My Story:
I finally figured out how to do this! LOL

short version:

I've been dealing with chronic pain since 2006. Started off with carpal and cubital tunnel right hand/arm.

Now I have chronic disc herniation's in my lower back, Degenerative disc disease, Sciatica, pinched nerves at the right elbow and neck area, Migraine headaches, and fibromyalgia, and Osteoarthritis. And a few episodes where my heart flutters, Atrial fibrillation (A fib), which scares the crap outta me. Had a heart cath done in 2009 and everything was OK. But still....

Also, the anxiety and depression that goes along with dealing with Chronic pain.

I also have COPD to deal with. I'm sure I left something out, but that's the short version of my story.

I have two beautiful daughters, ages 24 (YES she's STILL at home) and a 17 year old and have a wonderful partner, Tim, who sometimes drives me crazy! :)
