    stress was the main cause of my pain, and it's taken me 8 years to whittle away at fixing it. I've tried almost all non-invasive treatements, checked almost all of the boxes! All of them helped a little bit, but mostly very slowly, including Feldenkreis (re-learning how to move). Meditation was slow but provides very consistent progress, and I will continue this with yoga as life skills.

    Gokhale posture was re-learning how to sit/stand/lie/bend and was started 6 months ago...the most recent and FAST progress I sorely needed, after so many years! The 2nd fastest help was Traditional Chinese Medicine/TCM with their herbs, food changes (warm), and daily heat with clay packs during those frigid winter (painful) months...lifechanging, inexpensive, constant work, but extremely hard to find practicioners.

    It effects life in many aspects. Can never make plans and know your going to do it. End up isolated in the house. Then the depression comes. Im 1 1/2 miles in the woods and away from anything! But I can also go for walks regardless of worrying if anyones going to see me looking like crap. Not many travel out this way. I know PT exercises and am preparing a weight room. Im also opiate dependant.
