*huggles all*

I got the results of my CT scan today .... I have some protruding and bulging discs in my lower back and some early signs of serious problems. My brother summed it up as "it sucks to be you". It's likely going to require surgery down the track which will need to be done by a neurosurgeon because my spinal canal is narrowing and my spinal cord is getting "squeezed" by both the cord and the degredation of my spine. Yay.

On one hand at least there is a reason for my pain. On the other hand it's only going to get worse and there isn't much they can do. The best thing my brother could say (he's an ICU nurse who ended up having to explain it to me in terms I could really understand) is that at the level the degradation and protrusions have/are occurring I most likely will still be able to walk.

Now I feel *so* much better ....

one_step_closer 11-01-2011 05:24 PM

Helen, i'm glad you're feeling better.

I'm not too bad, just waiting for the darkness to bring misery and loneliness as it always does.

Doikers 11-01-2011 05:26 PM

*Hugs Lindsay* *Lights a fire to keep the dark away for you*

one_step_closer 11-01-2011 05:37 PM

Thank you, Mark. :)

I'm just so scared that another day is always around the corner and that maybe i'm ok-ish now but it definitely won't last. I'm sick of fighting to stay alive when it's the last thing that I want to do.

*Give Lindey a magic light up wand* it's voice activated. Just say 'lumos' and it will light up :)

*Hugs Mark* How are you this evening/afternoon.

*Hugs Kahlia* I'm sorry about your back :( I hope it can be fixed, and you can get something to control the pain.

*Hugs Kitty and Felicia* I don't think either of you are lost causes. And good luck with the pregnancy test and session.

*Hugs Disturbia* Hey, I'm Lia :)

*Hugs Helen* It sucks to be ill :( I have a cold, it's not too bad but I have an AS exam tomorrow, so sucks slightly. Oh well, never mind. I hope you can sleep better tonight :)

*Hugs anyone else lurking*

Doikers 11-01-2011 05:47 PM

*Hugs Lia*I'm conflicted , torn , My mind is playing mean games with me :S

*Hugs Lindsay* I know the feeling of "I feel okay today but might feel crap tomorrow"

FlyingNy 11-01-2011 05:55 PM

*Hugs Mark* I know the feeling. My mind does that. It tells me things about myself, things I know but don't want to hear. It makes me think of bad stuff, and what might happen, what might have already happened. I wish it'd just pipe down sometimes.

*Hugs Lindsey* There's always something to hang on for.

MammaMia 11-01-2011 05:57 PM

My best friend may have to cancel me visiting and/or her coming to my 21st. ****ing great. JUST ****ING GREAT :'( I've been so looking forward to both & been helping me going. Hopefully it'll work out and I'll have wasted tears. Beginning to feel like she can't have any fun being moaned at. ARGHHHHH >_> **** this.

FlyingNy 11-01-2011 06:19 PM

*Hugs Helen* I hope it all works out for you. You never know, like you said, you may have wasted your tears :)
