My heart really goes out to you. I cannot fathom being totally disabled, especially at such young ages. I feel as though that is the road I am on and it really scares me when I think about
it (I normally try not to!). PM is huge. At this point no meds have helped so I have weekly massage therapy, physical therapy and acupuncture. Have tried laser and injections many times but to no avail. No surgeons will operate on me which is understandable. It seems as though I have deteriorated rapidly these past two weeks somehow! It makes me nervous.
It is amazing how we can still find joy and fulfillment in our lives! Although I have all sorts of ghastly pain I still would not trade my life for another (though I would love to be healthy). CP has taught me so much about
myself, my limitations and others. All this lying down (not good for me, I know, but at times it is all that can be done) has really enabled me to learn more about
many different topics through my love of books. My home is like a library!
Please take care, all.
