Sorry....I haven't been good!!

I know I haven't written in a long while. I know I told you about hurting my back. Well, I am no longer working because my back pain is so severe. I've been told I can never go back to working as a clinical nurse again. Guess I'm not going to be able to work anywhere because I tried after 2 office positions and when they heard I hurt my back, they said they didn't think the position was for me. My poor husband is carrying all the financial burden since my short term disability carrier won't extend my coverage after April 30th saying they didn't have enough to go on but I could appeal it...which I did and am just waiting for a decision. In the mean time, I'm getting nothing from worker's comp but I do have a hearing June 23rd!! So, I surrendered one of my cars since my husband couldn't pay for 3 and we recently had to drop our health insurance I received through my company because it was too expensive and will be going with his company's but for 30 days...NO insurance. That's scary in this day and time.

I have resigned as MD state organizer for as most days I can't even get out of bed and stay doped up on vicodin and oxycontin for pain. But they are a great organization and hope all of you go to their site to see what they are doing.

I do have a small garden and we planted lots of corn and watermelon and cucumbers to sell plus multiple yard sales...basically doing anything to get some extra cash.

I hope to write again soon...but I can't promise anything!!! Let me know how you all are doing.

Sorry to hear you are not doing well. I to struggle with various health issues. Among them is three ruptured disks in my lower back and sciatic nerve pain. In time the pain does seem to settle down and you will find way to work with the pain and how to balance pain and activity levels. I will be praying you feel better soon. Write me anytime if you want someone to talk to. I have been in constant pain since being struck by a car while delivering newspapers at 16, I am now 50. So it's been a lot of years. Take care....
