fusion and its been quite awhile since I stopped by, so, here I am. Good days, bad days and then in between days.(country song?)But, Im walkin and talkin and makin a livin so Im OK. I just keep tellin myself that over and over. Reality of it is Im depressed alot and life in general is real blah and bland and days fly bye and I feel older and older and more broke down with soreness and pain but I smile and try to act like nothin ever happend. I have lost my grasp on happiness and find it a struggle to enjoy anything. I still take pain killers but down to 2 or so a day of those and I wonder if they might be part of the problem. They seem to help but I really dont know. Now this vertigo is back(when I tilt my head back or to the side) and thats buggin me. Had it for a while after surgery then it went away for a couple months but now back. My neck area stays so TIGHT all the time. Even after my wonderful wife rubs it out its right back tight as it was. Anyway, Thank you all so much for being right here and letting me vent for a bit. I do feel a little better. Good luck and prayers to everyone out there. Drive On!
