I have problems with my spinal cord that keeps me in a great deal of pain most of the time. Some of you know the pain I am talking about. I take the medications and undergo the procedures so I won’t hurt as much afterward. You may have also heard me say I don’t want anyone cutting and probing around my spinal cord. I am not undergoing that procedure period!

One particular week I was unable to get any relief. I moved the wrong way one day and the pain became instantaneously unbearable. Each day it increased and it was to the point I was going to check into the hospital to find some kind of relief.

I then said, "Whatever it takes to get out of pain I will do it, even if they have to operate!" The constant daily pain brought me to finding the solution and more importantly accepting the solution no matter what.
