Hi! :H I am sorry to do this but I hope it will help a little if I can just get my frustration out!!!
It all started two years ago when i was hurt at work. From the time I was injured everything has just been a total down ward sprile!! Pain every day! marrage problems from the injury. I worked every day and some times doubles. My boss was a @#@. In July 08 I had my surgery.
I felt good after three month. still in pain but not as bad. I thought things were starting to look up. When I was released back to work my boss took for ever to put me back on the schedual. So after almost loosing my hous I found a new job that knew that i just had surgery and was willing to work with me. Or atleast I thought there were! It ended put that if i wanted help at work i had to go threw the Americans With Dissabilitys Act just to have some help. I would cry at every brake that i had and for 20 min befor i could drive home from the pain.
I went back to the job i had when i got hurt and asked for my job back even if it starting at the bottom. I was a mannager befor i left. He told me that they were not hireing, but befor i left the store he hired some one off the stree!!!
I ended up having a sezier at three months post op. my husband lost his job from the same place i worked at. then in jan. we were rear ended it hurt the uper part of my back thank god.
I have been given a 25lb weight limit for the rest of my life! ~X( I have been trying to find a new job.but no one will hire me cause of the weight limit, so that is starting to but a big strain on are marraige!
I am sorry to vent but i have no one to really talk to that knows what i am going threw.


  • There isn't a piece of our lives that spinal problems doesn't seem to get it's nasty little hands on. I admire your tenacity for trying to get back to work and care for your family.

    I hope that this all means that some new doors are going to open for you and you just haven't discovered them yet. While it's hard to find an upside when things are bad there usually is one there somewhere, us spinal patients just have to look a lot harder for them.

    Hang in there and never, ever apologize for venting! We're all in the same leaky boat and sometimes it's your turn to ride while others spoon the water out.

  • Never apologize for needing to vent. Better to do it here than to cause yourself problems with family and friends or in a place of work.

  • I did not see anything in your post that you need to feel bad about being upset over!

    We all know how you feel... >:D<
  • I am sorry for your ongoing pain and difficulty with work and your marriage. I understand how you feel completely! You vent away any time you need to. I will pray for you and your family.
