I sometimes find myself in a quandary: I have ongoing pain from a flesh-eating bacteria that decided to dine on my right knee and thigh...The longer I have the pain, the more I find that I am adjusting to it, even using it when I need a bit of courage....Am I kidding myself? Or is pain something that can teach us great things if we let it?
You are a woman of great courage, and strength, and many can learn from you, and how you cope with your pain? Pain is something that you learn to cope with, and live with. I see it as a challenge to make us more aware of whom we are, and to make us stronger as a person. It gives us the will and strength to fight to conquer the illness that is causing us the pain.
Sometimes, we feel that we have to prove our self, by defying pain, and telling our self, I am not going to let you keep me down. I am going to move this leg pain, or no pain. We learn how to reason, and negotiate with the pain to give our self the courage we need to be strong, and to stay in control. We also learn to accept the things, we cannot change, and learn other ways to enrich our life.
Allow your self to continue to be the best person you can be, and you will do just fine. In your time of pain call upon the name of the Lord, and he will bring you comfort.
Depending on how advanced your illness and pain is, have you ever considered receiving healing the laying of the hand? Pray for self healing, and you will receive healing from God for your pain. But remember patience is virtue, and to wait on God. Healing will come in God’s time. God’s Healing will fall upon his children!

Pain is the body's warning system. It's purpose is to help us avoid serious injury by removing ourselves from danger or causing us to seek help.
Unfortunately, in your case the pain no longer serves it's original purpose. I suppose you could consider it a test of your mental discipline. It is a fact that, given enough self control, you could actually train yourself to not feel the pain. But that's a "monk" thing, if you know what I mean.
The brain is still mysterious enough that surprising things still happen from time to time. For example, amputees often feel pain in a limb that is no longer there; it is called phantom limb pain. A doctor has discovered that, in some patients with a partial leg amputation, you can use a mirror to make the pain go away. The mirror tricks the brain into "seeing" the amputated leg, overriding mismatched nerve signals.
So there is still hope for people with chronic pain.

The power of the pain is to let you know there is a problem and you need to get to the cause not the symptoms. It is the body and the brain telling you that it needs help and you must find out what is wrong with it and fix it.
Now you know what is wrong with it and I assume you have tried to heal it to your best abilities.
You must keep trying to heal this if at all possiable. I will look for a cure for you as well if I can find one I will send it back to you if it is alright with you.
Over a period of time your body for your own sake will adjust and get even use to the pain so that it is bearable your body can tolerate the pain an you can live with it even if you are in great pain your mind has adjusted your tolerance level so that you can go on with it.
But you must find something maybe have you tried going into a pure oxygen tank for I had a friend who had someone who went into a pure oxygen tank for a while I don't know how long and it healed him of gangrene which would destroyed his leg he would have had to cut it off he was only five at the time.
