    Let me know how things go Jo. I hope you might find as much benefit from the AIP stuff as I did. It has been a big adjustment but worth it for me. Take care Jo.

    I'm sorry to hear that you are going through this. This is very stressful. I was on methotrexate, which is what people are usually on when they are taking low dose chemo and I had to stop it due to bad side effects. I since found ways to help my autoimmune disease (rheumatoid arthritis) with diet and lifestyle. You might not be interested but in case you are the thing I found most helpful was autoimmune protocol, commonly referred to as AIP. Sarah Ballantyne created it who had autoimmune thyroid disease. (google it) and also Dr Terry Wahls I've found really helpful too. I knew you had the autoimmune issue but I did not know about the C word stuff. I am very sorry you are going through this. 😞

    Thanks reciprocity, this is a really good reminder. I am very glad that I didn't smoke when I first had this urge. Pride told me not to post an SOS but the pride would see me smoking. The SOS has been really helpful. I have typed out some of the thoughts and feelings that are brining ing me undone. I cannot talk too much to friends about this because it is too hard for them when they care about you to know you are despairing. Thanks for being here.

    Thank you Jo, I really appreciate you taking the time to write this. It sounds like you've had some similar challenges to what I'm going through. I have previously had problems with my lumber spine so I have some ok techniques to manage pain thankfully. It is my head accepting this again and another thing to deal with /manage/ recover from and watch for any further degenerative changes. I really appreciate your post and yes it has given me a little more hope. My issues are from c5/c6 at the moment and I'm having some issues swallowing I also have what they called a severe stenosis and compression. I previous had 6 years of problems (which I won't go into) with l4?l5, L5/S1. I have half of both feet now numb after the accident. This is a threat for disability. I can't help the freak outs I've had about this and coupled with the pain it all feels worse. Trebled with time invested in previous recoveries and the knowledge that comes with that and quadrupled with the degenerative changes and threat to my independence. I think it's great about your cousin but I'm not young anymore so recovery is a little different. yes I know I sound like I'm having a pity party but this is what I'm thinking and experiencing so apologies for putting it out there. I'm sorry that you have had difficulties. I think it's great that you are in a better place. I did also get a little more hope from your post than I had earlier tonight. You are very kind and generous by nature. We are lucky to have you here on the board and thanks for taking the time tonight. I'm sorry for winging also but I figure it is better than smoking. I think that getting it out there may help to find better coping here.
