i have ddd scoliosis and an arachnoid cyst on my back from T2 to T 11. i have 3 kids at home and it so hard on me emotionally to see your kids imitating how you walk and hold your back. They ask if you are ok and why you walk that way. Not being able to play with them rough house. Sometimes it hurts when they give me a hug around my neck. I have a 2 year old i feel so horrible having to ask my husband to pick our daughter because i can't do it putting her in the car seat because i can't do it and i don't think he understands completely how much pain it causes me physically and emotionally. Having to take off work to take me to my dr appointments staying home off work because drowsy from medicine from procedures he keeps saying i'm not an inconvenience but it feels like i am at times all this stuff we have to do extra just because of me.
