I've had it for some 30 years. I've tried Everything,,, literally. I know every pain associated with this disease. And most medications. Some days I feel like passing on as the pain has grown so bad over the years. But I found that with my pain Meds and mostly stopping what I'm doing, being at ease with and at One with to what I'm doing helps as I'm looking at it rather that letting it look at me. Stop, relax, breathe deep and slow. Make everything you do a pleasure instead of hurrying to get through, instead of nervously and blindly doing your chores.
