Hi KK,

I have major spine issues both lumbar and cervical which means I don’t get a lot of good days and those that are are specialist appt,
I unfortunately take approx 18 pills a day and that is my good days, I’ve devoted a great length of time stopping a lot of those damned telemarkers.

Johnno

as long as I wake up alive I'm happy
Because it could be worse

Only 18? I wish! We are not defined by how many pills we take but what we do with our lives. I refuse to tell anyone how many I take. No one is interested in how many glasses of water I have a day so why would they be interested in the amount of pills I take? This has no bearing on who I am. The only important thing is that I am managing. Let's rise up against this!

Hi KK,

I wasn’t trying to start a peeing contest I was only trying to give you some insight into where some of us are I am lucky whereas medication can help and I don’t have allergies to them and they give me some relief ,
Peter unfortunately has problems with medication and ther are a lot of members have issues with medication , pain is a fickle beast it doesn’t give clues as to how to stop it .

We all have different ways of managing pain some use yoga ,exercise
,sleep,hot/cold packs etc .

We all tend to be supportive of each other as we can all be a bit fragile especially at this time of year so we try not to make uncomfortable remarks that could be taken in the wrong context .
Some of us do volunteer work when when we are able which helps as we can meet other people other than our family which can help .
Another way to cope is by learning from others and or do a pain management course.
We as a site try to be compassionate as there are quite a few members who are suffering from a range of issues inc. depression and PTSD .

My apologies if that is the way it came across. You are right we all manage in different way.
