SCI

Jan 24, 2016 3:39 PM

Hi there, anyone on here with Spinal Cord Injuries? I'm T7/8 and L5-S1 Complete. Also have severe compromise at C3/4 and C6/7. I was born with Severe Spinal conditions which are progressive and mean compromise of my spinal cord and nerves. Just wanted to see if anyone else was on here with similar or acquired SCI

Jan 24, 2016 6:23 PM

I don't have any injuries diagnosed, but I still haven't seen a doc after getting what was probably a minor concussion so now I have nerve pain shooting up my neck and spine. Not fun.

Jan 25, 2016 2:22 PM

If you haven't been to see a doctor after a suspected concussion, you probably should get it checked out if you are still experiencing some neck pain.

Jan 26, 2016 9:22 AM

Welcome JAHMAC! I don't have spinal cord issues but I do have DDD and facet stenosis with other bone/joint issues. I have seen others post problems with their spinal cord. And my nephew has a tethered cord at the tailbone. He has lots of complications and has had one surgery already. I hope & pray others on here will see your post and be able to offer support and suggestions. Hugs!! πŸ™‚πŸ™πŸŒΌπŸ’•

Thanks Flappy, I think we're all in the sa,e boat regardless of what chronic pains and conditions we have, it is nice to meet people with similar issue though, but also getting input from others who may have really good ideas for, let's say coping strategies for instance. This is a great group here!

Lmao, all the best boobies eventually drag, or hang low...lol but you can enter with your bra, for safety reasons....

Jan 31, 2016 7:00 AM

Jan 31, 2016 7:03 AM

Birds of a feather, my dear!!!

Jan 31, 2016 7:13 AM

🎢Do your boobs hang low? Do they wobble to and fro? Can you tie 'em in a knot, can you tie 'em in a bow? Can you throw 'em o'er your shoulder like a continental soldier? Do your boobs hang looooow?🎢 and the answer from me is..... Why yes, yes they do. Lol

Jan 31, 2016 7:17 AM

Ok, I just started to dribble and now I'm trying to run!! If I don't make it this time....😳

Jan 31, 2016 7:27 AM

I'm going downstairs and I'm just going to sit in the bathroom the rest of the morning.. *giggling*

Jan 31, 2016 7:28 AM

Take the phone or the tablet !/the toliet is a safe bet til your butt and legs go numb...ever had that happen?

Jan 31, 2016 7:30 AM

Sure... My feet turned blue one time cause I sat there and fell asleep.

Jan 31, 2016 7:30 AM

My mom used to tell me how she could pass the "pencil test" until she had us kids.... I told her, hell I can ace a pencil test, I can hold a while pencil BOX under those suckers. LMAO (after she finished running to the bathroom cuz she laughed so hard she dribbled, she explained that it meant a pencil wouldn't stay under her boob cuz they were so perky....*eyeroll*)

Jan 31, 2016 7:32 AM

Alwayz, the saying is: I laughed so hard that tears ran down my leg.

Jan 31, 2016 7:32 AM

No her boobs were not little. Lol

Jan 31, 2016 7:39 AM

She was beautiful too.... 23" waist and hourglass figure... Ice been fat my whole life. Lol but she's heavy now and she definitely can't pass a pencil test anymore. But she's an amazing mom. She also has fibro + multiple other stuff. She's also mildly insane just like me! Lol

Jan 31, 2016 7:40 AM

We're all mildly insane!!! I'm still laughing at the blowing butt kisses. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Jan 31, 2016 7:41 AM

Awe Phoenix, I know with all my heart you are beautiful as well!

Jan 31, 2016 7:41 AM

I have no doubt she is. When I was in 6th grade I could carry a box of pencils under one boob.. Last time I ordered bras I asked the lady if she had anything in a 36 long!!!

Jan 31, 2016 7:41 AM

I laughed at that one too!!! I was like bahahaha!!! Owwww!!! Bahahaha!!! Omg that hurts!!! Bahahaha!!!! GROAN
