I focus on today

Welcome.
Reading your posts creates some good energy with my morning coffee. I have been treated with MANY, MANY 'solutions' and I find that the mind has a stronger tolerance to pain than any medical treatment I have received to date.
I have a history of DDD,DJD and tried all the drugs (which only doped me up but the pain was still there), surgeries (which created scar tissue and the pain is still there), steroid shots (which lead to osteoporosis), Botox injections which really helped but I need a lot of them in different areas, acupuncture (which was only a temporary fix), along with a history of physical therapy.
My experience is that I may have to live with the pain but it is not as bad as it used to be. Keeping myself physically active along with mental activity really helps keep the mind busy. The physical activity creates endorphins (can's explain right now what the endorphins do) and the mental activity creates calm and enjoyment in what I am doing. Enjoying music and the things I like the most, really gives me mental satisfaction in the days events and accomplishment in moving on to tomorrow. Yes, there are good and bad days but each day is different and this tells me that I have better control over the pain then the drugs. I am drug free now and only take muscle relaxers when I do too much. The best therapy for my pain relief is sleep. It calms the muscles down and stimulates the mental process when I wake up and the pain levels are down to a tolerable level. Amazing to see how the mind works.
