I love being able to come here and post a positive update. It is important to me, to let all the people who poured their hard earned dollars towards my medical care know that I am, in fact, doing better. Progress is still slow but it is forward and I am walking better and learning tools to deal with the pain. It's truly amazing what you have all done for me. Thank you. Please know how much I cherish you!

Worked my way through the bad flare up with the help of three new physical therapists who are trained in the McKenzie technique. They looked through my records, told me to forget everything that all the other therapists, doctors had said and to ONLY do the 6 exercises they taught me and in a specific order, depending on specific symptoms and body feedback. They also said they were sorry that I had basically been tortured up until this point and that the other people didn't seem to understand my injury in their prescriptions. They said that I present with a classically mechanical injury, in that my disc is bulging and sitting on the sciatic nerve... yeah.. I was trying to explain that! It feels good to finally be working with someone who believes that I am not just stuck in chronic pain but that I have a actual, physical problem.

I have re-applied to get more physical therapy as my charity waiver ran out after 2 weeks of working with the new therapists. Please pray that Providence will foot the bill for some more work with these folks. I have been able to move around more than the past 6 months but I still have some excruciating pains. I do, however, have some physical movements that are tools to push the disc back in place. The pains are coming from the disc protruding so when I have those pains I stop and work through the movements!

I love you all. You are amazing and have been so supportive on my journey to walking again. I continue on this journey and as I learn to walk again I think of and thank all of you for your kindness, prayers, wishes and support.

Had two good weeks where I was able to stand up straight, get to the pool for therapy and do some walking. For the past two weeks, however, I have been dealing with a bad flare up. It's very frustrating and though I have been very heavily focused on natural remedies flare ups like these make me wonder about the long term outlook for this injury and if I need to try more pharmaceuticals or other intervention. Still working everyday on stretching and building core strength. Still working on getting some other referrals and opinions on my images. Love you all and thanks for the continued prayers. <3

My name is Lindsay. I am 33 and I just graduated from law school. I want to help people gain access to justice. Unfortunately, I hurt my back very badly before I could get a job or insurance. Now I am completely disabled, unable to walk or sit and trying to get medical treatment with no money.


I have a hard time asking for help. The thought of asking friends and strangers for money for myself is foreign. Though I have raised money for many, many charities over my life time, most recently to send my sweet nieces to summer camp, I have never been one to accept handouts. I am, however, in a really hard spot right now.


A few wonderful friends have asked me to start a gofundme account so that they can help me raise money to get an MRI and for other treatment modalities. I resisted at first but after 6 months of being in pain and 3 months of being barely able to get to the bathroom or stand at all, I realize that I really need help. When I am well, I hope to continue to give back to my community. Thank you for considering how your contribution can help me get back on my feet, literally.
