I sure have been having a tough go of it lately. What a tough journey this chronic pain is. My wish is for none of us to suffer like this. It seems so inhumane. I pray that God will help me to have courage and strength to continue. I try to keep in mind that each day is a new day, a new beginning and that it will get better but that is a tough job to do some days.
I wanted to tell you some new things on the horizon for me, something that has given me a little hope again.
#1 got accepted for permanent disability, this is a huge one financially for hubby and I
#2 seeing a new dr on june 9, he is called an iridologist, please google and read and let me know what you think
we have testimonial from a family friend that has gone and is doing so much better and she too has suffered from headaches
like mine for ten years, she now has headache free days, many of them, gosh i can't imagine what that would feel like
#3 i have an appt with a chronic pain psychologist on wed. this should really help, the only thing is he is giving me one
appt at a lower price since i can't afford $170. an hour so further appt will depend on what he says to me, but i am happy
for one appt.
And that is it my friends. i hope to get your feedback.
Take care and have a beautiful long weekend.
