Hi Spine Friends,
I am Kevin, been on spine-health for over a half year now. I have no real direction in writing this other than I am looking to find out how people cope with the same problems day in and day out. I get so frustrated and down. Depressed. My cervical spine issues are not going to be surgically repaired anytime soon due to a number of factors, so in the mean time it is all just managing. I am more closed off from people than ever. In fact, that is the opposite of the kind of person I used to be. I have spent time in the chat room and met a great deal of wonderful people and I am happy for that. I am even in as bad shape as many others, so why should I even talking about myself? I have support here at home but I know it wears thin there, too. It just feels like an endless cycle. Thanks for listening.
