I'm taking some time out from being desperate for so etching else to help; it only screws with my head.
If I have to stay on the meds I will.
I have a caring family who hold me in their arms and caring friends from afar that I have never met.
I have a wheelchair, crutches and a mobility scooter, so I'm not stuck in.
This wasn't a cure was it? It was only an aid, together with my meds .. If it had been a cure I would,probably be feeling totally gutted.
I'm still smiling .. And hey, it's nearly Christmas. X
Hang on to the positive thoughts. Things could be worse. I am preaching at myself more than you.
We do have wheelchairs and crutches and mobility scooters. I love my scooter. If the weather is decent and the pain levels are down a bit, it is such a joy to get out in the sun and ride around. I purposely chose an apartment across from the hospital so I could drive myself over there for testing etc. What a blessing.
I have been a chronic pain patient since 1976. There have been so many improvements in pain mgt since then. Sadly, my degeneration has stayed ahead of the improvements.
My convaluted point is that there is hope ahead. I believe our day is coming. Enjoy the tree and family. They, too, are a blessing. Hugz.
