How herniated disc changed my world
It was 3rd December 2021, I was on week off, I was happy and cheerful, was dancing in my room, but who knew that after few minutes my life would be changed and I will have to start living with constant pain. Okay, let's start from the beginning, I am a 22 year old girl , I have l5 S1 herniated disc and nerve compression according to my 4 doctors and 1 physiotherapist it is very minor and I should not be in so much pain but guess what? I am, I am in constant pain from last 15 months, I have constant pain in my lower back, hips, thighs and legs and no matter how hard I try to explain it to my doctors and to people who are close to me, they don't seem to believe it, however, the truth remains the same no matter whether someone believes it or not. Initially, I thought that it is something very minor and will go away on its own after some days but it didn't go away, instead it has made my life worse, I had so many dreams I wanted to study, i wanted to work but I couldn't do anything because of this pain, I was somehow working but I had to leave my job last month because the pain was unbearable. Honestly speaking I feel sad, very sad at times also I try to fight with this illness and my anxiety but sometimes I fail, sometimes, I am not strong not because I cannot be but because I don't want to be, sometimes, I feel like breaking, I feel like crying because, sometimes, I don't want to hold and want to be held!
