Chronic pain and recovery from spinal cord injury

Mar 22, 2017 8:01 PM

Very alone I am.
I am complicated status -- having chronic pain since got spinal cord injury (L2, CE) in 2003 and also continuous recovery from aftermath of SCI.
Medical people says my case is impossible. Patients group of SCI has never believed me.
I know recovery term of SCI would be 18 months as longest. But me, it has taken over 13 years.
Fortunately my doctor has been challenging to understand my recovery and pain. I have been able to try new meds, mental care, blocking nerve injection and more.
However I have no friends.
Thank you very much for your reading.

Am so sorry you are going through this (((((gentle hugs))))))) it's hard enough dealing with chronic pain. Even harder when you don't have a support system.

You will meet people here from around the world. We understand and gladly call you friend.
