Hi my name Tina i log on most days and read the recent posts, some times i comment or create a post but most days i just read. It makes me feel better when i see how much surport you give one another and how inportant this site is to its users. Well abit about me i have had a C3/C4 C4/C5 C5/C6 fusion in 2007 then a C6/C7 fusion in 2012 i also have spondylotic cercical myelopathy, then new in 2010compromise at L4/L5 L5/S1 also a mild thoracic scoliosis 2011. This all has an effect on my day to day living, my lack of mobilty and having to give up work was the hardest to cope with at first . I was only 33 at the time. At the moment i am writeing my pain diary, i have been in chronic pain for about 4 to 5 years now but i have got to say i feel that my pain is at its worse it has ever been i have talked to my GP she has uped my meds i have rang my pain team last week and they have given me an phone appointment for 30 mins tommrow were i will have to discuss my pain and read from my pain dairy,but as i went over my dairy today it made me quite sad is this the way things are gonna be . Don't get me wrong i got a good out look on life i get up every mornning and every days a new day i just know my limmits now, and i thank God for all i have but i am just tired . My mom said to me yesterday you look so sad lately i say what i always say no i am fine dont worry but you no what i am tired.
