I want my life back!
Welcome to the Chronic Pain Forum, Your name does say it all!! Boy can I relate to that! Yes I think most of us, ( if not all of us) would like to have their old life back! But I am afraid that for many of us ( if not most of us) that is but wishful thinking! I am not saying that one should give up on wanting your old life back, but eventually we all have to face up to and deal with what we have been dealt. I would not call it acceptance, but maybe in reality it is, I would rather think of it more, as way of adjusting and putting up with, what we have. After all how can one ever accept being in pain all the time? Are we not always, all trying to find a new and better way to end or overcome or other wise control our pain? But by doing that we do need to come to grips with our situation, and if nothing else adjust to our having to live our lives differently than what we did before! That is often not easy to do! You have asked about a good Doctor to repair damaged nerves, I am not at all sure that can even be done. I guess it depends on what you mean by "repair"!
Anyway I am glad you have found us here at HealingWell Chronic Pain Forum! I do think we have the best bunch of people anyway on the internet! Definitely the most caring and compassionate people you will ever care to meet!
So again I Wecome You!
