Hello everyone, Im new here. Im Steve, and Im from the east coast of Canada. Im serving in the Canadian Forces ( for now...) Im in my early 30s, married with 3 awesome kids and I suffer from Chronic pain.
I was in a severe auto collision almost 2 years ago, where I suffered a fractured spine. Since then, its healed alright, although I do have daily low back pain and stiffness.
My chronic pain is from the subsequent nereve damage and sciatica Im experiencing. The left side of my buttocks and legs are killing me constantly. Sitting is like torture for me.
My psychologist suggested I join a group like this as a way to share my feelings and emotions. As well as a pain journal. Ive been keeping alot of my feelings inside becuase I feel like its too depressing to talk about how I feel all the time.
I also suffer from PTSD and Severe depression. Yaaaay, lol.
I have just started a blog on wordpress. I call it www.chronicallypained.wordpress.com
I intend to use that as like a pain journal, but also a place like this where we can talk and share our feelings.
I feel like I am trapped in a dark cloud and I cant get out. I look forward to meeting all of you.
