great reply Peter bu i can remember a time when i would not have like it so much when i was still looking for a fix it solution. I takes a while to realize that life goes on even ith CP- the funny thing is i can remember really struggling nd wondering how i would survive but since then i have other CP problems ( i fractured 3 vertabrae in a fall) and the MS etc- life is more complicaed and yet i manage better most of the time. I remember seeing charts like Grappers too and now i think they are very good but orignally i would have ben looking at them saying they made sesne and showed why it was important to get the pain in control sooner rather than later! how things change. I think a big part of any chronic helath problem including CP is just accepting that bothing says we are entitled to a perfect life and hat perfector not life goes on so its up to us to make the best of it- i thik it natural though tht it takes a long time for many to get to that point

Late to the party as always for me :)
Hi Angela!
Dont be afraid of high strength painkillers, they can be a very useful tool for calming a hyperactive neural system and enabling additional, useful therapies. Just keep in mind that they are dangerous and should be used with caution but can be of extraordinary value when used appropriately.
