Does Someone Use The Spinal Cord Stimulator?

Does Someone Use The Spinal Cord Stimulator?

After trying whatever I could in 27 years of Chronic Pain my Dr is trying to convince me to try the Spinal Cord Stimulator and I don’t know why I am a little afraid. It would help me a lot to know other experiences with it.
Thanks 😊

Hit A Wall

Hit A Wall

Seems like a broad thing.. hitting a wall in terms of I don't know what to do or think anymore. Everything keeps getting harder, even pulling myself back up and staying motivated. Its hard to look forward to anything because I am scared of what pain I might have at that time? My thoughts and brain feel mushy from all the pain.. thoughts.. self talks.. bad sleep. How to keep going is a question that seems to be arising every morning these days
