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!!

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...
