My 32 year old partner has been suffering from extreme lower back pain since she blew out a disc back in August of 2012. Apart from the physical symptoms (Severe back pain, foot drop) she suffers from depression. She has had 2 back surgeries already and now has to have another one as on of her discs have herniated again. I feel absolutely helpless. I want to help her as we wait for the slow moving medical machine to get her to her next surgery. Does anyone know of any support groups in the SF Peninsula area where we can go for moral support and networking? Doing this alone is not cutting it anymore.
