Being positive about pain

Having climbed out of the depression pit, I am now struggling to be positive about pain. It is constant pain to varying levels, getting worse at night.

It is hard to describe neuropathic pain, but it is like pins and needles (and stiffness) in my hands, feet, legs and even mouth. Most painkillers have horrible side effects, and if I take them in the day I am sleepy or I can't even feel my legs.

I keep hearing about these wonderful Tsaddikim that remained positive and upbeat when suffering tremendous pain or terminal illnesses. One always wonders how you would react under those circumstances. Well for sure I am not on such a high Madrega. I complain a lot and can't accept my situation with joy. Give me an answer, what am I doing wrong?

"It's made using the same principles as making a jelly: you add lots of hot water to 'gelatine' - in this case a polymer and electrolyte mix - and as it cools it sets to form a solid but flexible mass." Metal to metal contact with some areas of the battery can cause a short circuit. These batteries can be sold pre-charged and ready for use. There are several options that one could always consider to make the replacement laptop batter easier. And for about a buck a piece, it is possible to have the exact same four batteries above the entire lifecycle with the costume or cable.
