Kttn: I remember from the last Psych Evaluation the Psychiatrist concentrated a lot on my childhood. Was it happy? Did I have any problems with my parents? How many siblings did I have? Do I still have a good relationship with all of them? and so on.... It seemed odd to me at the time as my mom, dad, sis and brother really have nothing to do with how I will react to the SCS or my after care. But I answered his questions the best I could and tried to be as honest as I could about
things. Yeah I'm the middle of three.....yeah I have some issues with being a middle child.....but after 45 years with this family I've learned that cannot please them all the time...hell I am lucky to please them at all LOL. But that is not my fault and I can't bear that burden my entire life.
They do not care if I have pain, nor do they care if my pain goes away and that is a fact that I have learned that I can't change. So being honest with the Evaluation and the Psychologist is going to be the best way for me to get through this and it sounds like that is the approach that you took as well. I am so glad that you are going to get the pump and maybe just maybe.....we will both get a little more relief soon
