Do you ever ask yourself one or both of these questions? You'd think after 4+ years of pain, dealing with spine surgeons and PAs (on a first name basis), MRIs, x-rays, injections and medication, and having two surgeries, one cervical and one lumbar, that I wouldn't be asking myself if this is really happening.
I really wonder if any of you are like me and have an occassional moment when suddenly what's happening to you slaps you very hard in the face. You go through the day in pain, taking medications, but mostly living and then you realize how serious the trouble you're in is - like you just found out yesterday. (I guess we all did find out yesterday at some point along the way lol.)
I'm just shocked that this can still happen after all I've been through, am going through and will go through in the future. Is there any point where it just doesn't shock you any more, even every now and then?
