I think there should be a buddylist advertisement so here it is: If you have similar problems to me, or can relate with L-5 S-1 S-2 probs --be my buddy!! I'm sure we can help each other somehow. I had one epi and in 2wks scheduled for another. I'm a little apprehensive because I have to go to a different facility this time, although same pm doctor will do the injection.
I used to think nothing was wrong in the world until a catastrophic event hit me and left me with nothing. (hurricane katrina, gulf coast, ms-i lived on the beach). Then I couldn't stop seeing all the suffering others in the world go through all the time!! What a pitiful soul I must have been. I am different in that respect, but the back stuff was already there, unfortunately. Now I get mad because similarly, others who don't know the pain we back pain people have cannot understand it. Maybe one day.
Hopefully not because they experience it.
Take care all!!!!
Your friend in pain and hope,
