Painedlady,I am relieved to see that you are admitted to the hospital. I am sure by now you have received some pain meds to break the pain cycle. What heart test are they planning? A stress test, a heart cath? Cardiac nursing was my area of specialization . I will be most happy to talk you through this process. You are in a safe place now, try to relax and get some much needed pain relief. If there is anything at all you need information about or emotional support please feel free to call me. I am upost nights all the time..903/714/1644,Much Love and Blessings , Terri

Ok and just keep complaining about my lower back and maybe I can get them to do an MRI. I told them I fell 2 days ago when really it was back in December but my back been bad and in horrific pain for years. My doctor took me out of work 2 and 1/2 years ago cause of my back pain. It was my number 1 problem at the time. I also have my disability hearing March 1st. I hope I get it, I just wanted Medicaid but in this state if your single with no biological children you have to be disabled. So now it's time cause this is my 3rd time. And I don't wanna stay in disability the rest of my life, I didn't want to get on it at all. But now they going to have to pay me 30 months back pay and give me insurance. My goal is to have the surgeries I need to have and get a new normal. Like I know I can't teach Prekindergarten or kindergarten again. But I wanted to get my masters degree and do counseling and start up a nonprofit for mothers with mental disabilities where they get parenting classes while their children have some preschool time.
