Seeing as though in my description, i could only write so much so i decided to write it all here. My name is Mark, from Adelaide in Australia. I am married with a 2 year old daughter.I have a pretty fucked back and sciatica. Ive had it for about 7 or 8 months now and to be honset, im over it. Im on a waiting list to see a surgeon and the quicker the better. For about 2 months i was wherlchair bound a i could not walk, even with help. I went from working about 50 hrs a week to being stuck lying down in pain not being able to do anything. All of a sudden everything was put onto my wife and it really played with my head. I was in that much pain i was suicidal. I would often go into a different room to break down into tears as i felt useless and unable to support my family. It took a breakdown in the shower for me to come forward and tell my wife my thoughts. I was going to take all the meds i had at the time (which was a lot) that night just so i couldnt feel the excruciating pain i was in anymore. Only 2 things stopped me, my daughter and my wife. If i was single i would have done it without a doubt. So the next day i wrnt to the Drs and got put on anti-depressants which has helped me mentally. Im still on a lot of pain meds to get through each day but i am slowly getting a little better. It still gets to me emotionally that i cant pick up and cuddle my daughter but we can cuddle when im lying down which makes me happy. Anyway im just taking it day by day and hope i can see my surgeon soon. Thanks for reading my post if you have got this far lol.
