This weekend, I was walking with a cane, and using the electric chair at Walmart. Today, I'm relative pain free. I don't understand why I have these good days and bad days. I've been doing this for 16 years, and just don't understand what brings on my flares. I do know exagerated stress does sometimes bring them on, but not always. I quit working for 10 years, and 6 years of that, I went to school (on my schedule)and had more good days than bad. Now I'm back to work, and am having more bad days than good. I can't afford to quit my job, because my husband is only doing temp work, and he has his own back problems, plus my sister is worse off than me, and I'm supporting her until her SSD comes through. I really don't have a question or anything, I just wanted to vent a little and talk to someone who understands. Thanks for reading (listening).
