In the emergency room again last night due to severe pain. Feeling so helpless and frustrated. I HATE what this back injury has done to my son and I wish the rest of the world could understand what he/we are going through instead of being so judgmental and critical. Saddest thing last night was what my son said while waiting for the (very rude) doctor - "I'd give up everything else in my life if I could just play baseball again." He's 18. He SHOULD be able to play baseball if he wanted to. Ugh. Just needed to vent a little.
