I had no idea where to post this, but it seemed to fit in this category best so here goes. I encourage you to read a bit if my signature to gain a little knowledge of my condition first.
I have not discussed this with anyone and do not have plans to besides you guys since I'm sure yall know what I'm feeling.
Since my back injury this past summer, it has been a huge change in my life. I hold resposibilities and duties as a mother and a health care professional that I must uphold w/o fail. Some days are a tremendous struggle for me, that will leave me in tears after all is said in done b/c I am in such terrible pain. But I find myself embarrassed about what is happening and going on with my back. I don't want to discuss it with anyone b/c I am very discouraged that this will never go away. Although I need to be taking it easy and trying to focus on getting better, I just can't b/c I HAVE no other option and have to take care of my kids and family. It's very frustrating being my age, and this young, with such a painful condition. I am not depressed, just very discouraged, and struggling to make it through most days. I just need to hear encouragment, and hear from others that know what I'm going through.
