Well it was a quick but painful incident that happened only 2 months ago while (unfortunately but true) playing with my 2 girls in a pool. In short I basically "woke up the sleeping painful discs" in my neck and as I result have been struggling daily with severe pain in my neck, arms and shoulders as result of the nerve damage and muscle weakness. I average about 2-4 hours a sleep every night as I can't rest my head comfortably, and I wake up constantly with numb fingers. I have been "managing the pain" for weeks but I refuse to believe this is they way I am going to live for the next months and years ahead.
I suppose this is very familiar path for me and it has virtually once again rocked my world. Those who know my personal life , know 2018 has been a new venture to say the least as I have been adopting to single fatherhood and now this condition of mine has been yet another major setback. I am basically back to sedentary, and I want my life back! I have been so fortunate to have gained back the life I had since my back surgery in 2015. As I went to Germany and had the worlds best spine surgeon provide something for me that NO Dr here in the states could do or would be able to do. So for me, I don't see any other option of having any other Dr operate on my spine again.
Friends who know me really well would say I am a fairly humble guy, and I don't know how to ask other people for money and typically don't like to ask others for help.
But, I am kinda in a bind financially and if anyone is kind enough to take a second to help me out in anyway, I would be forever so grateful for anything you feel you can or would be able to do. The surgical costs will be upwards of $40,000.00 and then of course travel and expenses.
Thank you all for reading my post, god bless!
