I am going thru a difficult time right now and need some feedback.
I see the doctor tomorrow. I am depressed about being in pain all the time 24/7
and not having the life I use to have. I use to be able to walk outside but due
to leg pain from arthritis I cannot go very far. And I have back pain so I am limited on the
activities I once was able to do too. I ‘m able to use a wheeled walker. But
still have limited mobility issues. I went to PT today and had a crying session
instead because of my limits. I am also having a fibromyalgia flare up going on
which does not help matters. I know I have to be patient and let the pain
clinic do their work to help me. I have
only been going to the pain clinic for 2 months now. I have to make a new life
for myself now than the one I had which included the work I did. I was a nurse,
but due to my illnesses I became disabled in Oct of 2011. So it is still new to
me. My illnesses include degenerative disc disease of the lumbar spine – MRI findings
bulging disc of lumbar spine except L5-S1 very large herniated disc with displaced
nerve root. Osteoarthritis , fibromyalgia, bipolar II , PTSD and Anxiety.
