“If I could turn baaaack time!” Lol!
I do regret my progressive disease that led to a failed back surgery. It has all been downhill for that last 12 years.
I was a very young 57yo when the disease offset my spine requiring immediate emergency surgery.
The pain has been significant starting months before the surgery and continuing to this day. 24x7, 365 days a year.
Even my pain pills fall short of numbing it.
But I am grateful to have a great outlook and I am still living though the disease is silently twisting and torturing my major and minor joints!
Mother Angelica ( Catholic tv personality ) once said all pain is sacred and prepares us for our next life in heaven! I’m not Catholic but watched her program anyways after I got off work 2 nd shift. I thought that statement was one of the deepest explanations I had ever heard and was slack jawed by the end of her program.
If she is correct, perhaps I best not make any changes?
