Truly you've seen icons more scary than mine!!

My little cyborg face is just a part man/part machine who's a mean bastard that's ready to take on the world.

Kind of like my true self! :) Well, except for the cyborg part. I have two ruptured disks in my spine.. so maybe someday I will be part man/part machine. But as of now... I'm purely made of just flesh, bones, and blood.

Part man; part machine

Honestly, I hope that you can get those repaired sooner then later. I'm assuming that they haven't surgically removed the nerves from those disks... so I can deffinately relate to the pain you must be/have gone through.

They have little lab generated spinal disks now... :-) you should look into getting some.

If you don't mind my asking... how did you rupture them??

Re: Part man; part machine

I don't want anybody cutting into my spine and my nerves until the process is as perfected as removing an appendix.

Until then, I deal with the pain in my own way... and it works most of the time. Except when the weather changes... when it starts to rain, by back feels like it's being crushed by 1000 pounds of weight.

It's just the change in air pressure... normally, disks contain the pressure inside - but since mine are ruptured, the pressure can some out or go in, depending on if the air pressure is high or low. Sunny days I'm fine, but rainy days put me into great pain.

It's just life... we've got to deal with it in our own way.

Re: Part man; part machine

Yup yup. :-)

It isn't that bad so I've heard. :-) Just have to get a really good doctor is all. :-)
