I was driving along yesterday and I was suddenly hit with saddness. I thought about the past and how active I used to be. I remember the day my life changed forever. It was valentines day 2007. The dr I worked for who ordered an MRI of my neck called me back to the exam room and sat me down to tell me the disc in my neck was herniated. I remember crying when she told me this because I worked in orthopedics for 5 years prior and knew my life would be forever changed now. Thats when it all went down hill for me. I don't recognize this person I see in the mirror anymore. It's like the old me is gone and theres this new person here now. I'd like to hear all your stories about when you were first diagnosed and what your thoughts were. Hope everyone is having a pain free day!
