To all my SH friends sorry i just stopped signing in. I have been threw alot since i was last here. It got to a point that I didn't want to talk or think of my issues. And yes i have had yet another surgery Dec 22nd so that makes it 11 in less than 4 years.

I have had a hard time dealing with the chronic pain and the daily acttivites. I was so bummed out when my new neck fusion didnt relieve much pain and i have such a long recovery from that. but i also noticed that It was not helping me not to talk about my condition and to know that I am not alone in my fight with chronic pain. So here I am again and ready to not be ashamed of what I can not control.



  • sorry you are having so much trouble. i too am in a lot of pain and cant walk without crutches. did you have an accident?

  • no major accident just a fender bender that caused the 1st surgery disease was there just not on set.
  • i know where you are coming from with the pain thing i am waiting for my 3rd op sometime in 2010 .i am sorry you are in pain and i fully understand the frustration of not being able to control it and all the restrictions that chronic pain puts on you .i hope that 2010 is good for you

  • I understand your frustration, I have four kiddies myself and get so frustrated. Especially when my five year old wants to play, he just doesn't understand why Daddy can't. I have beat myself up over who will teach him to play sports, who will introduce him to the outdoors, camping, etc. I have been everything from deeply depressed to mad as hell. The things that help me the most is my relationship with God, talking about it, and realizing that this is out of my control. Please come and vent, it does help. I have also been writing letters lately, to myself, to my kids, wife, etc. I don't give them out but something about getting all of the emotions out of inside of me helps. Good Luck and I wish you a better New Year.
