I just want to let everyone know again what a blessing this site is! When I feel down, I come to this site cause I know my spirits will be lifted with all the wonderful caring and supportive people here! I also wanted everyone to know who is dealing with this miserable disease is , there is hope! I am living proof of this. When I started coming on here about 2 months ago, I was living a nightmare. I couldn't walk, my feet hurt so bad, my face was numb, I was having electric shock feelings all through my body, every ounce of my body hurt and I couldn't sleep at all every night. I was usually a 9 on the pain scale every day. I had to go on medical leave from my job, and I was so depressed, I didn't know which way to turn. I went to my doctor and she is a sweetheart. I give her alot of credit for making me feel the way I am today. She got me on a combo of meds and persribed aqua therapy for me. I really didn't start to feel this good until I had about 3 sessions of the water therapy. I now go 2 days a week, 45 minutes each session. I can now walk without a cane or using one of those buggies at the stores. My pain is about a 2 or 3 most days on the pain scale and I can sleep all night! I have gotten so much better that I am going to go back to my job for 16 hours a week. I am going to take baby steps and try to work up to full time again. This might take awhile, but hey, somethings are worth waiting for! I just wanted to let everyone know that there is a combo for you somewhere, you just have to find what is going to work with your body. It may take quite awhile, or you might get lucky like I did and find it right away. I will never take anything forgranted anymore. I am sure I will still have bad days, but I know there will be plenty of good days ahead. I hope for everyone the best and I want to also thank everyone, once again, for being here for me when I needed it. I want you to take the credit for also helping me here, you deserve it!!
