Hi y'all I'm just needing some vent time.
feel like a human pin cushion.
Last Monday 16 I had two spinal pain injections for Osteoarthritis. Depressed because still having pain just not as bad and I don't want to take the vicodin tonight. One doctor told me it could take up to two weeks for the injections to work and another doctor said I might have to go for a second set of spinal pain injections.
All this is new to me and I'm kinda at the freaking out stage. If I had know ten years ago I was going to get Osteoarthritis from the car accident. I think I might have done something different in my life. My husband is supposed to help me out around the house yet I still end up doing everything because he gets an allergy headache, he won't go see a doctor and I'm just so mad at him!!!!
I'm the one that's been through hell and he sits down because of a allergy headache. I just want to cry myself to sleep tonight.
Back hurts, trying to get better, just don't know why I can't. Someone help, just a joke maybe.

I feel like a human pin cushion too whenever I have to go to the doc and they take so many tests. I wish I had a joke for you. You should tell your husband to be responsible and go to the doc for his headaches, since you are going to the doc so much! But anyways, I guess we all have to deal with issues in life... hope you feel better soon.

Lack of consideration, lack of participation, lack of support for you.  Of course you feel awful - nevermind the back pain!  And, I suspect if you sat down too, or took to your bed, the things you didn't do still wouldn't get done - they'd just be there waiting for you to eventually shoulder the load again.  So sorry ... haven't found a good solution for that one.

I can tell you about one of my cats, Dupree. I have a table he likes to jump up on and look out the window. But I don't want him up there, he's ruining the curtain and the blinds. So he gets up there and I stop him. He growls like a dog when I do it. We did this back and forth for almost an hour last saturday. I was sitting in my rocker/recliner when he jumped in my lap and sat down. He's a big cat so he was almost eye to eye with me. He started to growl and when I made eye contact with him he laid his ears flat back, his eyes dialated to huge black saucers and he hisses a stinky gut deep hiss at me. The next thing I knew he slapped me on both sides of my head. Lucky for me he didn't use his claws but held his paws on my temples. Well I grabbed his paws and twisted him onto his back and yelled "Don't you ever do that to me" and chucked him in another room and slammed the door. He started scratching the door until I let him back out and an hour later he wanted to snuggle up with me. We have a power struggle going on, he thinks he's king of the world and I think I am the queen of my castle. He knew not to hurt me but evidently he was pretty mad with me. He has bitten me twice in the past out of meaness and after biting him back he quit doing it. Yep, he's a constant source of entertainment. I hope you are feeling better soon.

Just an update:
Thank you all for the replies.
The Doctor now thinks I might have a torn disc in my lower back. The procedure is done a lot but I think it's brutal. The Doctor will give me a local he doesn't want me asleep. then I'll get four injections and be asked to walk if I still have pain then it's a torn disc if it is a torn disc then the doctor will inject some dye and that's all I know.
It just keeps on getting better doesn't it.
Fun part is I have to keep calm so I don't have an asthma attack.
Someone from the chat rooms helped explain the procedure better to me it was very nice of them, but I'm still scared. It'll probably be a torn disc with the way this year has been going for me.
I saw this joke:
What do you call a Blonde sitting between two brunettes?
A mental block
Warning: This was a joke, just a joke, nothing else but laughter was intended. (lol)
(((Hugs Everyone)))

  Well now, as a 53 year old male, i gotta say your husband's a male chauvenist wimp;an allergy headache??? my dear, i was diagnosed with cfs and my doctor was trying to put me in a home. i couldn't accept that and i went off on a "i don't give a sh-t spin". well, that ended with a very bad accident. broken feet, L-1 - L-5 compacted, two compacted in mid-back, all the vertabrae in my neck are now degenerated to the point they won't touch them unless they affect major organs, and neurological and nerve damage. now, i'm looking for a woman who wants to share a quiet life AND the housework. i have a caregiver 25 hrs a week, but i have to do the cleaning ( i guess i have a touch of the taurus "i can clean better than that" attitude. i may be a foolish old newfy( an island on the east coast of canada, that supposibly has all the idiots and bumpkins as residents)( and i thought all the idiots were in ottawa running the country), but i'm housebroken( most of the time) i'm easy maintenance( too sick and sore to take out), i don't have much of an appetite, so there won't be much cooking or dishes on your nights to do it. as a bonus, as a newfy, i'm very entertaining; i gotta laugh at myself, no matter what i did that's stupid; i usually have a sick comment for everything; and just watching me bounce off walls and furniture, doing pirouettes around my dogs, and then falling withought hurting myself is quite funny. when i'm able to see again, i'll make a comment about your feet... i told'ja us newfs are foolish. now, don't i sound like more fun than a husband who whines because of an allergy headache. i'd tell ya a joke, but all the ones i know are not quite family oriented. you try to grin, and forget your hubby. apparently he has no pitty for you; so, throw the bum out and come live with me at the local asylum( i do get out on weekends!!!). the only tears here are from laughing, no tears of frustration. really, and truly. now, would i lie to you?? take care and try to cheer up. your husband could probably be worse, well maybe, yea it's possible i suppose... tongue
