I had my cortison shots on Monday and it changed my liefe.my symptoms got all better straight afterwards...my balance is so much better, so is my pain, my vision...and I am no longer sensitive to light and sound!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Wow I had to give it a try and went for summer sales and went crays...I was smiling like a child on Christmas. And yesterday I got my invitation for first rehab meeting on the 26th...oh words cant desscribe how happy and positive I am again....freedom freedom...what a joy getting closer of being myself again. I hope everybody is alright and has a great day

thanks everybody for ur thoughts and wishes. I mean I am still not alright, but hey i better after one session of shots. i can join little activities again and not waking upo crying of pain is a great difference. Oh man.I went to the hairdresser today.didnt cut my hair in a year...I called beforehands telling them I wont be able to flex backwards for washing my hair: The girl was really nice who cut my hair and was treating me so softly.i alsmost fell asleep.afterwards the bus I took had an accident.so I decided to walk home.soon after I saw a man who already looked from far away to me and I knéw there was something wrong so I crossed the street.doing that he showed me his private piece and was touching it. I was sooooo disgusted and it has happened to me quite often already. I just really walked fast.I was so scared he followed me as I also already passed an intent of raping. I was so happy that the police came and I stopped them and told them to get this pervert thing...I hate people like that I swear...I was so happy to close the door behind me at home and being safe...how scarry...oh man

  OMG Iris, how scary....so glad u got home safely too....there r soooo many perverts out there and it is diff to go out when u have obvious issues, like I walk with a cane I feel like a target....it is very scary to go out a lone, it is best to go with someone else.

So, did u like ur haircut?

yes I do like my haircut :-)) and I am relaxed again...but u do understand what I feel and the strange thing was it was light around 1 pm!!! I hate people taking advantage of less stronger in any kind and I do understand that u feel unsure with a cane, because unfortunately there are so many bad people out there...btw i bought myself a litlle pillow filled with corn.u can heat it up in the microwave and it gives so much relief on neck and muscles. thanks selma for understanding me...big hug for our forum mom <3

So glad to hear you got out of a bad sisuation.  That must of been so scary.  There was a sisuation around here yesterday when a man appartently had his car break down and a woman tried to help push the car needless to say only for the man to try to rape her.  She got away thank goodness and the police was called. I try to help other's, but having a sisuation like this come up makes us think twice beause we never know what others try to do  It makes it sad for those people who really need our helpk but no longer can give them the help when we have bad people making choices lke his .  So glad you are o.k.
Linda :)

I know you have had encounters with rude weird people there before, is it bad parts of town?! Its scary. Please go out with a friend or pepperspray or mace, something. Hoping you are havin a great day. Do you get more *****? If so how often? You have cranial instability, did I remember correctly? If so, do the plan on surgically fixing this?

i already live in one of the closest parts in barcelona. the probleme is these people are everywhere. on my erasmus in salamanca I had 3 men doing the same thing!!! and the intent of rape was in germany by a family father who me and my ex got to know because we had dogs and made friends...he wanted to pick me up for dinner with his family as my ex was working.I swear I didnt suspect anything as I saw a loving father in him!!! I was so wrong he drove direction wood and started to touch me and i opened the car door and wanted to jump out of the car...it was in the middle of nowhere...he even touched me in font of his child which joined the car later!!! the worse is that somehow u as a woman feel guilty afterwards...well I told my ex later...and he made jokes about it...well that was the day I decided he will be my ex!!!
my craniocervical instability is not extreme, they dont see need to operate and will start rehab now on thursday.i do have still pain...but its better...but sometimes its anyhow frustrating...you all know :´)
