After 14 years in pain... i have learned to finally accept that my pain will always be here...and that the best thing to do... is to stop fearing that... and to accept and adapt to it! I will never give up the fight to do what i can to cope with it... but its never going to totally be gone! All i can hope for, is a good day... with the courage to believe, i can get thru this & i will survive. Its taken many years of practice tho ;)

Gentle hugs x

I agree there is no magic pill so we can only accept live and adapt. Emphisis on live and acceptance whoch is hard but huge. GX

I hear you. My relatives are all upset, "You're taking too many pills!" And I don't like it. But they're for the Sx of many Dx. Every day I wonder what problems the pills will cause. But there is no "day" without them. I guess @groggy is right, we have to accept it for now. Do our best with any alternative meds that help. And hope for, lobby for, support if we can- those who work toward, a cure.
With you in spirit my friend. {{Hugs}}

Dealing with spine pain since the 90's and having gained good control of it, I would have said yes. In fact I was living a life of minimal pain, with only random flare ups in my spine, until fibro started in 2007. Then the tumor jumped on board, followed by one dx after another, all chronic pain centered. Now after 6 years I know better than to even dream I will ever be off my meds permanently. I was off my allergy & asthma meds for only 4 years, and now I'm on more than beforere. My family is shocked at the various meds I have, either using daily or on a PRN basis, just to try and manage the pain to live a comfortable life now. No, chronic pain is a permanent part of life, and the meds are just a necessary evil. I'm sorry that isn't an upbeat message you probably don't want to hear. My bad. 😔

Thank you flappys I appreciate the straight forward and kind nature of it. It's fun y inwas about to post another topic basically about this same thing. Ha..quess I'm a broken record. I was attempting to remember a day when I was not in pain and felt happy and excited about life. I csnt seem to recall it. Today is a hard day. Been moving a lot my dad's bday is tomorrow so I'm helping mom with cakes and meals.
I feel I've been slipping a d crying a lot lately. Really need a rest. I think I messed up at PT I started taking about how hard a time I'm having with my Setback's I try to not talk about my feelings there. But now they want me in for a reevaluation plus they want to monitor me.closer now thst I'm on chemo due to the muscle and bone loss associated with this med. Me andy big mouth. The therapist talked to me about the nessecity of small steps when shooting for a big goal and I have to work within the limits i have. Which you all know is a big issue i have..lol

Hang in there.....you have a ton going on. I know your hearing date is getting close and you are feeling the stress from that too. Try to believe it will eventually work out. It is alright to accept pain as a reality but do not give up having hope for the good days. PM me if you want to talk.

I appreciate all your comments a d support. LMB yes my hear is next Thursday and I'm a ball.of nerves . This new treatment is tossing me around like I owe it money and I don't what way is up. I'm so hoping for a really big calm in this storm. I mentioned this feeling I have to my PT and I'm not sure if that was a good idea now. Because they have me coming in for a reevaluation next week and I just had one week before last. But I'm working on truely accepting that this is my life and nor just saying I accept it. It really is a process.
