor can find a cure for. I have FBS....DJD.......CP and Arthritis in both my lower back and my knees. I'm 44 years old and have two wonderful boys (26 and 22). Both are very supportive with my illness and I love them very much for that. I also have a husband of almost 12 years that is very supportive and knows what it is like to go through such horrible pain. He takes me to my appts. listens to the docs tell me what treatments are working....takes very good care of me.....cooks for me......cleans the house and helps me in every way that he can to ease my days of horrible pain.
Anyway enough about
me. Tell us more about
you? Where do you hail from? Do you have a good supportive family? and all the other pertinent questions that we want to know
Yours in CP
