    Finally got a second opinion from the neurosurgeon about my chronic back pain, and he says--he can clearly see the problem with my disc between L4 & L5, but there's nothing he can do about it. So, he just told me that I was fat and that the only thing I can do is lose weight.
     
    When all of this started, almost a year ago--no one said anything about my weight, not the ER doctors, not the Hospitalist, not the Spine Specialist. But  now that they can't do anything, they are saying the same thing: you're fat, here's some pain pills, go work out. Lovely. I can't even walk for forty minutes without my back erupting into spasms to the point I can't stand. But, sure, I can for a five mile jog. I'll be right back. Lemme just push myself so hard that I'll be in the ER again, and maybe then the doctors will have something new to say.

    I don't know what is up with my foot but it is really bugging me.  Kind of like a sharp pain on the sole.  Like walking in your shoes with a rock in it.  Doing what home remedies I have, and trying not to take painkillers.  But might have to take one tonight.  Will see the doctor if it continues.  
     
    Sounds like so many members are going through crisis.  I guess I am too.  We all just need to support each other, right!
     
    Hope everyone else is having a better day than yesterday.

    Feeling exhausted just thinking about everything I have to do tomorrow.  Probably will spend most of the morning on the phone.  Trying to get in touch with a bunch of different offices.  My day will be planned around one thing in particular, but I'm waiting for an email tomorrow morning to tell me if it can be done locally or if I have to go to the next town over.  The next town over is much larger and a lot of offices are there.

    My depression was triggered by chronic pain and immobility following a six day stay at the hospital nine months ago. :( Still not fixed. Doctors say it can take up to 2-3 years for my spine to repair itself. I'm currently seeking a third opinion, because, right now, I can move around for about 2-3 hours before I have to lay down for the rest of the day. This health disaster has negatively impacted my life in every way, and I tired of waiting for my life to restart.

    Second day of classes on campus in almost a year. .-. I thought I could do an hour or two sitting, but I don't know if my spine can take it. I broke out in a cold sweat during the first hour and had to stand for the last fifteen minutes. Hopefully this will get better... otherwise, I'm back to online classes.

    My goodness I'm so sorry to hear that renee.  My heart goes out to you, your family, but especially those poor kids.  I feel horrible for them.  No child should ever have to go through something like that.  If there is anything I can do, please let me know in a PM...and never worry about wearing us out!!  That's what we're here for!  (((hugs)))

    I'm not at all sure how I feel.  There's a part of me that just doesn't want to acknowledge that I've lost another family member to what I believe is an attempt to medicate mental illness with alcohol.  She was thirty-nine years old.  The same age as her mother, my sister, when she died.  She was found by her step-daughter.  She died sometime during the night.  There will not be an autopsy since she had known liver disease and wouldn't stop drinking.  Her symptoms of liver failure were apparent.  She has three young boys aged 13, 11, and 9.  I can't imagine the pain they are going through.  I was just a kid when she was born and remember her laughter and especially the first time she learned how to clap.  She was a real beauty.
     
    There are so many people who use alcohol and drugs to medicate mental illness.  I just wish more could be done to educate them.  The really hard part is knowing that a lot of them were raised by mentally ill people and have that pain to deal with, too.  My family has lost a lot.  My father was alcoholic and died two years ago.  I lost a brother to an overdose last December.  I lost an aunt to an overdose last March.  I have two surviving siblings and one of them still drinks and is very ill.  The other one has a different father and isn't as bad off.  Two of my three children are in recovery from alcohol and drugs.  They've been sober since they became adults and are doing very well.  I do believe one of them suffers from depression and anxiety, but he's not about to seek treatment for it.  He's one of those pull yourself up kind of thinkers just like I was until there wasn't any way to do it anymore.
     
    Sorry for the ramble.  I have friends I could talk to about my niece, but I'm feeling like I've had so much unhappiness to share lately that I've worn them out.
