I just wanted to add my welcome to the group! As of late, I haven't been posting as often as I normally do, as I've been busy with work & grad school apps, as well as having a bit of a pain flare myself, so I missed welcoming you when you first joined.
I am sorry to hear that you have been going through such a bad pain flare lately! That's certainly no fun, to say the least!
I saw one of your other posts & was amazed at how much you do despite being in so much pain. You are truly amazing!
I see that you mentioned trying healing stones. I've actually tried them myself. A friend who practices animal communication & energy healing actually recommended them for one of my dogs (she is terrified of thunderstorms, and at the time we had had little luck in calming/treating her) & my mom ended up having the lady make a beautiful necklace and bracelet for me to try to help with my pain and depression. I wore them for many months, but never really noticed any change in my pain or depression.
A couple years later, I again tried medicine stones, but this time through my acupuncturist. Unfortunately, once again, there was no change. However, that's not to say that it wasn't worth trying & won't work for you. I am certainly a believer of alternative forms of medicine, and as long as it is safe & I can afford it, I am pretty much willing & eager to try anything and everything.
Just in case you are interested, this is where my necklace & bracelet came from: www.pelliscastleworks.com/home.html
