That's how I feel most days...like I'm living in hell. Then I come here and read posts from some of you that are much worse than me and feel ashamed. I've had chronic back problems since an accident when I was 12...I'm 42 now. Things started really getting bad for me just three years ago. Since then I've had two L4/L5 microdiscectomies and laminectomies, and I have an L4/L5 fusion scheduled for May 19th of this year.
I am extremely fortunate that I have a wonderful wife that takes better care of me than I deserve. I have a fantastic daughter that understands why I cant play soccer or go on hikes right now and never makes me feel guilty.
I know some of you are alone and don't have anyone to help you . My wife has volunteered to help out anyone in the University Place/Fircrest, Washington area who needs someone to run an errend for them...run to the grocery store, pickup meds, grab you a movie from Blockbuster, etc... free of charge of course...she's one of those people that likes to help others...I don't understand it.
