About Me: Female, 62, Millington, TN, member since May 2008
I am 54 years old. Had to quit work with an Insurace company after 15 years because of a very chronic condition in 1998. It took me 5 years to get my disability. Since then I have developed several other health issues. Just recently I had a neurostimulator put in to try
[More] and help the pain with neuropathy in my feet. I have it so bad I want to shoot my feet off because of the constant burning and pain, and along with that I have chronic tendonitis in both feet. I have several other syndromes. I am presently on about 30 or more prescriptions a day. I sleep with oxygen at night because my O2 drops to 70 while sleeping. I had a nervous breakdown in 2003 because of the loss of my older broker who passed away with a heart attack and the loss of my nephew at the age of 15 in 2001. And then the youngest brother of 6 passed away March 18 2006 and I almost died in July of 2006, and on November 1 my younges sister passed away at the age of 45 due to the doctor giving her too much methotrexate. and it had destroyed her entire bone marrow and her entire digestive systom. They were putting 6 pints of blood in her a day until we had to make the decison whether to stop the blood or the life support. We had them stop the blood because there was nothing else that cold be done to save her.
