Learn from the young!!
I was terrified of my upcoming fusion (one level), but not now.
I got a boost, that knocked the fear out of me. But a terrible way to get over the fear.
My 17 yr old niece up North was in a car accident and it was totalled, she almost died. It is so bad, she now has screws, rods and pins in both legs and arms, neck and her back. [U]She said she is a walking toolbox[/U]. (plus she still has her sense of humor)
If she can do this at 17 (not like she had a choice, then I can too).
