Back Soon:)


Hi,

Just to let you know that I will be away for a little while , I am having a minor operation (no its not my back), that will take a little recovery time.

So please know that if you leave a comment or contact me I am not ignoring you and I will respond as soon as I am better :) (hopefully in a couple of weeks)

In the meantime....

Take good care of YOU

Low Back Pain and Degenerative Disc Disease.

For those of you who have been diagnosed with Degenerative Disc Disease (DDD) I hope this is useful information.

If you have walked out of the doctors office with the diagnosis but without a real understanding(like I did!), it is well worth your time learning and finding out as much as you can about it.

Its your back, make sure you understand all you can and then ask more questions specifically about you and your situation.

Please follow the links below to find out more.

An Open Letter To Those Without Invisible Disability Or Chronic Illness




Hi there,

At last I found this wonderful letter to share with you;

"An Open Letter To Those Without Invisible Disability Or Chronic Illness "

I had found it some time ago and then lost it again. Now I have it on my stumbleupon faves and linked here so I won't lose it again!

It is all about understanding people who have an illness or disability that is not necessarily obvious. I think that back and sciatic pain can come under that banner heading. I know from my own experience while some people were understanding of my sciatic and back pain and the effects it had on me-physically and emotionally; others were very dismissive of "back pain" as being anything much to be concerned about...wish I could have given those people this letter...


From the page
Having an invisible disability (ID) and/or invisible chronic illness (ICI) means that many things change. Just because you can’t see the changes doesn’t mean they aren’t real.
Most people don’t understand much about these disabilities/diseases and their effects, and of those that think they know, many are actually mis-informed. In the spirit of informing those who wish to understand …
