I am excited to be here. I definitly need support with coping with pain for my lower back. Ive had a discetomy , and now in about a month a disc replacement at one level and fusion at next. Last year i fell on my left knee, and its come to this. 2 discs were herniated into the nerve collum. I have degenerative disc disease and spinal stenoisis. I honestly am terrified.
Dealing with pain and trying to steady mental state everyday is honestly exhuasting. Pain meds have thier good and bad side. I can never do my dream job i had ever again. This has put a huge strain on life in general, my relationship with the boyfriend i live with, mental and emotional. I feel very alone alot, like no one can understand. Also, scared about the fututre.
I am hoping to learn from everyone i can here! Get and give support! I want to stay as positive as i can! Just joining, the feelinh that no one can understand has gone just a bit.
