I can’t imagine the frustration of not knowing and listening to everyone, with a “have you tried this”. I have a name for mine and it is still frustrating when people say have you done this yet. I’ve survived 8 lumber surgeries. 3 cervical surgeries. 3 herniated therasic discs, which the doctors say, “We can’t do anything for them”. I have lost count of the number of injections. Every doctor I’ve been to says, “well you haven’t had injections from me”. With the same result. Pain , and sometimes even more pain to the point of being hospitalized for a week. I have an inturnal stimulator. which hurts to the touch and when I lay on it. I understand the person who said, “they pray for death or feel like dieing”. I’ve lived with this since 1991. My body has now starting to shut down. It hurts to breath, the mussels around my lungs are not functioning. My joints are burning and my mussels ache ever so deeply. Walking, sitting, standing, the pool, the car, movement causes pain. My head feels so heavy, full of fog. And yet that is good because it also feels like it wants to explode. When is enough an enough? I don’t have a choice with my body, can’t i have some dignity?
