Prayers Please...

My mind is tired, body is worn & spirit broken. Can't remember the last time I slept more than 6 hours in a week. I'm a long time pain sufferer. Normally very positive & smiling to hide my pain. My lil 20 mo old knows there's something wrong & loves on me constantly. She's truly the only thing keeping me going.
There's extreme stress due to legal issues I can't discuss. I've worked my entire life but its gotten way to hard recently with all my appts & lack of sleep.
I just need some prayers to help hold me up right now. I'm breaking when I don't have that luxury to do so.

Thank You!

I'm so sorry to hear that

I'm so sorry to hear that not only are you suffering with pain but extreme stress! That alone is enough to break the healhtiest of people!
You are definately in my prayers. Isn't it amazing how our little ones just know?? Enjoy those snuggles and try to relax. I'm praying all gets settled and you get some pain relief.

So sorry for..

...all your pain and complete exhaustion.
It's not easy even on a good day..and to have your life complicated with issues and work...yikes.
Was wondering if you could take a day or two off to rest. ? .?
But real life..you are probably unable.
I will pray for you. Hang in there and keep time for caring for yourself. Smile

Thank You Daisy Mae...

I could never have children of my own. I received Mia less than two weeks after my neck surgery. She was very unexpected. I was so MAD at the world when I had emergency surgery on my neck. I couldn't believe it was me again... then she was here. I sometime believe God made me suffer so I could be there for her. If I hadn't not been off of work I don't think i'd been given her...she's truly is a gift from God.
She couldn't be more in sync with me if I had given birth to her.

Thank you for the prayers. She'll be up soon & sweet kisses will help me.

Thanks Karen...

I really wished this site was here when I 1st started having issues. I was so young & had no body to talk with. I had to hide it then more than now...

Thanks again & I guess not sleeping I'll be able to check in with everyone more!

Thank you...

That's part of the stress...I'm off work right now. I had to take off last Nov for complete exhaution. Dr hopitalized me then for a week for same issue. IV drugs was the only way to knock me out. Then I didn't have this legal thingy. I have a check up June 2 bet the samething happens again!
If they could find a way to disconnect & delete these scattered thoughts.
Have a great holiday. Maybe some swimming pool time in the sun will work.

ok Traci .....

I am and will continue to pray for you.

Sounds like your little girl is a real blessing to you. Smile

You are not alone, apart from us, He is right there with you, and will give you strength.

I will be having another lumbar MRI scan on the 2nd June, so will remember you having your check up too.

Take good care of yourself - you are worth it!

Hope your MRI went well...

I did see my dr today. He stated that I'm being sent back to my surgeon for tailbone surgery. It appears my injury did break my tailbone & since injections (now those really did hurt worse than lumbar or neck injections) did relieve any pain but made it worse there are no other treatments for that area.
My PM dr did tell my pcp that I needed to be urged to file disability & cease all work.

Just hope I don't have to fight it too hard!

Hi Traci ...

I am in the UK, so don't know anything about the American disability system but there are lots of here who have been through this maze and will be able to advise you. Perhaps you could post a new thread asking the question about it, and then the 'experts' will come along and answer you. Smile

My MRI scan went really well. The machine was very new and seemed larger and quieter than the others I have been in. Although there were noises, I could listen to my music easily and could make out which track was playing. Last time the noises were so loud that I could only just make out that there was music playing and no way could I tell which track! There didn't seem to be the banging sound this time. I hope it was working ok!!

Now I have to wait a couple of weeks or so to get the results.

Hope that you have a good day today and a good weekend. Smile

re' disablity...

I've been on disability for almost two years.
At work it just became impossible for me to concentrate on my work when I was so preoccupied with relentless pain. I pushed through for as long as I could...but quitting was the best thing I ever did...not only for me, but the quality of my work wasnt't up to par for my clients.

Within the week of quitting, I saw a lawyer for disability. They only get paid if you win and the money is from the Social Security..nothing out of your pocket.
My disability went through at 6 months, so my attorney did not receive any money. My friend rec'd benefits that were retro active for 2 years. It's such a win-win situation for us in need of disablity.

Good luck to you as you take care of yourself!
