Re: The other dimension

I only ask the questions I have to point out a basic idea. Where is this spirituality? I have done all these fluffy feel good things too and have never had any sort of divine intervention or moment of real spiritual awareness. I have had moments of concrete logical awareness or paradigm shifts in t...

Re: The other dimension

How do you access this "spiritual" side? This sort of thing gets mentioned a lot and everyone sort of nods their head and glosses over the reality of it. What is this "spiritual" side? How do I access it? has anyone ever accessed it? is it accessible at all? We seem to talk about it like it is but ...

The other dimension

We mostly focus on the physical, intellectual, emotional, and social dimensions of our problem. However, anthropologists tell us that every culture that ever existed had a spiritual dimension also. As a committed Christian I have strong views but I do not intend to push those here. I know "Webslave"...

To pee or not to pee

Is it better to "go" as soon as you feel the urge, or is it better to hold it for a reasonable length of time. Sometimes I can urinate then want to go again 20-30 minutes later. Does this level of frequency train the bladder into bad habits?

diet

I know we are all different, but just wondering if some have experienced improvements through diet - what helps and what aggravates? I've started including a good serving of broccoli nearly every day, and a daily glass of cranberry juice - too early to tell yet but I think my symptoms are a little m...

Re: CPPS and sleep

If I had to guess, I'd say you also clench/grind your teeth while you sleep. You're a genius! I'm 62 now and the dentist told me just recently I needed a dental device to prevent clenching/grinding because my bottom teeth are quite worn down. OK, so that's what I'll do. Will keep you posted. Thanks.

CPPS and sleep

I am a bit apprehensive about raising this just in case I am the only one, thus proving my urologist right ..."it's all in my head"! For me, pain is always brought on by sleep - whether it is a 10 minute afternoon nap or an hour or two at night, I invariably awake with pain. Fortunately this is cons...

CPPS and valium

I'm pretty sure that stress/tension is a major cause of pain for me. I've done a lot of work on it but not much improved. Is the long term use of medication for relaxation beneficial or harmful?
