    Hello,
    I think your idea of starting a blog is great.
    Myself, I have been in severe/chronic pain for 20 yrs.
    Recently, had Major Back Surgery - the surgeoun put a brace in my back on 4 deg. disc's, and the fusions ( the fusions are the disc's ) grow into brace.
    Still in severe pain and P.A. for my surgeon I think's I am faking pain. NO NO messing up my meds, more.
    I am trying to write a Book. About my son who passed in 2002, and very medically invloved, due to lifting my son wrong due to my son going into a seizure. I then hired R.N.s
    23 hrs. a day, because the pain I was in ,and going though so many differnt type of injections.
    Anyway, I would be happy to join your blog w/ all my resorces, back - ground working children,young adults who were disablied, medically invloved , so much more , and became a foster parnet for high risk teens in my home. My son loved the teens he thought he had all sorts of brothers, etc. I am lokking for people who have had the same type of surgery I had, no one yet.
    Thank you for letting me vent, and all the mis-spellings
    Kelly, Denver, Co
