Hi Ya Chutzie,
I'm sorry that your pain levels are up.......mine too unfortunately. Seems to happen with most of the weather changes for me too....We had our first snow fall, not much really but enough to make me miserable.
Some of my favorite things.......
The smell of a newborn baby's hair
Cuddling with my kids
Listening to my little one tell me that I am the most beautifulest mommy ever....LOL He lies but what can I say???
Motorcycle rides ( can't do those anymore but I can remember them)
the smell of the earth after a nice rain
a good cartoon
my cat on my lap
Holding hands or just cuddling with my husband
a ride to nowhere with my family

On going back pain and neuropathic pain, failed back surgery, consult for scs, decided not to do that at this point.
Adhesive Arachnoiditis also......just what I didn't need..9/08- adding bilateral ulnar neuropathy with severe compression to the mix. They want me to see a surgeon for ulnar nerve surgery, but I'm not biting.
I've seen enough surgeons over the last few years.
