Hello. I am new here, and am hoping to find some people who understand what I am currently going through. I have been suffering with multilevel lumbar degenerative disk disease for 20 years. Horrible sciatica down my left leg. Anxiety and insomnia. No one seems to get it. If they "do", they are like, oh I have this pain in my foot...I get it. But they can totally work and get their **** done where I can hardly get out of bed. I try to keep a good attitude but it is SO HARD. Literally nothing makes me happy anymore. I had my 3rd spine surgery almost 3 months ago and still feel awful. The new laws regarding pain meds made it so hard for me to find a doctor to even prescribe me anything post op, and even so, I am STILL in horrible pain and can't sleep. I feel like I have been through it all at this point and there is just no hope. Maybe someone out there has been through something similar and can offer some advice, but I feel like I have tried everything. Ugh. Sorry for being so negative. This is really just getting to me. Thanks and hope everyone is coping well.

@Chiropractor OMG, Liz, I finally found out what was going on with my stomach. After 4 trips to the hospital and 2 trips to my GP over 3 weeks and only getting worse, it turned out that I have E Coli! They did the scopes and I have mildf gastritis too, but I should be fine after a week of antibiotics. I was in the hospital from Friday afternoon till yesterday morning. Thank goodness someone finally took me seriously because I thought I was going to die. I am already feeling better after a couple days on antibiotics and am keeping food down. Thank goodness this is not another chronic, painful condition and is easily fixed! Anyway, thanks so much for being there for me and listening to me vent through all this. It means a lot. How have you been feeling? I hope you are well...

@Chiropractor oh no, Liz, so sorry you aren't feeling well! Hugs!!! I was trying to log on and keep you posted from the hospital but was having trouble. So glad this is finally being dealt with. Like I think I said, I am still pretty drained, but it is good to be able to eat and drink again without getting violently ill. That was just crazy. So hopefully soon, I'll be back to my old self. I hope you had some relief today, my dear, and keep me posted. I am here for you. XOXO
