I suffer from chronic pain in my back, neck and head and a loss of mobility and ability in my arms, due to 4 severely herniated disks in my cervical and lumbar spine.
I have had constant pain for 13 years and counting.
I treat my pain with medication, physical therapy, and counseling. I am also considering surgery.

I think of myself as an optimist and I think that had helped me deal with my pain over the years. But after 13 years of constant pain and giving up most of my coping mechanisms (yoga, etc), I am exhausted and having difficulty coping.
