HI CAT... hope you are having a pain free day! Anyway, my hubby was never really much help around the house until I completely lost all of my hair. I had Alopecia Areata... It comes from stress. At that point my hubby realized that in order to get my hair back I had to stop doing everything that needed to be done and carrying the weight of the entire house on my shoulders (maybe that's how I got this neck problem.. LOL) Anyway, at that point he really did start pitching in. Hubby tells me that it was my fault for never asking for help and assuming that I could handle the weight of the world. Well, part of it was my fault. I now deligate my authority with my hubby and my kids... when they don't do it... neither do I... instead I get in the car and I take a ride to a park with my book. By the time I get home... it's all done. Because they know that I will go back out and not come home until it is done. I hope this helps you a bit. Hubby is 100% better now that ever! Take care, hope you have a GREAT DAY!

Well CAT... I just started point stim therapy and I will tell you that I have finally gotten a Good Night's Sleep... therefore, I am smiling again! I am afraid to think that I will get all better now, but it seems to release the nerve from the spinal cord a bit and therefore, I don't get the constant pain in my shoulder blade and it has eased up on the numbness down my arm. I have stopped the pain killers because as I learned with the hair disorder, pills just don't help, they cause more problems. I grew my hair back with inner strength and changes in my life. I also had OCD (cleaning) and I realized that only ME, MYSELF AND I could make a difference in MY LIFE! Everyone else can kiss my a**!!!!!... LOL... Take care and thanks for thinking of me!

Hey there CAT... yes I am back to working full time... I have my moments and luckily my boss is a great man and he is so very understanding. He can tell by the look on my face if I am having a painful day and he'll tell me to go home and rest. After six years, he knows me well and he really is a genuine person. Anyway, the point stim is really working for me. My Physical Therapist suggested it when nothing else was working and the traction was just horrible, it hurt more than helped. The point stim sounds like i'm getting a tattoo and it send electrodes (that I can really feel) down my arms, elbow and hand. It's supposed to untangle the nerves. I must admit it really has made a difference. Maybe you should check into it. Forget about that there cleaning and worry as much about yourself as you do your house... the way I look at it is... I have 22 years left to pay it off, the mess will be there then too! Good luck and I hope you feel better real soon. Keep me posted, we have so much in common :-)
