I am married and the mother of three. I teach and I was finishing my master's degree when I was in a car accident with a drunk driver. I was out and waiting for the light to change when a woman slammed my truck from behind. Her car was under my truck and she went into reverse and took off. The police caught her and basically she got away with giving me two heriated disks, lower back problems, and my oldest child a fractured arm. My oldest also developed tendinitis that comes and goes in her arm. The poor baby is only 14 years old and her pain lingers too from this horrible event.
I have a limp and there are days the pain is so bad I wish I could rip the right side of my body off.
They recommend surgery and I've tried a lot but I may try a spinal block or acupuncture. I do have the surgery for June 30th of this year, but I'm scared and until then I do need more pain relief besides Tylenol.
Thanks for reading and glad I'm not alone. Although in a lot of ways I wish I was, this is not a good thing for anyone. I guess what doesn't break you makes you stronger, right?
