Hi, I've had severe lower back pain with sciatica (due to a herniated disc at L5-S1) and now horrible neck pain (weakened disc C5-6, awaiting new MRI results). These were due to a) high speed rear end collision 2007
b)board from my decrepit apartment falling directly on my head - june 2010 (which worsened conditions from car wreck, which had JUST gone away enough to function)
I feel so hopeless and baffled. Was fired from my job due to the pain preventing me from working well enough. (Can't blame them - I now can't stand, sit, lift, bend, twist, etc.) Am having to apply for disability and waiting so long with no income. I can't do anything around the house, have a 2 year old, and feel like such a jerk when I have to tell him things like "mommy has a bobo on her neck, so I can't play right now". Breaks my heart. Husband is getting so tired of it, cause he's not used to doing housework, and doesn't get it (can't see it, so it doesn't count, i think).
But I just wanted to say hi, and say that I'm so glad to have found this website. Reading some of the member stories and experiences really gives me some hope back, that I'm deffinitely not alone in this!
Thank you so much!
