I am allergic to wheat; corn; dairy; peanuts; walnuts and all refinements of these. The upside, I've developed many recipes that I can serve to anyone without their knowing what they are 'missing'! I have disc damage to 8 discs from the T's to the S's in my spine. I have stage one osteoarthritis. The upside, I lived long enough to get stage one osteoarthritis. I have a clinical sleep disorder from having Lyme disease undiagnosed for 15 years before radical treatment for 4 years..to save my life. The upside is a sincere empathy for people suffering 'whatever'..lyme treatment is considered 'chemo without comfort care' and it is. I've been able to help a best friend as her hospice care giver and would do it again... The osteoarthritis may be a result of some of that treatment. 1.5 years after feeling 'great' my children and I were hit head on by a gravel dump truck building logging road; driving 45 mph around a blind corner in our lane. Thus the disc damage so far determined not operable. I am in chronic pain and have gained 30 pounds since the accident. The upside...we lived through the accident and our children are okay. I am depressed over this gain - beyond stopping eating I don't know how to lose the weight as my activity level is seriously restricted from the accident; also I live very rurally and thus have little contact with any other adults beyond my husband on a daily basis now for three+ years...I am (or have been) a very social person and now am very lonely. Our son just graduated from high school; our daughter is beginning as a freshman in the fall. We have had 5 family deaths since April 08 stress..I must be a 10 because before a year ago I did not have anxiety, or if I did I did not 'feel' it. I would like an on line buddy that is realistic...so many suggestions I read about are not. I have a treadmill and hope to be able to start walking on it soon; I fell on ice last January and tore ligaments on top of disc damage but have recently been getting prolotherapy shots with one more round to go in a few weeks.l I used to enjoy immensely gardening, my garden club, making paper and home made cards and graphic design freelance work...all of which has stopped from the pain in my back which has only been tolerable by either standing or laying...sitting has not been an option for over a year. I love fishing, photography, embroidery, oil painting; herbology as well. I'd like a friend. That sums up life here for now.
