Good Morning! My name is Dani. It is very nice to meet you. I am very glad you found The Healing Well community. I am new-ish myself and love it here. All the knowladge and experience in the world right here. Awesome I tell you.
Im not sure what yo would do about your current medications. I was prescribed ALOT of pain medication when I hurt early on... But I have children and I have to have my witts about me. That wasnt an "long term" option for me. I did eventually end up with a spine specialist who understands my needs and tailor made a pain management plan to suite my needs and life style. Perhpas, you should try to sit down with your doctor and have a heart to heart. Also... I dont want to sound stern or anything... But, if your medicine is helping, and it is something you can take... mayybe something with just a little less side effects? Perhaps you and your doctor can come to some sort of compramise?
~~~~~ Just read your second post. Sorry, bear with me my face stings.
Wow. That is an expensive drugg test.. can you buy little cheap ones on the internet? Maybe one of those would suffice them? Then you can spent the rest on new hair cut & Pedicure
I hate hearing about someone no getting releif from injections. So hard to go through my series, I think my heart would break if I went through all of the trouble... just to not have it work. I really hope your next series provides you releif.
.....pain and child rearing is a sensative subject with me.. But!! It was quite by accident that the principal and vice principal at my daughters school found out I had rapidly progressing health issues. ... So by the time the end of school year hit, there was not way to hide my slump, hump, or tooth loss. Turns out they are very caring , understanding, and wanted to know how they could help. Have you talk to the scool administration about why you have to miss things sometimes? I had an dr. appointment was oh bout 10mins late. The principal sat with my daughter for the first few minutes of Music class til i could get there. How cool is that? In any case. I am very embarrassed ... but it turns out there are folks who understand and can help. And yes, that ten minutes ment the world to me. Small blessings. So, I guess I'm trying to say, communicate what is going on the best you can with those around you. Even the school. You never know when help will come along from unexpected sources.
Gonna go grabb more coffee instead of chatting your ears off. It is very nice to meet you and I hope to get to know you better as time goes by.
