    I must admit that test looks intriguing.

    If you click on my user name or avatar picture you will see how I have been managing chronic pain for over 35 years. I can only take enteric coated aspirin and a muscle relaxer as medication. Mostly I rely on a good bed and a good recliner. Activity is also important. Along with the activity a positive attitude is very important.
