My name is Debbie and I live in Ohio. I just discovered this site and have read through some of your posts. I can relate to most, if not all of them. I welcome being able to talk to people that can understand what I have gone through and still going through. I have had 5 back surgeries(at Cleveland Clinic)and have Osteoarthritis, Fibromyalgia, and DDD. I have had lower back fusion (L-2,L-3,L-4,L-5,S-1).I feel like I am my own "Hardware" store!I was put on Disability 2 years ago at the age of 42. It's been a rough time to go, but somehow you learn how to cope with it. I get my strength from my husband and children( and grandchildren)!
I hope I can meet some new friends on hear that I can talk to that can understand and hopefully for me to help others also.
I am really glad I found this forum! :H
