Each and every day I have this vision of me returning to my pre neck injury/operation/ chronic pain roller coaster ride.
Back in 1997, I slipped on ice and herniated some discs in my neck, which led to the discovery that I had sever stenos se , and DDD, and ended up with permanent damage to my spinal cord.
Pre neck problems, I had my own business, I was a so called mover and shaker. I travelled all over North America, constantly meeting people, never had enough time in the day. True I was on over drive, most of my adult life.
Now; my life has made a 180 degree about face, Now I never miss my kids soccer games, I have become a volunteer, helping people with more problems then me.
I try to fill my time as much as possible so I don’t think of the past, and or the present.
It seams that no matter what I do; I’m always reminded of what was, what is, and what could never be.
