Hello Good Evening/Morning to everyone and welcome to Afterthoughts, for Westcoastmeshfighter. Tonight’s subject is about your self worth and work. Most of us were different people, with different outlooks about our life and what we wanted it to be. Then the mesh implants started to cause severe pelvic pain, constipation, infections, auto immune disorder, mesh revisional, physical Therapy for my Pelvic Floor.
Cool graphic I found online., Coffee in my favorite color.
So here begs the question: How can we live an enjoyable life living with chronic pain? Well if I had the entire answer, I probably would be living a whole lot better than our family is living right now, being able to feed my kids without worry, have money pay for a place in a good neighborhood with a good school and just to live the life I used too. At some point I had to admit that I was human and get some help to deal with all the stress.
Ok in reality, just having a place to live is a blessing and constantly we make it through situation that could have avoided if I never became injured. I have prayed and prayed for guidance from god. One you awaken your inner soul your truth will guide you to better things, but change always has to happen. Unhealthy decisions will never get you to a place where you can say you earned it. I can’t do that anymore, but I know I can help others.
First and foremost I wanted to say is I am catholic and I want to thank God for the many blessings he has given our family as we continue with the journey. I thought to myself, so you lost your life everything. I really thought about this and there are a couple of ways of approaching this controversial issue. I know I have made mistakes along with way regarding medical decisions, however I cannot go back and change anything, so I choose to move forward. My pain is really bad so I will wrap this u.

Living with chronic pain isn’t easy, it seem that as my pain is getting worse, the more I want stay in bed. I am working on changing these behaviors that are not healthy for me or my family. I have already made the appointment to go to my internal medicine Doctor and I received a letter indicating that my urogynocologist isn’t’ going to treat patients in our dept. anymore@ UC Davis,, They did offer alternative doctors and will have to call later this morning to deal with that.
It’s hard to love yourself, I know not everyone can shut down their emotions or pain, so it’s a trial and error. I have been through so much and I am living life day by day instead of planning every little thing. Now I have started to have memory loss and I can’t remember some of the things that has happened in the last two week, this has been going on for a while now. Some of my days are good and some are terrible. Each person has different disabilities and we can no longer work. What I don’t understand is how can this be. I haven’t gone to work since September 30, 2013 due to medical reasons, so I am rehire able, however my problem isn’t fixed and I don’t know if it will ever be. I am really trying to make the best of it all.
it doesn’t stop me from trying. I just go with the flow with things, I have a bag packed just in case I have to leave my house in a hurry or go to the hospital. I try not to plan things that I can’t over come.
It’s hard for anyone to understand chronic pain unless of course you live with it everyday. I Encourage everyone to make sure you have a support system like family and friends to help you. I also encourage that you have a plan just in case, It’s not easy but a lot of towns have food banks know that catholic churches gives you two nice bags of food and fruit and breads and deserts and they have clothes.. I encourage everyone to check for that in your home town, it helps that they can help out families in need. I hope you all have a wonderful week and I will be back tomorrow with Manic Monday… Hugs and Blessings Mesh Warrior.
