    MRI results shows #spinal Stenosis #spinal Spondylosis #DDD #DJD

    Hey Mighty Family,

    I just wanted to give a quick update. Had an MRI and explains a great deal. I told myself if I can deal with Fibromyalgia I can handle anything. It's tough....And at times I cry often. But I pick myself and keep moving forward. At the end of the day I'm grateful for my doctors who continue to help me. 'm seeing an Orthro Surgeon and a Physical Therapist and its ok. You know, I tell myself everyday I wake up I thank God and focus on what I can do. Thank you Mighty :).

    #Fibromyalgia #SpinalFusion #DJD #Migraine # osteopenia

    I have been unemployed since January and sometimes I feel like adding my diagnosis as qualifications because Is nothing like driving in a freeway during a flare up or talking to a complaining customer giving a presentation or being called to your boss office and keep it together till you make it to a safe place and give yourself a shot or take the medicine in the bathroom at work hoping that it works fast so no one noticed
    Also maybe adding the listing of medications we have to take daily at different times of the day
    My qualifications are fibromyalgia, migraine,DJD, endometriosis, spinal fusion 3 levels front and back, my legs R numb buy I still wear heels 👠
    I take
    Savella
    Cymbalta
    Tramadol
    Tizinadine
    Gralize
    Propanolol
    Seroquel
    Xanax
    Imitrex
    Etc

    I’m the best for this position 👩🏻‍💻

    #SuicidalThoughts

    I'm there more than I care to admit. I have labeled myself as "Chronically Suicidal ". And it's not so much that I want to end my life as I just want it all to end...the pain, the limits that all of my physical issues have placed on me, the Mental issues and the crying that goes with it, along with all of the other up and down emotions I carry in my baggage. I just want to be released from everything being broken and not being able to fix even one thing of this degenerating body and the toxic mind. I want release from the hopelessness, helplessness, emptiness and loneliness that is merely existence. But...I stay. I stay because of my pets. They are my reason to breathe. I have nothing else to keep me here except my love and obligations to them. I am the only surviving member of my family. My parents and siblings have all left this Earth. One by one I've watched them die and I keep asking my Creator "WHY am I still here?" I could never have kids, and I've been divorced from the 18 year toxic, abusive marriage I was chained to for 17 years now. I'm in my late 60's and too afraid and untrusting to give my love to anyone else ever again. No-one would even notice if I left...except my dogs.
    I hope that everyone who is thinking about Suicide finds their reason to breathe. 💜
