At no point in time have I ever said on this message board that my pain is worse than anyone else's. I am not a selfish person and I just had questions to ask to help my situation listening to other's experiences. Nor am I a opiate addict, I take one to help with quite considerable pain that I am having three months post operative. I have had people on here telling me that I am defensive and irritable - and maybe I am considering what I am dealing with at home. I am picking up a 25 lb baby 3 months after a spinal fusion - something I am not supposed to be doing but have no choice cuz my hubby is working two jobs due to all of our medical bills. At no time I have ever said that any of my problems are worse than anyone else's and I apologize to anyone who took it that way. I will be leaving the board after this because I don't appreciate negative comments, I just came on here for some positive feedback and help with alternative treatments that work for other people's pain. Everyone has a different experience and no one's pain is worse than anyone else's - it's all a personal experience for yourself. I am not a doctor either and not trying to diagnose anyone else or give negative comments to anyone else. Thank you for listening and I do apologize to anyone that I have offended. I am tired of being scrutinized for my opinion and will no longer leave it on here. Best regards, T.

I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
I'm trying to exercise daily. I was doing fairly well until I sprained my ankle 2 weeks ago but now I'm getting back on the horse. Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
