A.S. Face 0938: Lucy Staub
I have wanted to do this for awhile now…I still don’t really understand everything that it going on with my body. I was diagnosed in February, right after I lost my job…go perfect timing! Lol I am 51 now and when I think back the first time I remember was when I was 13 years old. Out of no where the pain to my lower back took me to my knees. I was a tom boy growing up…played football, kick the can, basketball, softball, feild hockey…pretty much any sport. I was always in the E.R. After awhile, my mom didn’t even need to give my name…they saw me coming and pulled out my info. After I had my second child I was simply walking and some how the main bone in my foot broke. From there my body really seemed to hate me more and more each day. I always have pushed myself passed the limit and have payed later but I always felt like I must be crazy…the doctors never found anything “wrong” with me and after awhile…they didn’t even examine me. They would push meds on me for pain and muscle relaxers. Thank God I’m not the type to pop pills just cause…but I will be honest…I’m not to sure Iam happy to have actually got a diagnosis, no one has really been able to explain to me what’s going on or what to expect and other then giving me drugs, no one has given me options about what else I can do. I’ve not been given any options other then different meds. Sorry…I dislike whinning!
I have decided though that whatever is going to happen and is happening…I’m not going down without a fight! I am alive…good bad or ugly…I DEFINE MY A.S. IT DOES NOT DEFINE ME! I would like any info., hints, suggestions, I can get. I live in a very rural area which makes it that much harder…God bless all of us for we WILL continue go on! 🙂 ♥
