David Charles-

My heart goes out to you- I'm so sorry that you are suffering the way you are. What did you do to your back that you had to have so many levels fused? Were you in an accident?

I know what it's like. I'm 20 with DDD, l3-5 disc ruptures and spinal stenosis. I had surgery on l4-5 in 98 but it didn't help. Luckily I'm on a sustained release morphine for the pain...but it's a tough way of living. I'm deciding on whether to have a fusion this summer after graduating from college...but they tell me to "hold off as long as possible"....and I don't really know what that means.

Anyway, just know that you are not alone. I know it's so hard to keep a sense of humor with everything....but I bet your little girl finds ways to make you smile??

hang-in there David Charles...you are in my thoughts and prayers.

every good wish-
Dani (danielle)
