, sweetie. It's GOING to happen
, but not in "our" time frame. I see such similarities in the two of us. I have more questions with my health than I have answers. I, like you, am a fighter in spirit. It's called survival instinct (sprinkled with a macabre sense of humor) Taller Now?
I have far more reasons to "leave" than I have to "stay"...but I will until I can't do it any more. I've got too many people counting on me.
I've read how horrifically painful your surgery is. Almost one year to this date I made a final attempt to seek "help" from neurosurgeon (referred by ortho). He looked at my films, shook his head and said "come with me". He showed me the films of a female that he had surgically re-aligned/repaired. He said "I could do this for you, but I don't advise it. Seek pain management". Gee, thanks? It's one of those good news, bad news. I joke that I can't eat, or sleep, or poop...what else is there?
I'm curious...Do you have endometriosis? The Lupron treatments plus surgically induced menopause @ 33 has destroyed by bone density. Forgive me, if I've asked this question of you already.
Take care of yourself...be gentle to those bones. Make sure to exercise the funny one.
