:SS I need to vent. I'm so frustrated and confussed, about what to do for myself. I joined this site last night, and I'm greatful to find all of the information, and such careing people that are here.
I have such pain, mostly in my lower back. I have a herniated disk, 4 buldging disks, Osteoporosis, Scoliosis, pain that goes down my leg, Fibromyalgia, and whatever else that I just can't think of right now, (major brain fog!)
I was diagnosed about 2 1/2 years ago. I've tried PT, that did nothing. I think that I need an operation, but, who to go to??? I have found one Dr. on here, that is about 25 minutes from me. I will call him in the morning, and pray that he accepts my insurance.
All I know is that I just can't go on living this way. Yesterday, my husband and I went to the Home Depot, to get the things we need to redo our bathroom, it's really in need of help. We must have spent 3 hours there, picking things out. By the time we where ready to check out, I was in tears with pain.My husband checked out, and I went to the car to sit down.
Today, I have been in such pain, and so tired, I just stayed in bed and slept.
I'm so used to doing for everyone else, now the shoe is on the other foot. I feel like a useless slug!
I have a nephew that just had surgery, and he is now able to work again. Before he had the surgery, he could hardly even walk. So, that gives me some hope. But, he lives in VA, and I'm in NJ. Thats to far for me to travel, plus I couldn't afford to go.
If there is anyone on here that lives in NJ, would you be so kind as to pm me? I REALLY NEED SOMEONE TO TALK TO.
Well, I have complained enough so I really should get to bed.
Thanks for listening,
