I am totally humbled. I have had back issues on and off for about 10 years, but I never thought I would be here. Check me out, it's a cane! The most relief that I've had for my back pain is with something called a nerve block. To make it simple, the doctor sticks a needle in the nerves in your back to numb the pain. Following my treatment this week, I've had lots of left over nerve pain that shoots up and down from my back to my right ankle.
I think I look like a goober deluxe with this cane. But that is the totally wrong thing to say to those who use some sort of medical device for mobility. My daughter has Cerebral Palsy and is in a wheelchair. People that are in wheelchairs aren't dorks. I think this totally has to do with how we view ourselves. I never pictured myself as someone who has a cane. The truth is that we really need to be thankful for what we do have and not take it for granted.
Having said all that, I do believe in healing! Most of the ministry of Jesus was Him going about and healing all who were oppressed by the devil (Acts 10:38). I believe that our God wants my daughter to walk, my wife healed of MS, my back to be healed, and for you to be whole as well!! So don't give up! Keep your eyes on Him, and please don't look at the goober with the cane!
