Ain't life grand? NOT!
Hi my name is Teresa and I suffer from 24/7 non-stop PAIN!!
I'm 52, married (God bless that man who married me)I have a 25 yr old son and I used to work and be a productive citizen, but now I sit at home and cry and bitch most of the time.
(Try not to be jealous people!!)
I do try to keep my sense of humor ...hell, it's all I have left.
About 10 years ago a moron did a neck fusion on me that I knew from the moment I woke up was bad...but nobody listened to me for YEARS. Later...OH, about 5/6 years I was informed that the fusion never took...(REALLY?) and that my neck was an incredible mess!
I went to UCSF and found one of the most fantastic Dr's around but he could only do so much.
10 hours of surgery later of which, he had to bring out the big guns (and saws and chisels) I woke up and was told that they could not finish the surgery and they would be going in through the back in a few days.
Well....long...sad...story, short...The moment the back of my neck was cut open my life would never be the same!!!
The muscles did lot like that and they talk to me everyday all day long about how unhappy they are.
*(I'd be curious to know if anyone else has had any neck work done through the back and is smiling today)
I was just recently told that my latest MRI and CATs showed that the fusion surgery was successful this time.
That was a real mixed blessing. I certainly don't want more surgery, but....what is to be done with me now?
Living like this is so difficult.
Crying every day just isn't flattering...you know what I mean?
Anyway...that's pretty much my story...
I am looking for support and possibly some help and answers to my situation..
All suggestion and friends welcome!!!
I used to be very involved with digital photography and Photoshop and I am an absolute animal LOVER!
I am waiting for some relief and inspiration to pick my camera back up.
