Hi - I'm so sorry to hear about the many problems and pain you've all been suffering through. I've been dealing with chronic back pain for several years. I've also been trying to deal with an ongoing spinal fluid leak which causes constant headaches & other issues from an epidural injection gone bad for the past year. Recently, the rheumatologist diagnosed me with reactive arthritis & fibromyalgia. Between the pain & fatigue, I'm just about wiped. However, I do work with a wonderful pain doc & pain therapist who help to keep me sane. One of the things I've learned is eat right , exercise (even if it's just some light yoga, stretching, or a walk down the block), and get plenty of rest. If you need extra sleep than sleep. If you need to scream or cry than get it out. Don't be a martyr because it will only make you feel worse and don't worry about people who don't understand. Listen to your body and be good to yourself. Also, try to be happy. I know it's hard when you have such a cross to bear but you only get one life and it's precious...no matter what hand you're dealt. Surround yourself with positive things: people, pets, art, music, whatever makes you happy. Try to find joy in your life...it makes the load a little lighter to bear. Peace & love to you all
