Hi all!

I'm still here!

Sorry I've been so scare lately, but I've been incredibly busy. It's spring vaccination season & also calving, foaling, kidding, and lambing season, so our large animal work is 3-4X as much normal, which means that I work up to 15 hrs a day. It's great experience, but also very tiring.

Fortunately I've been pretty stable pain-wise. I can't believe that it's been 10 months now since I got my stimulator. That was the best decision ever. The longer I've had the stimulation, the more it has helped. I still have pain, but it's up to 80% better with my stim! Unfortunately, I know that my pain is going to get worse again once I go back to school in August & start using my eye more heavily again, but I'm enjoying the decrease in pain while it lasts.

I hope everyone is well!

Hello Skeye, wow you really are a busy one for sure, but you always were.

That is wonderful news about your stim working so well for you. If anyone deserved a break it was surely you as much trouble as you had to go thru to get one. I just hope it continues for a very long time.

So good to hear from you and know that you are doing good. Pop in whenever you can. Take care.

         Morning Skeye! wink
               As I read your update here, I can't help but think about Dr DoLittle the movie that came out in 1967. It was one of my favorites! You must be as happy as a "Lark"!
       WOW!...15hrs a day makes for a very long and tiring day! Just be careful and not over do it, or your body will give you no choice in the matter shakehead ..and we don't want you going that route.
          You seem to be one of the few, who have had great success with the "Stimulator", and we are happy for you. Thank You...for the update, and you are missed here...very much so!
        Please stay in touch, when time will allow..and take care!
