About Me: Female, 54, Oakdale, MN, member since Dec 2009
I am 48 yrs. old, have chronic pain, fibromyalgia, neck fusion, middle back fusion, and am soon to have lower back fusion. I have disk degeneration very bad and have been told by more than one doc. I have the body of a very old women. It is depressing (yes I have depres
[More]sion also) I have been on so many different medications and now just started the fentanyl patch on the 22nd of Nov. and now will be going up on it. I just have lots of questions and like to interact with peeps who suffer from same stuff. My life is good, except for the major pain issue. I can not do things I could do 1-2 yrs. ago nor can I hardly do daily life stuff. My spiritual life is good so that helps. I am learning NEW stuff that I can do and still trying to help myself by working out a little. I love fishing but that too has come to a limit time wise. I love to mess in my 5 flower beds but now can not keep them up so am in the process making less beds but I cant let my plants die, My hubby laughs at me now I have to wait for spring, I hate winter and the cold so I hibernate a lot in winter. I am a fun loving person, who is working on staying positive. WOW that was a mouth full and still does not say a lot about me. Just ask~
