Next Thursday cannot come soon enough. I hurt so bad and I just want to be pain free. I know that it won't be 100% but just some relief.
Just had to vent a little...I'm so tired of whining to my husband about this. I know all you "neckies" can totally understand where I'm coming from.


  • Come on back and vent anytime you want. Yes we know where you coming from.

    hope you get pain relief you need

  • Trust me....all of us folks with spine issues can appreciate where you are coming from.

    I always say "people can't see pain" so they don't know. Lumbar pain - neck, thoracic, lumbar is not easy to deal with.

    We are here. YOu are a week away from the 'hump' to recovery.
  • vent and whine all you want!That is why we are here-us spineys have to stick together-we are an elite society!We are here for you,Jeannie
  • You want some cheese with that WHINE?

    Seriously, This place is actually the best place for me to be when I am at my lowest. I don't try to compare myself or find someone who has it any better or worse, I just know I am not alone and I am with people who understand. (After all, my husband only wants to here so much too.) SO Yooper, I wish for you many fun and enlightening distractions and speedy time through the next 8 days. I wish you great pain relief between now and your surgery. (Well maybe not so much that you begin to question your decision.) And I wish you a quick and speedy recovery.

    Come back and vent as often as you would like. Then I won't feel so bad when I do it.

    (Besides, If I am not mistaken, I do believe with all the pain meds, cheese is the last thing anyone around here needs.)

  • LOL, Frog....your post made me laugh! :) Thanks for all of the posts....just a downer day, I guess. It helps to know that I'm not alone and people understand how I am feeling. Pain is so depressing!
    I'll be glad to be off of these pain meds though...but they do help.
    Hugs to all.....Tina
  • Frog...you are silly.
    Your post made me laugh.
