hello all I know I havent been on much of late just really been going through a really tuff time this last while.
As of today, I have been told that my condition is getting worse, not only is my pelvis at of alinement but now my back and into my cranal area as well.  I developing tmj from the nerves from my bulding dics in my neck is pressing on the nerve that connets to my jaw.  I also have nevers or mussles or something(cant keep up anymore) pressing on my pituitary gald which is causing me not to get my period ( at least one good thing out of all this tongue )  My si joints are dislocated and are rubbing on my pelvis ( which is the most painful thing of all this.
I am also recovering from a sever kideny infection which my doc says he thinks is from my injuries.  I have pink eye as well ! Doc says he thinks my immune system is low from stress and lack of sleep  HMMMM (you think)  I now have residule pain as well from not being able to sit or stand the correct way which has all the mussles from my pelvis up all twisted and all outa wack.
Upon all this just in the last 3 weeks, I have made a decission to send my kids to live with their dads,  I just can not go on like this anymore.  It took alot to make this decission but my conclusion is that i can spend the time now and try and get all this under some kinda management or hopeful better or I will be like this all my life.  So I sacrifice the short term for hope of regaining my life later on.
I am upset beyond belife, but as hard as it is to say, I am a bit relieved as well.  I just cant deal with all of it right now, just trying to work part time and kids and home and all that comes with it, is just more than I can possible bare right now.  Plus if I colasp or get any worse then, he will have to take them anyways and it will be worse that way for everyone!
Im not sure sure why but I feel ok with all this, I know it sounds odd to some maybe but right now all I can think about is relieving some stress befor I crack and fall apart.  I have realized that sometimes in life you have to put you first and do what you have to to make sure you are ok, because if you are not ok then no one else around you is ok.
I still have tons of hope that I can get it all under some kind of managment or cured all together, I will never give up that hope cause if I do then I might as well just roll over and die.  I have a wonderful therapist.  And I really hope that I will see results with her.  I have only been seeing her for 2 weeks now but she at least comes up with answers that the docs arent able to give me.  Plus she gives me hope as well.
I know there are several people on here that dont have an answer to what is going on with there backs and I would encourage all that fall into that cat, to see about seeing a craniosacral therapist.  Alot of peoples problems have to deal with the spine, pelvis, cranal area being outa of alingment and is treatable for many people and its something that most of the docs which ever one ther are seeing miss why im not sure.  But I have done alot of looking into it and talked with many that have been to see a craniosacral therapist and so many have gotten so much reliefe if not cured from there treatment.  Just a thought for those of you with doc scratching there heads and throwing up their arms saying they dont know whats going on.
Hope everyone is well and Thank you all for all your help and support

Hey, Lara. I am thinking of what you wrote to me in my other post and just wish I could return the favor. I'm sending you all the virtual hugs I can, my friend. I know this has been a horribly difficult decision for you to make, but I truly believe you are doing the right thing. The fact that you are feeling at peace with it speaks to that too. How I wish I could help you in some way!

I will be praying that you will be able to rest during this time, but most of all that your doctors will finally get in gear and treat you! Clearly you need medical intervention - your body is screaming for help! I am so frustrated that your doctors, like mine, seem to be so oblivious to the obvious. What a blessing that your therapist is so good. Maybe she can help to advocate on your behalf?

I'm thinking of you, friend.

I'm seconding Ry's thoughts. I know you've struggled with the decision about your children, but it really seems that you had no choice for the near future. You need to work on trying to get some of your health back, and that in itself is beyond a full time job.

I'm glad you're at peace inside with the decision; that is good information for you to know,m even though it has to be an excruciating decision to carry out. And I hope your therapist can help support and guide you. Maybe once some of the stress lessens, some of your symptoms will at least decrease some, along with the decreased stress. That's not to say the problems will all be fixed, but just that you'll have less stress on you.

Sending you hugs and support.

Lara, I'm so sorry for all you've had to deal with lately... You've been through sooo much; I'm sure you aren't only physically drained, but emotionally drained too.  But I do admire the courage and strength it took to make those kinds of decisions for your kids, and for yourself.  Rest your body, and rest your mind, too.  I will pray that you will find quick healing. --Tina
