Re: Just slipped on ice
I got some x-rays and it didn't show anything new. Just the same old problems. I talked to a couple of lawyers and they told me to forget it. Having pre-existing back problems complicates any legal issues. No one would even talk to me about it. I would think that the chances of permanent injuries and long term issues would be worsened by pre-existing neck and back problems. I have a hard time walking sometimes because of my back, neck, hips, and knees.
At the expense of looking like a total idiot, I slipped again in my own driveway today and fell on my butt. It wasn't a hard fall but I could feel the shock and pain from the jolt all the way up my spine immediately. It hurt way more than my first fall, landing flat on my back. I'm not too sure I should tell my pain doc that I slipped twice on the ice. I'm starting to believe that he doesn't take my pain as seriously as I, which is really aggravating. I actually haven't driven but 2 or 3 times in the last few months because I can't turn my neck to see who is behind or beside me. When I tell him that my pain is affecting my entire life, he doesn't really react. I don't understand. I find it very hard to disagree with him for fear of him firing me or reducing my pain medication.
Wow, talk about getting off the subject.... Sorry about that. I guess I just needed to vent.
