storm's first blog


well welcome to my first blog. I'm not sure what I will include in my blogs so we'll see what happens.

I'm currently coming to terms with the fact that I am classed as disabled. I have chronic back pain due to a prolapsed disc & a compressed disc. My last flare up as resulted in me having to use my crutches again but for the first time a wheelchair. I'm lucky to have a fantastic hubby to be who looks after me when hes not at work. I have 3 beautiful girls who also have to pitch in to help when I'm in alot of pain.

Todays achievement will sound daft to a lot of people but it was fantastic to me. What was it? ....I managed to have a bath without any help. I feel wonderful, yes still in pain but its a step in the right direction.

I forgot to mention that I am 36 yrs old. I was recently admitted to hospital because of the pain and was put on a ward where I was the youngest person. It seems this is expected of older people.

I've looked for forums to beable to chat to other suffers with no luck so if anyone knows of any then please let me know. 

well I think thats it for today
Bye for now xx
