JAX.....WTF! You must remember what I told I learned about the spine....BE PATIENT!! It CAN heal itself, but you won't hear me UNLESSS I YELL! (call me, PM me for my ph#! if you don't already have it, for the love of gawd....!!) Spinal injury sux Jax but focus on what you can do and NOT what you can't do and I can tell you much much more about what I've learned the hard way...maybe it'll help. I can't advise on the parenthood thing but I KNOW spine injury and it's ins and outs somewhat...


Thx Moonrise, I remember and my back has been doing better in some areas. But my other health issues are acting up so I'm just felling worse in general. I also have fibromyalgia, bipolar disorder 1, narcolepsy, GERD, torn rotator cuff in right shoulder, asthma, IBS, etc. So yeah my back could be perfect tomorrow and I'd still be pretty damn sick. I guess I don't have the best genetics lol. See, it's good I'm not able to reproduce.

Ouch! That's bitter. Careful, I might grind you up for coffee.

Sometimes I'm confused by what I think is really obvious. But what I think is really obvious obviously isn't obvious.

Damn straight, danwax. Plenty of people have arrived knowing nobody and left with a whole bunch of new friends, myself included. Plus, it's probably definitely better not to attempt to drag the unwilling out to the playa; it's a harsh environment before you add in the hippies and fire.

I think you're right. My view has evolved and I now think that it may be better if I go alone, so I can enjoy BM at my own pace ...
