I live with many ailments. I have bad scoliosis of the spine and am in pain 24/7. I live with this every day. I have lost feeling in my feet because of diabetes, but get pain in my toes like a red hot needle is being put into the tips of each one. I am in constant pain, but nobody knows because I do not complain. I get on with life and work full time. I put the pain in the back of my mind, as I refuse to let it get the better of me. I really don't want any more abnormalities. This is a good question though. It will be interesting to hear other hubbers answers.
