Hi there,
I have lurked here for years. Chronic pain like most of you. I go to my PM and get my dreaded meds in an effort to avoid a bilevel fusion. I have 3 kids from 1-12 and work full time in HR so if you have any w/c questions, I am your gal. I take the meds because without them I couldn't work or pick up my baby. Some of the things that I hate dealing with are the depression that can creep up when you realize that you can no longer do something that used to be easy or when you have to disappoint your kids because you can't keep going! I hate that! Anyway, thanks for all of your advice over the years and I love the new format. I am going to post in exercise now with my questions about the horizontal mambo }:)
