What are you scared of? DDD is a pretty common issue that gets worse with age, you seem to be more susceptible to it. Are you going to discuss surgical treatments or pain treatments or what?

they recommend surgery... but i do not want surgery but i also don't want pain medications. I also don't have insurance. i'm only 25 and I feel like i'm 80. I just feel like my world is closing in on me with everything going on.

    Not sure why...

    I don't know why but I've been having urges to burn myself. I take something metal and hold it over a fire then hold it onto my skin. It doesn't make any sense. Also I want to pull at my nails until they bleed, and pull my hair or scratch my scalp with something sharp. I don't really know if that counts, or why I started doing it. Any thoughts/advice?

    Hello! I recently cut a phrase into myself that I don't really want to last forever. I have been putting neosporin on it, and I bought mederma. I was wondering how soon I could use the mederma, and also wondering if you guys have had any success with it. Or, is there anything else you guys have used? Thanks! :)
