Dealing with chronic pain and addiction

Dealing with chronic pain just trying to push on who all here deals with chronic pain I suffer from a rare genetic disease called nail patella syndrome it’s rough but I enjoy life to the fullest together no matter what we can overcome the pain!!!


Hi Eddie, I have RA (rheumatoid arthritis), I don’t remember not having pain. I’m struggling a bit more lately because I used to drink heavily to numb myself. I’m now on 42 days and powering through. I stay positive because I don’t want to be ‘that guy’ that’s always complaining or negative. :grin:


I’ve found a positive attitude definitely helps the level of pain I feel I’m glad I’m always an optimistic person can’t dwell and get into the negative we gotta reach for the stars!!!
