I can understand chronic problem, living with back pain that would probably kill most people. Most peeps see me working and can't believe I have a bad back, BUT.. just because I have grown to live with it doesn't mean it still don't hurt like crazy. Can't sit for too long, laying down sometime even makes it seem worse, walking helps a little but sometime stepping down wrong is a killer.
True I could have surgery and fuse my spine with steal rods, but that is no guarantee the pain will stop.
I know, I already have so much chronic pain that it's hard to add another place, but oh well. And my overall pain had been less severe but it's been worse all over lately. Sorry yours has been, too, Pup.
I think I'm gonna skip church tomorrow, since I don't have to interpret. Will just stay home to rest. And of course there's the healKick Bible study at 1:00 PM, so I can't sleep quite all day.
Shann mentioned surgery to me a couple times, but like you said, half the time (or more) back surgery doesn't help or even makes things worse.
Becky, glad you got the iPad!
Kara, so sorry.
Maybe things will calm down by the time you get here. Hopefully much sooner, even.
Today my grandparents came over to celebrate Dad and Grandpa's birthdays. It was a very nice time.
Then I took a nap and then finished the last book of the Hunger Games and finished the shawl I was crocheting. Took me about two weeks, I think?
As for The Hunger Games, the first book was definitely my favorite and the last was the hardest to read. I bawled through the last few chapters. But I'm not sorry I read them.
