    Hey guys & gals. It is not just here. Every chat/forum that use to be busy has pretty much died off. I'm not sure why or where people go I honestly wish I did know. As always my pain fluctuates and right now it is one of those times when my legs goes numb after about five minutes so not much fun going on for me sadly. Since I"m back in the dating world it is very fun to have to explain to people...most run as fast as possible lol But that is just part of this life. It is what it is. I hope everyone is having a good Halloween.
    Ah, the old legs numb thing. Know it well. Isn't it fun.

    Yes, dating. Wifey died of cancer back when I was -- what 35 -- right after all my neuro stuff started. That combined with all the spinal issues gave me an excuse to be less than responsible with alcohol. Funny, after some 16 years, I think .. and I know this is tempting fate .. I may have that beast stuffed in the bottle, so to speak

    Anyway, did the dating thing for a long time. But, I think women are more understanding on the whole. Besides, being raised as a "real boy" (just like Pinocchio), I never complain to anyone about my numb, burning tingling legs, arms, hands, but if a woman sticks around long enough, they figure it out. That's when the troubles usually arise (why don't you communicate -- that's a favorite).

    Anyway, pretty much given the whole thing up. And, with the alcohol use it was not going well anyway. But, having been pretty much sober for mucho months (whoo--hoo -- celebrate when it has been several years), I have given it some thought, but then thought again. No chance.

    Anyway, just one of my many rambles. I do sincerely wish you success!!

    Hi Mark! With the transition back in 07 or so Rockhound became gracie. I am glad to see a familiar name here!! I guess Thoracic Park disappeared because I haven't received an email from there in several years, unless I got dropped. I just don't know. I was thinking about you yesterday because my son mentioned TOS and surgery for it. I know he has thoracic issues but I really think his worst pain is from his blown C5-6 & 6-7. I was thinking about trying to track you down to talk with him before he even approached his orthopaedic surgeon about his thoracic. Anyway, hi and I hope you are doing well.

    Brigitte, I realize it's been 6 years since you posted about your arm pain, but...were you able to identify and resolve the problem? Your symptoms sound identical to mine when my C6-7 went symptomatic on me. I wound up with a 2-level artificial disc replacement that totally resolved the problems. We already knew C5-6 needed to be replaced and I had a bit of a go round with the surgeon over C6-7 because it looked fine in the MRI. I told him I trusted what my body was telling me over the technology. He insisted on a discogram before he would do 6-7. I had sworn I would never undergo another discogram in this lifetime but gave in. Turned out it was nearly painless because 6-7 was so shot it wouldn't pressurize and the dye simply ran out! He didn't even have the needle out before he said, "We're doing a two level"! I think he learned a lesson that day. I hope your problem is resolved, as well, and you are doing well. Being a Spiny isn't much fun, that's for sure. I was very active here back around 2000-2005 as Rockhound. Still have spine problems but priorities kind of changed after my husband had a serious motorcycle accident.

    Anybody home in this bar?

    The buncha empty stools says the place must be closed.

    Beerkeep, pour me a cold one... a little more head, please. I like a white mustache when I imbibe...

    of course you did... I thought so, too.

    Got any more peanuts? Yeah, the ones in the shells....

    Because I like them better, that's why! And it keeps barefoot people at bay...

    Yeah, of course I throw them on the floor! Heck, the janitor needs to have a job, too!

    More bubbly, Bubba... my mustache is gone.

    Hell, NO! Well, the Sox broke a 9 game "L" streak and knocked off those highfalutin' Northsiders... but they've gone to crap since 2005.

    Prob'ly the Buckeyes...

    They've been spoilin' for a NatChamp game for a coupla years now... I think they'll do it. But, Big M could make it int'resting...

    Harbaugh has a magic touch... kinda like a "Midas" touch...

    Regardless, it's time the SEC had some real tussles come playoff time...

    Okay, I'm outta here... thanks for the chatter... keep the loose stuff... with the empty pace tonight, you need every coin you can pick up off the floor...don't forget to check under the seats in the booths.
