Today I struggled to get out of bed, muscle spasms wracking my body so bad that I could not hardly walk and knowing that just one more time of calling into work :will my boss tell me no more? After standing in the shower under hot water and crying and just only wanting to be somewhat normal agian I try to struggle and get my socks on, my little boy looks at me and says let me do that mamma..Driving him to school and wondering how can I do this one more day I pull into the gas station and the lady pumping gas looks at me and says it will be ok,she says you look so lost and I tell her about my failed back surgerys and she says dont give up look at me! She had battled cancer and then had a bad car accident and had to have rods and pins put in her spine, two months later something broke and had to return to surgery almost paralyzed,she said I never gave up hope and look at me know most days I dont even think about my back, she said it was a great mountain to climb but I am there and you hold your head high a better day is comming.I just wanted to share with the people out here who are in pain and are giving up hope a better day will come..
