Intractable Pain Patient's Handbook for Survival

I thought I got this handbook from this group in the articles but searched them and didn't find it so I thought I'd share it with you all.

I've adopted many of the recommendations and find it so refreshing that someone is not making me feel guilty about saying "NO".

My wish is that this handbook helps others, like it helped me, to accept my limitations, adopt new lifestyles, appreciate the small things and above all else, to teach you how to manage your condition.

Thank you for sharing! Saying no is difficult so many times for a lot of us...

Hi Girlfriend - I love the part in the handbook about surrounding yourself with plants, animals and music. That kind of therapy helps me a lot. I grew lots of plants from seed in my kitchen and I'm getting beautiful blossoms. Just love it.

Thought I remembered it from a hatbox post.

http://www.mdjunction.com/forums/fibromyalgia-discussions/ general-support/10669048-pain-pdf

Have read it a few times. Some things are for people with much more severe conditions. But a lot of good advice.

Had it in my Adobe documents - time to reread it.

Thanks for the reminder.

Cool
