Hello there Beth!! I found you! I have to deal with chronic pain issues too.....every single day along with fighting to keep myself from slipping into the depressed mode of bipolar....all the while raising my 14 yr old daughter (who has really been acting out lately!!!) and of course my cats! I get up and have to wear a brace for my back pain...at least most of the day. Also the fibromyalgia which actually has been brought on by all the meds I have had to take over the years and they have caused nerve ending damage. Also I really can't remember a day going by that I don't have a headache or a migraine.......but I admire you so very very much my friend!! It is so nice to have met a friend like you!! deb
