Hi, my name is Ready4change22. I'm here because although they fixed my scoliosis with Herrington Rods when I was 12, at the age of 52, I now have a 30% curve in my lower back which is causing me considerable pain. They cannot fix the new curve without wrecking my quality of life completely. So, I am looking forward to increasing pain in lower back, butt and down my legs until I can't stand it anymore and go in for the surgery. Plus as an added bonus, the Herrington Rods in my upper back are fighting old age and gravity, causing lots of pain in upper back and shoulders.
I’m Sorry I’m Blue
Lungs are crushed under the weight of water Born by
All you were created to be
And all that you’ve become instead
Genetics-done or mother’s neglect
And what you’ve chosen
Despite all the love you claim
I can’t accept
That I should drown
So you can breathe
Because if that is love
What’s left for me
And lest I gasp for air and pull your arm
This darkness floods
Is wet with so much regret
Decisions made from disillusionment
And deformed bones are just the base for the core malignancies I’ve adorned since
Face goes crimson
Deprived of what I need
But you take another drag
And further shrink my human needs
With what you think my needs should be
Which is you
Then ask me not to look so blue
Bc it makes it harder for you to breathe
I guess that’s what i get for jumping ship
Into the sharks
I must be blind
How do I keep mistaking trauma bonds for life
And stable foundations
I once loved the sea
And now I fear it
Much like you
Much like you
Regret of once again , overdoing it..
We had a severe storm go through here Monday,, thankfully we didnt have any bad damage,, just three fence panels went down,, and huge branches and tree limbs all over the yard, front and back.. sooooo I went around for two days picking up all the branches and twigs, tried to protect my low back , pace myself,,, then today mowed the front yard,,, you know the literal straw that broke the camels back?? Well that was the last straw... I can hardly move now, my neck and shoulders are killing me , causing a big headache,, my back is weak, and low back is sooooooo weak.. I did take precautionary measures,, and post overdoing it measures,, I am not new to this game,, Ive been in chronic pain since 1980, and even before that,, have multiple arthritic conditions and autoimmune pain conditions, fibro,,, degenerative disc disease, scoliosis, severe osteoporosis, ect..... Im in my 60s,, . I have a question for those of you who have lived lives of chronic pain. Do any of y'all ever get so sick and tired of being cautious, of holding back from doing things, things you enjoy,, for me its working outside, being in the sun,, doing physical things.. So sometimes do any of y'all just say screw it and do more than you know you should,, knowing full well you will pay later?????????? Or is it just me????? I know I will get through this,, I will be miserable for anywhere from a few days, to a week or more... but sometimes I get so tired of holding back.
Scoliosis Next Steps
I recently went to my orthopedic doctor for my scoliosis and he said at the appointment that I had back in march of 2021 that my curve should only get worse by 3-4 degrees in the next 6 months and said that I should be fine but that was 6 months before this appointment and he told me that it got worse by 7-8 degrees and that we needed to scheduled another appointment for the next 6 months (September) and that I will either be put in a brace or surgery will be needed. I AM TERRIFIED! I hate to think about the fact that I might not be able to do gymnastics after I have back surgery (If I Do) and I only have three years of gymnastics left that I am eligible to do. and it makes me so scared for the future. I want to keep my nerves down because the appointment is nit until September and I have time to not be worried before the appointment.

Hi, my name is BabyCatcher. I’m new to The Mighty and look forward to sharing my story. I'm currently applying for disability. I'm struggling to accept that my career is a thing of the past. Looking to discuss how best to cope with all these feelings and interested in how others may have had to adjust their daily activities or how it has impacted their relationships with family.
So only a few years been diagnosed with autism being female you know it is what happens
I find it so hard in the community
Who else does
Where do I fit
I function like a so called norm
But don't understand conversation enough or social....
Why is it that if you are not fully unfunctional that people lump everyone together oh it's disability not being able to see each person and putting people who have high behaviours above others....
