  • There are so many of you to thank so I am gonna just make this in general, you have all been such an amazing support system, more than I could have imagined. It is funny we come fromm all walks of life, all over the US, different ages, but we share this common bond. The fact that I can vent and put my fears and frustrations out there and you all understand and care enough to respond and give me a piece of your life story, just to help me, a total stranger, its just amazing.
    I went to my PM today and my hubby let him know how emotional and up and down I have been ( its been bad) so PM put me on an anti depressant, which I have been on beforeso it didn't surprise me. Most importantly, he explained that I need to be compliant! AndI have to stop trying to self ween off the pain meds. It was a wake up call and it re set my thinking which was good.
    I just wanted to thank you all so much for the support, it is very humbling and I hope I in can, in turn, help some of you as well. We are all part of a group tha will forever bind us, one that others don't understand. I am very blessed on how well I am healing, I need to just take a deep breath and hang on.
    Thank you!!!!!!!!!!

  • Lisa:

    So glad that it is all working out for you. Yes, ups and downs, but you have such a support system at home and with your doctor (not to mention here, which you've ackowledged), I am glad you're on your way!
