Hello everyone! I am new to the site and SO very grateful to have found it and all of you who DO understand what life with back/neck pain is REALLY like. I am on full disability due to being legally blind. I have 3 over-lapping auto-immune diseases, DDD of entire spine with recent cervical fusion surgery, lumbar surgery 10 years ago and now facing a serious surgery of the thoracic spine area. There are NO thoracic suregons in this entire state and I am not sure if Medicaid would even pay for a consult out of state. Anyway, that is a summary of my health issues.
I am grateful to find so many others out in the web-world here that have great advice and encouragement to offer others facing these issues and the ungodly, never ending pain that goes with spinal problems. Sure am happy to be here and meet all of you!
