sis going through what we are venting

Hate this that in so many cases certain things run in families.
My sis is going through lots of pain episodes as well. She had her first cervical block a month ago got short term relief from it.
She is going through a second block today ( please keep her in your good thoughts)
If this one is not affective then she is suppose to get a fusion over x mass holidays.
She refuses narcotics i have reminded her a few times there are other things out there that can help with the pain that are non narcotic.
From amitrypelene to nerve stuff, She is seeing a pain management and a orthopedic but has not brought up to them about alternative meds yet.
I know by the time we find here we get lots of information from others as well as work hard to deal with our chronic pain.......
She caught herself recently and said you just do not know what it is like....
I reminded her i deal with pain constantly and my life has totally changed because of what i cannot do at this point.......
Anyway keep her in your good thoughts please.......

Re: sis going through what we are venting

Zoey I pray your sister gets the relief from this second set. I am so happy for those who do, it can mean they have hope or options.
That is funny how she does not think you understand, we are all different & sometimes its hard to explain why we feel so isolated of alone in what we are going through. Sometimes it just acceptance or hearing someone elses story that sounds so much like your own. How long has she been like this?

I remember fighting the narcotic way of treatment & until I was left no choice. Still I look for alternatives. I take what I am told & hope for the best. I am thrilled when I have a decent day that allows me accomplishment or just joy. I count my blessings that I am able to do what I am still doing & feel for those who cant. Its a hard life to accept & everyone finds their own way to deal with it. God bless & your sister is blessed to have you, whether she realizes it or not you do understand to a huge degree & I think perhaps she will realize this in time. Sammy
