HI- im new and im joining because im going crazy!!! i have surgery 1-22-07 and i havent been taking my pain meds since 1-9-07!!! im in tons of pain! the pain has gotten so bad that it hurts to think, walk, move, sleep, and stress just adds to the pain. im stressed because i just had to decided to take a medical leave from college this semester and my mom wants me to see a specialist and my mom just stresses me out -because she worries and asks ten-million questions. the specialist my mother found is dr deborah metzger -she is supposed to be amazing and has done a lot of great work (any thoughts). my mom want her to do my surgery-and no one else - but personal i dont want to wait around for her. i have a phone consultation with her tonight. and what it boils down to is my mom is worried and wants the best doctor to take care of her little baby. (i get that -but currently im in pain waiting around for her) i have seen 2 other doctors and my mom doesnt like them because they are younger than her. (she is a young mom -she had me at my age!! - she isnt old) (i do love my mom she just drives me crazy) anyways - if anyone would like to give me some support that would be amazing! just tell me about your crazy family too or tell me about your pain (and that it got better ;) ) or anything that you think might help

I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
