Hello Betty and Welcome Welcome Welcome
I am also a forum jumper. I started here and recently had to start going to the Diabetes forum. Just diagnosed 3 weeks ago with Type 2...
We are glad to have you, but not glad you have pain... You mentioned that the pain med combo isn't working for you....Could you elaborate? What are you taking? I also have DDD, Spinal Stenosis,and other things. I have had 2 back surgeries, one of them was spinal fusion (I wish I had waited on that one).
There are so many great people here that can give you some very good advice or just listen when you need to talk or vent.. We all vent..
So, I look forward to talking to you..
We are all in the same boat...unfortunatley it seems like it's sinking...
