Thank you - 1st Birthday !!!!
I cannot believe it is nearly 1 year (22nd) that I joined this board, and I felt I was just losing it......... I was in pain 24/7. Waiting for my fusion on the 31st of May. I joined to keep my husband quiet, as he kept on about going to pain support groups or talk to someone, at this stage I was on the floor and said "like yeah, can I lye down as I talk to them, I cant sit not to mind talk about it to someone for an hour session", but he meant someone to do a house call !!! right !, that doesnt happen here. Then he said there has to be some forum on back pain.
What I am saying here is this board has been a God send, I see, I am not alone, others out there are suffering too, some more than others, we laugh, and often I have cried when typing a post, had a few giggles when I miss understood or didnt know, (re: the post about the birds that I thought were neighbours !!!). Got some good advice, help, that got me up of my rear end and visit a pain management specialist that has thankfully put me on the right track.
Yes there are days that I say I can't continue like this, there are days when I say why me, and that is when I look for your support which is always there,
Little did I think 12 months later I would still be in pain, but these are the cards I have been dealt with so life is for living, and I just have to make the most of what I can do, and yes with pain you do see enjoyment out of little things.
So I would like to finish by saying a big thank you (Go Raibh Mile maith agait)
to everyone on the board, without each other life would be a hell of a lot harder. I am glad my husband told me I needed to talk/type to someone.
