Ten years ago in July 2009 I underwent emergency surgery to fuse the C5-C6 injury I had lived with for over four years, and it wasn’t elective surgery. I woke different that day, and hours later I was on my back at the dr.s office, my disc gave away and I went down and didn’t get back up until the surgery that was needed was completed, thankful I got to rise and walk again.
Ten years ago I had a 3 boys who needed me as their mom. It was my son’s 8th birthday the day our lives changed forever, and it was those children who made me fight to be here everyday and live through pain that men have chosen to take their lives for, but I choose to stay, I don’t break promises.
Next year my last baby is off, and I am alone, and left to live with this pain and little income, but I’m smart and strong and have been looking into what comes after, because we can be strong all we wish, but living in agony is a choice, and soon I will be facing that decision, myelomalacia isn’t a walk in the park and I am tired of walking in so much pain.
Those who love me, will understand
