It’s not easy… bein’ green around the gills…


Pain continues. It’s really frustrating. Today I had to stop in the middle of water exercise class, and only like 15-20 minutes in.

There is a post on the debate over lack of teaching cursive writing in the schools. I hope it is something of interest to Robbbiedobbbie. I fear others will get glassy-eyed seeing it.

I am not sure who is reading… there is an unwritten rule that for so much comment and replies in others’ spaces, I should have so much to say myself. I’m not feeling up to sharing, so much. I am not sure who misses it when I don’t write.

But come now, really, if you were in pain to the point of crying and throwing up, would you want to share– much less that? TMI (Too Much Information), right?

  1. I’ve mostly just been lurking of late.
    I read, but don’t manage to comment.
    (Had health issues myself.)
    You *are* looking into this medically, seeing doctors and all?
    Pain is not good.


    • Yes… it’s an awful, annoying problem that I can’t fully resolve. As of most recently, I asked my doctor about other pain-relief alternatives, and he more or less simply said that they cost more (i.e. I pay more with money I don’t have, or insurance won’t cover).

      I switched insurance companies for Special Needs Plan (SNP, fills in gaps with Medicare/Medicaid) and I’ll have more options come January 1st. For now, I’m doing hydrotherapy… a lot of it.


  2. I’m truly sorry to hear about your condition, Jak. I’m afraid I’m a bit late getting here– are you feeling better at all? Any chance it’s a temporary thing? Will keep you in my prayers. Hang in there. : )


    • Unfortunately, no, Mark, it’s not temporary– I have a non-accident back injury, and I had two vertebrae fused about three years ago. I’m still having problems even now.
