  • Agree with you about sunshine. Moved to Tenerife 7 months ago and while my husband's pain doesn't decrease - he does have a lovely tan!!


  • I like too have a nice tan makes you feel better look better ...Kind Regards T

  • some people are to ill to even go a holiday.luckily your not one of them. I know a few people who cant bear to hear about other peoples pain whether its physical or mental and i think they are the most selfish people i have ever met. i dont mind people telling me about thier pain even if it hurts me to hear it. thank god for forums like this where we can have a rant if we need one and are understood by people in the same boat.

  • Hi my name is Peter I was like u once I did not talk about how much pain I'm in in the end I nearly took my own life I spent 4 weeks in a coma but now I'm starting to get better slowly and I talk about what was wrong with me and what I suffer from so please do not keep thinks bottle up in side.

    Best wishes to u and hope u get a pain free day soon

  • Hi makemepainfree I don't mind u asking I suffer with crps that's complex regional pain syndrome the pain was so bad that I went to my pain specialist and told him if they did not amputate my left arm that I would do it myself they amputated above the elbow I still have the pain but not as bad as it was then in 2013 I had a car crash and I got it in my foot and ankle i could not walk on it, my doctor put me on anti depressants but they made me worse so last year I tried to take my own life I spent 4 weeks in a coma because I lost a lot off blood I had tried to amputate my foot so the doctors had to amputate, I'm now in a place it's like my own place I have cares that come in twice a day.

    Looking back now I regret what I did it is going to take time so people that are thinking about taking there own life's please go and talk to someone on how u are feeling and get the help I had son and I did not talk to him and now I have lost him because off what I did.

    Best wishes to u and hope u have a pain free day

  • Hi everyone

    Your right talking to my few friends and family now all my conversation seems to be about my pain the type of meds an effects I get my recent op and I feel it's not about anything but that it's as if I am now not this person who had a life an interesting things to say after doing things are going places now I don't do any of this my life is pain and how I get through a day with it my family are bored with it they even now don't ask how my days been are how I am doing on a regular basis. Pain takes so much away from a person but I won't let it take over completely I fight a little each day as all you can have is hope. And I do hope one day I am pain free. Sorry about my vent it just feels good to let it out x
