    You're making me think way too much tonight. I'm currently in I'll do it later mode, so I guess I'll get to it tomorrow. But I have to admit most of your posts are thought provoking.
  • Okay, number 1 on my not want list would be giving into my pain and giving up. I want to be thought of as a fighter and dont want the first question that comes out of people's mouths to be, "How is your back doing today?" I want to carry on normal conversations without a mention of back pain. I don't want my chronic pain to rule my life!!!

  • My first back surgery to be the first of many!

    I am motivated to do everything in my power to make sure that is not the case.

    I hope that I am physically & mentally able to stay this motivated after surgery.

    And if not, Im coming here!
    L5S1 REMOVED herniation. Years of pain & compression. Microdiscectomy complete!! Trying to be super smart & safe with recovery!
