So here's what's been going on

So I got my J-tube and it's wonderful, my hair is purple, and my inscurance company keeps denying everything.

My J-tube is working great, I got it done June 20th. The first week was really bad but things are doing okay now. The incsions are healing slowly, but I expected that.

Inscurance company doesn't want to pay for anything at all. There's a chance that I might never get the SCS because the inscurance company thinks my pain is all in my head and I just need therapy. This is literally what they said. They said CRPS is a pain created by the mind and it can be fixed with therapy. It's bullshit.

My boyfriend and I are currently having extreme issues. He is being very ignorant to my pain. Especially after the surgery. I could not sit up on my own, and he was pissed at me because I wouldn't go to the zoo with him. Then on the 4th of July he came over and my incision broke open and I was in extreme pain. And all he cared about was cuddling. I was bleeding like crazy and crying my eyes out. Turns out the stiches holding my muscles together in the incsion ripped causing the small amount of muscle that had healed ripped apart causing a lot of issues. I thought I could rely on him, but obviously he just can't handle being with some one in pain. I should have expected it.

Probably a lot of things I'm forgetting to put in here but I'll remember eventually.

Sorry I've been gone, so much has been going on.

Blazedkitty, how lovely to have you back! It sounds as if that man needs thrashed.
Maybe you could tell him to back off when you are recovering from procedure.
Not good to pull apart your edges. You can attract someone who understands, and wants to help rather than hinder. Your pain is real!! Tell him how you really feel. Make yourself important, love you,believe you. I hope you find something here to help. I am so sorry you hurt so much😒🌹

Hey Jenna, I'm glad you got the J-tube because I know it will be much easier on you. Your boyfriend is being just that... a boy, not a man. You take care of you and rest so everything heals well. I had 6 small cuts for my stomach surgery in May, and two still aren't quite healed. I know it's my immune issues. I'm sorry to hear about your insurance issues. I wish I had some advice there. Always & Terrirulesnotmypain very well might be who you need, and possibly LMB. Hugs love & prayers you have a restful night and you heal fully and quickly without any more tears! πŸ˜˜πŸ’•πŸ™πŸŒΈ
