2021.09.21 02:46 gogo_girl23 One Month post-MD: Success so far!
My (27F) sciatica started June 13th and proceeded rapidly worsen until the point where I was basically bed bound. Through the course of this three month hell, I'd tried PT, a chiropractor, NSAIDs, muscle relaxers, gabapentin, lyrica, and an epidural and nothing helped.
Originally my MRI impression stated no disc bulge/herniation (way to go, radiologist), but thankfully, I explored the situation further, knowing that with this pain and with my type of job, there was no way something wasn't pressing on my nerve. I first saw a pain management doc who identified and L5-S1 bulge vs herniation. We did an epidural on Aug 4th with no success. Then by nothing short of a miracle, a neurosurgeon who I had scheduled an appointment for months from now had a surprise opening and I was in to see him Aug 11th, and in to have my microdisectomy to remove the herniated disc material on Aug 18th. He said it was bigger than even the MRI indicated.
I wanted to write this to give hope to anyone suffering. There were so many nights this summer where I'd just cry from the pain and hopelessness while scrolling through this page because I knew so many of y'all were the only ones who knew how I felt. I would also read the success stories and find hope that maybe this could be me too. And I'm happy to report that I am in SUCH a better place. The pain now is very mild and very fleeting. I am walking without a limp, able to SIT, able to DRIVE, able to walk a MILE--all things I couldn't do prior to the MD.
I'm not exaggerating when I say I dreamed of the day I could write a post like this, and while I know I've still got some healing to do (still not allowed to bend down or lift more than 10lbs yet), I am clearly on the road to recovery, provided I am careful with my body. I know this pain can take you to a dark place. I never struggled with depression or anxiety until this injury and I became a completely different person for a little while. But it does get better. Don't give up looking for answers! You all are in my prayers!! Good luck!

2021.09.21 02:46 ThisiisJakeUp hii M20 looking to make neww frens
I like to play pc games.
I listen to heavy music ussually but not like heavy metal, like i think lil peeps music is heavy like deep and it gets to you.
I have an innate passion for writting. I love poetry and philosophy and i love thinking deeply so my metaphors have a different style to them.
i like to learn about trauma from others ive been through shit so its about getting insights and peaple that arent sorry for themselves anymore seem really articulate when they figure this stuff out because it takes a lot of effort in every way to get to the other end so they end up getting this really good comprehension of what is going on in a very thoughtful way and thats amazing to relate to.
Deeply affected by some cool stuff like trauma from violence and bully bull bull bullyyinnnggg reeeeeeee jkjkjk im used to it so dont feel sorry for me and im in therapy and bad things are so normal now are starting to get ironic and irony inspires comedy so my being silly about my past is like a self defence mechanism because of how normal this shit was. Thats just how it is im not here to satisfy a bunch of butterflies if youre not open about it, this is my reality. Take it or leave it.

2021.09.21 02:46 WWEISPUNKROCK One obvious but good analysis on Neoliberalism
Neoliberalism is vaguely defined.
however, the defining features of neoliberalism in both thought and practice have been the subject of substantial scholarly debate. The term has multiple, competing definitions, and a pejorative valence.submitted by WWEISPUNKROCK to SocialDemocracy [link] [comments]
Neoliberalism, ideology and policy model that emphasizes the value of free market competition. Although there is considerable debate as to the defining features of neoliberal thought and practice, it is most commonly associated with laissez-faire economics.

2021.09.21 02:46 Barber54 Primary Residence is dangerous,as of right now,and need to receive my DD wavier services at my alternate residence. Which is my closest Aunt and Uncle’s House.
My name is Michael Roger Saul,from Albuquerque,New Mexico,USA. I am on the spectrum,but mild and high functioning.
I am sorry for disorganized and scattered writing. Please comment and/or send me messages on what I should say and/or do.
As the title says, it’s mostly about my father,brother,his wife,human baby,and chihuahua.
I identified my father as toxic,and would rather leave him alone a while.
My father has not been a good man lately. He has gone non-messianic jewish orthodox,makes a list over everything,obsessed with throwing away,abusive,and wanting his ways too much. At least on my watch. As well as my mothers,and hers.
The things he does,sets myself and the rest of the household off.
My father also,made the workshop in our backyard,as guesthouse,again,and guess what? It’s going to fail due to winter like conditions in the Autumn. This also means that I would have to sacrifice a few rooms in my primary residence.I am still trying to get my room somewhat prepared for a little girl takeover. But,the problem is,the process has to be slow,due to a delicate procedure.
My Aunt and uncle are very close relatives of mine,and what you had read is definitely a qualifier as to why I should have what the title of this Reddit post says.
I should have my DD Wavier services because,speaking in Osmosis Jones terms,Thrax is going to take over my father,any day now.
Please comment and/or send me messages on what I should say,and/or do.
