I have been living with arthritis for 25 years, since the age of 11. I would love to hear how each of you get through the day. I do my stretching, strengthening and aerobic exercises 6 days a week. I also do relaxation exercises as well as deep breathing regularly. I practice moderation in my daily routine and find that most days, even if they ar more difficult ones, I can get through fine. What works for you? I stopped all pain meds (had been on tehm for 7 years and was up to a LOT of pain meds) and am feeling much better!!!
I learn Bitachion related materials often and have found much chizuk in many books. One in particular that I read over and over again is

I relate very well. I have tried many things and had so very tough times. I was lucky enough to go the the Mayo clinic's (in Rochester Minnesota) pain rehabilitation clinic for their 3 week program (outpatient Monday thought Friday) and came home a different person!!! I am so much more able to deal with things and my pain in a different way. I would be happy to share this info with you and tell you more about it. You can e-mail me directly or we can converse this way.

This specific program is meant for anyone who is in chronic pain. This specific program is a 3 week intensive program that is outpatient M-F from 8-4. Many tools are given to each participant. There are two groups. Each group is seperate and it is such that you have physical therapy and occupational therapy along with biofeedback and much education with meds and all other areas. I would be happy to talk with you about it. You can email me directly or we can go through this way.

I was also referred to Mayo but not specifically to their pain management clinic. Can you post about this experience please. I would love to hear because this interests me greatly.

Thanks in advance!

To be honest, I did not want to go at first. I felt that it would be more of the same old stuff I had been hearing about for many years. However, there were no other options and I was in nned of something. I B"H, with the support of my family, went. It was an intensive, 5 day a week 3 week progra. It lasted from about 8-4 and included many componenets to teh day. There were the groupd dynamics that wre helpful (at least in my group) and the group was forever changing. It is a 3 wek program, but is cyclical. Each day consisted of stretching, strenghtening, and walking. There were also classes on how to best use your body for the given activites that we do on a daily basis. there was biofeedback and relaxation techniques. WE also had nmany sessions on issues dealing with chronic pain. It did not matter that my chronic pain source was not the same as the next, as we sahre issues because of the chronic pain. I cam e away a much stronger person and better able to function. I also am better able to deal with my daily pain and do things in my life that I want to do along with thte things that need to get done. I would be happy to tell you about it further if you are interested.

Do you have a link or address to find out further info on that Mayo Pain Clinic?

Do they have housing available or is that extra?

Thanks.

I apologize that it took me a few days to respond. I do not know of a specific website that gives info, but you can call the Pain rehab center and they can send you information. They do not supply housing, but there are tons of hotels in the area. Most have special rates for long term. Minneapolis will send food (but I found out about this after) and I cannot recommend it enough!!! It changed my ability to function in my daily life!
Please email me if you have any other questions.
