what does my MRI mean

This is what my report read.  I was working at the hosp. myself and now I have been fired because i hurt my back. What exactly does this MRI mean??? Please help           (1)  At C4-C5 there is a small central disk protrusion causing effacement of the ventral subarachnoid space with flattening of the ventral aspect of the spinal cord w/o cord compression. (2)  At c5-c6 minimal disk bulge  (3) At c6-c7 mild disk bulge               Opinion: Degenerative disk disease from c4 through c6 with central disk protrusion at C4-C5 as described

There is no evidence of significant disc pathology other than very

compromise.

CONCLUSION:

MINOR LEFT T1-2 SPUR WITHOUT FORAMINAL OR CORD COMPROMISE.
UNREMARKABLE MR OF THE SKULL BASE AND CERVICAL SPINE.
