Hello, My name is Annette and I am a 48 year old woman that has fought a weight problem most of my life. In 2000 I injured my back and ended up having a spinal fusion done in 2001. That corrected half of the problem, but left the mid back region still painful. I was told to live with it because it wasn't bad enough to qualify for surgery.

Hello, My name is Annette and I am a 48 year old woman that has fought a weight problem most of my life. In 2000 I injured my back and ended up having a spinal fusion done in 2001. That corrected half of the problem, but left the mid back region still painful. I was told to live with it because it wasn't bad enough to qualify for surgery. Well I was taking vicodin for the pain and went to a doctor that recommended I get off the vicodin and gave me a drug to "help" , that drug caused me to gain 40 lbs. in a one month period. That put me into the 240 lbs. range. Then I kept getting sick and was finally diagnosed with Lupus in 2006. Along with the lupus came fibromyalgia, and vasculitis. The most common treatment for vasculitis is steroids. Been on steroids now for three years and have developed "steroid induced diabetes". So I am currently at a weight of 264 lbs. But the pain makes it really hard to exercise. Hopefully even without too much exercise I will be able to lose some of the weight.
