Rather than derail the happy shameless self promotion thread I thought I'd start another one for us to share our miserable health experiences cause I know I'm not the only one that's gone through them. Currently I'm on bed rest because a couple months ago I started having intense pain in my back for some mysterious reason, like I still don't know what caused it, I was just cooking dinner when it came on.

I'd like to know more about the biofeedback they did. Anyway, since we're in the midst of the dark months and the TV is nothing but stress these days, I thought it was topical. I long for sunshine and
