Heart To Friends New and Old

I can't believe that I've been sick, and still fighting an admitted case from the beginning, with a DOI 11/02.

But I have to say that moving to a colder climate has helped my disease. My disease branched out to specific additional diseases I proved by medical evidence, and it has been very hard to be basically 90 percent bedridden, as well as unable to "chitty-chat" or use my hands (or rest of body.)

Pain is constant, but changes in level.

Pain is also delayed, so if I have a "good" day and try to get something done, like a hospital test, I can develop horrific pain within 3 days.

But, overall, my pain is not as often a 10, and I am learning more each day. I have trouble breathing, my heart flutters, and I am waiting for the sleep study currently.

I rely on my God for optimism, promise of seeing my family in heaven, and for my own strength, but mainly for the prayers for you, my family and friends.

I am embarrassed by how I used to get into silly arguments in the beginning.

I lost some good friends over that, and I want to apologize and invite you to email me if you want to know me again.

Since getting TOS, the Internet government sites have greatly changed their contact. Don't forget there is always a political back-drop, and, doctors sure hate to say "I don't know."

Some of you may remember I was an attorney and Pro Tem judge for 14 years, est.

Love to you all, Tshadow

Hi TS !

Thanks for checking in. I think of you often. I wish that your time away was because you were out enjoying life with pain free days and not because of the limitations of your disability.

When I first found BT and suspected that I might have TOS, but couldn't find a doctor who even understood it, I learned so much from you about this condition and how to fight for getting treatment.

Bless you,



Gee, this looks like a great place to sit and have a picnic with my yummy bone !

T Shadow, are you Tammy from the old Brain-Talk Workers Compensation forum, If it's you I wondered how you have been doing these many years, almost a decade has past since I posted here. You gave a lot of time trying to help people navigate this crazy system when there were very little websites with few resources. Chronic pain is depressing because it never goes away and people have no clue why we are not happy shinning examples twenty-four Seven. My case has continued to grind to a halt, as my former employer is using every trick to stall or deny treatment .

How has the weather helped your pain levels? Did you move to get away to start a new identity where nobody knows you or you don't have to answer a bag of questions? Thank you for helping us even though you were suffering greatly from your pain, I hope you did not aggravate your pain by getting too involved and giving too much, at a time you were battling some nasty parts of life. Thank you again, I know what it's like to be bed-ridden after trying to pretend I'am normal by overdoing it, please watch yourself too, we both were injured the same year.
