    "Being New" in anything is not easy

    Well here I am on another new adventure. I found this while
    searching the web on day after my P/T was strongly suggesting
    to me that I find someone to talk to that has a similar condition
    as I do.
    What I have is C3,4,5,6,7, fused I also have a Lactamectany
    done. "I think thats what its called. Where they go in from the
    back and widen my canal. Anyway I have big trouble with my
    hands, big time balance trouble. I also have the trouble with
    my left foot being tight +3% I wear a AFO to help me walk.
    I also have alsot of Pain. they have been trying nerve blockers
    and now steroids. But my Pain continues. I am a recovring
    addict 24yrs and I have been down the Medication road for
    3 years.I was paralized on Jan,18,2003 I worked very hard
    and 7 months in the Hospitol I am Very Gratefull that I am able
    to do as much as I can.
    My P/T thinks that I am having trouble excepting my condition
    because I continue to try things that get me in Maybe some
    trouble. I have 7 days of caregivers for 4 hours a day. I have
    no job, Plus I'm bored. My hands start hurting and you know then
    I get caught up into that BS. I still feel that there is alot of things out
    there for me to do. I just wish that My rehab employment people,
    my P/T people woulld see it too. I want my life back. Maybe it won't
    be the same but F... I gotta be able to work.
    I had a girlfriend at the time of all this and the usual story as soon
    as she saw how I was By By. Now I have a new somebody its
    good I am just waiting to see trying not to make things happen that
    haven't happened.
    Well the other day I went in for a MRI and they found significant
    arthritice in L3,4,5 with a buldge in for that could start messing
    with me walking. Yes I have all the symptoms. So next week I
    will find out the next step.
    I must say if it wasn't for Dr. Andrew Daly who was at Harbor Veiw
    at the time of my last 2004 surgery I would be alot worse off. Thank
    the Spirits for Great Dr's. I also had One tell me to quit winning and
    get over it.
    So there I am in the short version of the last 4 years of my life.
    I don't need to go into details cuz you all know them maybe better
    then me. I really would apreciate any comments or any, well
    anything I feel pritty alone right now.
