Gail, Thank you for writing. Wow that sounds terrible to me though. I can't imagine 2 more years with this, especially if I want to start veterinary school this fall, which is going to be the same difficulty and time requirement as medical school. The thought of trying to manage it successfully and still with this amount of pain is so terrifying. So, I hate to say this but I actually feel less confident now that you've said that. But I know you were trying to put things into perspective. Why is it that some people heal so quickly then? Why can't we all be like that? Eddie, I am sorry to hear you are struggling. Thank you for reaching out to me. Sometimes I wish that this all started for me after I am all done with school so that I can work on it with less pressure on myself time-wise. I am looking into a therapist in my area, because I think it might be helpful to work on the emotional baggage with another person who will help pull it out of me or search for things I wouldn't consider. I don't know if this is going over-board with this, but just maybe it will help things move along at a better pace. I wish you a low-pain or No-pain day today.
