Friends and relatives PLEASE When you come by to visit can you leave your pep talks comparisons and ideas about how my recovery from this surgery and the spinal problems and pain that I've had for many years at home. I have a team with probably more than 100 yrs. of training and experience between them and specialize in just spinal problems. That I have given my trust to. And have confidence in their decisions witch I'll follow to the T. I'm sure your ideas are good ones, but I need to follow their instructions.
Yes I do remember the incidents that you've had with your back. I think the first was a pulled muscle that put you on your back for a while. And the more serious one that you had to go to the chiropractor for. Then some physical therapy. But I just can't apply that to me. I need to follow the spinal specialists orders.
And I know that it would do me good to get out of the house. But I'm not released to be in a car for that long. And going to an R.V. show would require way more walking than I'm allowed to do.
And the story about the friend of a friends mother in law that got hit by a drunk driver that killed her daughter on the way back from her fathers funeral. It was amazing how she recuperated from the back injury and her crushed leg. Is really sad and I suppose it should make me feel grateful. But I just cant grasp that right now. I'm just not in the right frame of mind.
So it was really nice of you to come and visit me. And be sure and come back.
I really hope the anger and frustration didn't show through this phony smile. And I hope my face didn't give me away. But my pain level was at a 5 before you got here. And now it's hovering around a 7. And I had already maxed out on my meds.
I need more visits like that. NOT!!!
