Now that my pain is under control, everything is different. I am once again able to sleep on either side. I’m back to my full-time teaching job. And I have gone from being a person who couldn’t even walk from one room to the next to someone who uses an elliptical machine for exercise: from needing crutches to go a few feet to taking regular walks to the park down the street.
Most importantly, my family situation has taken a wonderful turn for the better. My daughter now has a healthy new baby sister. And yes, I finally took her to Disney World– and walked for 10 hours!
When people comment about the difference in me, I tell them about my experience here. The staff here listen to me, believe me, and really care about my well-being. Plus, they’re always there for me, involving themselves with my progress every step of the way.
I have the peace of mind knowing that if my pain level increases, they will see me right away and help find a solution that allows me to keep me living my life. After all, I have TWO little girls to keep up with now! Start gaining control of your pain and get back to living life.
