im 20 years old and about 3 years ago on the job i injuried myself by pulling a pallet jack, with to much weight on the pallet. I pulled it wrong. Ever since then i have been in alot of pain in my lower back. The doctors say it was a pre existing condition and that i aggervated the area. I guess its my L5 on both side and i believe my L4 on both sides. I cant remember the name of what i have but basiclly i have fractures on those spots. I have had corisone shots i have tried phycial therapy twice the first time it made my pain worst and then i went again to another place and it started to go well but workers comp stopped approving it so i stopped going. I have been have problems with standing and walking and sitting and laying down and dancing, i cant do them for to long or just cant do them at all. I have returned to work since my injury with a 10 lbs weight resriction but just about a month ago my doctor raised it to 30 and he says it's perment. It crushes me that 30 lbs is all im going to be able to lift for the rest of my life. My doctor wont prescribe me any painkillers even though i tell him i have pain that is about 9 or 10 on a scale. They say i have no nerve damage, yet i keep having shooting pain down my leg sometimes both legs and now i am get a shooting pain from my lower back up my right side to my shoulder. No one can explain that. I just feel so lost it. It just seems like everyone has way worst back pain then me and that i shouldnt be complaining. I just have found myself being so depressed about this situation and just want someone to help me,or just talk to me i dont know where else to turn.......

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips. Not interested in being with couples and kids,,,I realize a cruise ship will have a portion size of families and couples, but perhaps they also put together a part of the cruise ship for groups of widows/widowers????
