Thankyou so much for taking time to reply.  I agree, the combination of Lyrica and Tramadol take it down to the bearable stage.  I'm lucky I live in a rural area and have a very understanding family dr.I admire your courage and perseverance and hope you have a Thanksgiving that's joy filled and peaceful.  meggie

Thanks so much for taking the time to respond; I do appreciate that.  I am on 2 antidepressants, one of them being Cymbalta…have been since before this unbearable pain started.  We're a small rural town in Idaho so some resources aren't available.  I agree the right movies help, as does playing cribbage and pinochle.  I have partners right here in the house.  I do try to walk outside each day and to interact with the others on assisted living/infirmary floor.  Judging from many of the responses I have it much easier than many of you…and I know God is close, cares, asks us "to fill up what's wanting in His sufferings" to quote St. Paul.  Guess I'm just new at this…finding it hard to let go of driving, organ playing, reading, being involved with the direction setting part of community   and dr. appts with lots of tests that don't say anything are exasperating.  I do thank God I have drs. who care .  Hope you have a blessed Thanksgiving, Sister

If it works I do hope you find a way it get an on-going supply at a reasonable cost.  It's not legal here in Idaho…God bless all our very conservative voters.  Thank you so much for taking time to write. meggie

You are so right!  I'm lucky to be able to live on 2nd floor of our monastery where all those services are provided and chapel is just down the hall.  I do realize how blessed I am, part of the hundredfold I think.  Thank you for taking time to answer me.  meggie

Thank you so much for taking time to reply and to give suggestions.  Living in the present moment or awareness is a Benedictine discipline that is standing me in good stead.  I admire your courage to keep trying…and to take time to reply to a stranger.  meggie

Thank you so much for responding, especially when pain is really bad.  I admire your courage to think about others at such a time. meggie

Thank you so much for your response and your prayers.  It sort of helps to know Jesus suffered too.  May you have something special planned for these next weeks of holidays.  meggie
