Today my pain was minimal, it's days like these that my prospects seem to be just fine. Knowing that my chronic pain can be kept in check is very important. Who needs to eliminate their pain completely when they can overcome it and still enjoy life? 

We had another basketball game tonight, we lost 77-62 making that four games in a row, so our record is 2-4. However, I was fortunate enough to have a really good night scoring a career-high 29 points. My family was there to watch which was also great. 

Also, I've recently added more fiber to my diet and it's supporting normal bowel function which seems to help my pelvic pain stay at lower levels. Everything I'm trying is just exploratory as there isn't really a suggested method of treatment, just trial and error. Keeping all the muscles in my lower body loose and frequent hot baths have been the most helpful. Of course I'm waiting for a prescription of the miracle pill, but I'm not holding my breath :o.

I plan on ordering "Heal Pelvic Pain" by Amy Stein, has anybody tried the protocol in this book? I'll be reviewing it on here for other CPPS'ers to check out. I'm ecstatic that I was able to hangout with a few of my friends for 2 hours today and play an entire 40 minute basketball game without my pain levels rising. Feeling thankful and opportunistic. Not too be a grinch, but keeping your hopes at a realistic level is essential to coping with these symptoms. Plus I heard that having a regular pelvis is pretty overrated these days...somewhere, I definitely heard that haha.

Wishing everyone an excellent weekend,
Rob
