ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
I wake up every day not being able to feel my right hand or close it. Standing up out of bed is a lesson in pain. I spend most of my days resting in a chair. It all started five years ago in a car accident. And things seem to have snowballed. The doctors aren’t really sure what’s causing all of my symptoms. I have tried every type of therapy you can think of. I am on a limited budget due to my inability to hold down a job. I rely on my husband, who has been wonderful through this whole thing. But getting by on one income is not easy. As you know. I hobbled around like an 80-year-old woman. And I am only 51. I have been strong my whole life. It is very difficult for me to concede to my inabilities. I was a dog groomer and also rode horses professionally. I miss being able to do even the simplest things let alone get on a horse or groom a dog. Even walking out into my kitchen takes extreme effort and lots of my energy. I live with heating pad and ice packs in the kindness of others.
