Dear Heros: I am a mother of one son & 2 step. I have a disorder that I have had 2 major brain surgeries for. This surgery is more detailed & much more of a recovery than a surgery for a tumor (although I have always tried to do good for others and help when I can whether it be people or animals. I have heart issues I take meds for, my migraines are unbearable at times. My son has tourettes syndrome (a mild case of)Ive had some really bad experiences with my medical care & Everyone w/this is different. We all differ in symptoms and how bad it is. I have been feeling much worse! I just want to feel better. THERE IS NO CURE! I was the worst the Dr. has ever seen. It was really MESSED up! Many can have as many as 10 surgeries for this, some 1, some 2 and so forth. I had 2. I have other issues as well.heart, now broken disc and more.Research the worst cases out there and you might see mine. p.s. there is more...we have had nothing but bad luck since the surgery several months! I can't explain it all. I am much worse now and I am SCARED to death! I am just at my wits end. I am not strong enough to handle anymore stress.I thought income tax time would be better but I am now depressed. Our refund is taken due to my past student loan that was supposed to be put off bc of my disability. I am in a rut right now. I cry so much. I pray every single day but the answer from God is always no. I have to have another surgery- this is just for a broken disc - big chunk out of it. It is extremely painful & I am having trouble walking/sitting & I have fallen. Besides all that they have to see what my issue is with the passing out thing/dizziness and paralyzing face issue (seconds to a minute at a time). With all this $ issues my husband & I are fighting big time. It is close to divorce, I fear. All because of my medical bills/and stuff. In the past I have always tried to help others before I came to this group & b4 my bad luck. I gave to charities & I've given to the local fire station at Christmas (couldn't this past one) for the toy collection for the families who could not afford. I've given to animal fundraisers and stuff. One day at income tax time, I will pay it forward on here. What this group does is wonderful . <3 my Paypal is firstname.lastname@example.org :) In my profile photo, I changed it from the back of my head (my hair is growing back) to my printout from the dr. That is just a small amount of stuff on there - my diagnosis papers. You can see my chiari & lumbar disc thing and much more. I am over the bronchitis obviously. I didn't include the top part because of personal information on there. I also put a pc of paper over my weight. A girl doesn't like people to see that. I am not obese, I am just a little over & when I feel better excercise will be back in my life. Trying small walks for now.
