Good Careers for People with Chronic Back Pain?
I don't get it. When I use a mouse or a keyboard, all my muscles around my neck go agro and I get pain shooting down into my pinky fingers.
I'm 5 weeks into recovery from a c5-7 fusion. The focal pain that was in my neck seems to be getting better. But not the shooting pain to my hands when I use a computer.
I've tried 5 different types of physical therapy.Acupuncture, chiropractic, drugs, etc.
I got a degree in digital media, so it kinda sucks that computers kill me.
Thinking about new career paths. Something where I don't have to use a computer, sit, bend, or lift. Since my low back is totally screwed.
It's too bad teachers don't get paid very well and that America's educational system sucks so bad. Teaching could probably work for me.
My best idea so far is to do physical therapy! But that's another degree.
I don't know. 7 years of pain. I don't even remember what it's like not to be in pain anymore. It's depressing. Hmm, that'll be my next post...
