I would like to address the messages from all you kind folks out there. Yes, I really am in remission for 3 years & I didn't "do" anything to make it happen. It just did. From crutches/wrist splints/back brace/morphine patches to nothing! But there was one thing that seemed to help me with my pain was electric acupuncture. That seems to help, nothing else did. Nothing. I'm NOT SELLING ANYTHING. I'm just trying to encourage you all that sometimes in the darkest moment there is a ray of hope ok? Yes, I have early Alzheimer's Disease & probably will be dead inside of 4-6 years (as I've had it for a while now). But that doesn't bother me much, what really MATTERS is if we can somehow reach out and help someone along life's way...this makes the day worth living! Don' t you think so?
