I am doing MUCH better. Kind of had a "good talking to" by my new doctor today. He said either I could continue to try to hide the fact that I hurt from my family and isolate myself....or I could try a new way and let them know how badly I hurt, how it affects me and my emotions, and have them rally around me for support. Obviously, the isolation part hasn't been working so now it is time to try a new way.
cervical fusion 2006, with great result
L4-5 surgery with cages, plates, and screws in 2005, I have continued pain
MEDS: Fentanyl patch, Norco, Celexa, trazodone, and Parafon Forte
To handle yourself, use your head...to handle others, use your heart
I'm going to smile like nothing is wrong, act like everything is perfect, and pretend its not hurting me.
