Hi sassylin and welcome to our family!! It's so frustrating when your doc isn't listening. He does need to take some time and discuss options with you. First...try to relax. Tension only makes the pain worse. Next, if you need to work there are lots of retraining programs out there for people who need to change careers. Go to your local community college and start asking for help. They have tons of resources that are free...from test to see where your interests are to help with tuition for retraining. Start thinking....if you could have any other job, what would it be? I went back to school at 41 and now I'm teaching at a community college and love it! Think of this as a new opportunity.

As far as the grandbabies go...learn to sit and have them come to you. Don't be afraid to tell them that grandma's "bender" doesn't work very well. Get a small, low table that you can work at with them if they're old enough. Be creative and above all...don't be afraid to ask for help.

Hugs and keep in touch...
