This Pain Sucks

Last updated: July 2020

My pain started when I hurt my back working at a nursing home.

The doctors told me that I have had it for a while. My back would get sore but I would work through it.

I had surgery on my back in 1996. Had a fusion done which failed and now I have broken screws and nerve damage from it.

They won't do another surgery because it's too low...So I have to live with it

So with this pain and the chronic pain it sucks!!!!
