Number 8.

Today (June 11th, 2019) I went for my Spine Injection Procedure #8. And of course. Like almost every other procedure I have had, my period decided to pop up. (Everyone think’s it’s related to the stress). So basically I went in, in the afternoon. There was a lot of people waiting in the room so…

Back Pain: Arthritis and Extra Bone

I have been having back pain for as long at least 12 years now. At first I thought, back pain? This has to be normal. Everyone my age (I was thirteen at the time) must have it because nobody is showing any symptoms.
