So I need a new MRI my left hand is going numb on and off and also feel like it's being dipped in acid. The weird part is it's coming from the t-spine as massage between the shoulder blades on the spine helps immediately. My dr says not common but very possible so MRI world here I come again. He scared me a bit because he asked if I am willing to have surgery again, since I had complications that in the end have caused me to be unable to work ever again. I told him if needed yes but I would want to try more conservative treatment first.
The other issue is my daughter final had a breakdown. She is 17 and has had PTSD, anxiety and depression since my back surgery and infection in 2009. She was also severely bullied that year in school but didn't talk about it as our family was dealing with so much at the time. She had an anxiety attack last Tuesday in class and since then has made it about 2 hours last Friday to class and 2 hours yesterday to band practice. She is severely depressed and crying and sleeping all the time. She is also back to clinging to me just about every second she is awake. We talked about admission for 72 hours to the local mental health facility to jumpstart treatment and she broke down again but mainly because I couldn't be with her. She has no close friends and I am her best friend. She has never even been asked out and she is a senior in high school and not hugely overweight. She is 5'10" and weighs 180, keeps about a 3.0 GPA, yet she is closed off from the world. She thinks no one but me would miss her. She finally agreed to counseling and therapy last Thursday and sees a therapist this Thursday and we are waiting to see the doctor for the medication eval.
If anyone has any advice I would love to hear it, if not prayers and good thoughts and energies are most welcome.
