Quote from: MRI report
FINDINGS:
The vertebral bodies are normal in height and alignment. There is disc dehydration and disc space narrowing L3-4, L4-5, and L5-S1. Conus is unremarkable at T12-L1.

Paraspinal soft tissues and the retroperitoneal structures are unremarkable.

L1-2, and L2-3 levels are unremarkable.

At L3-4, there is circumferential bulging disc. There is hypertrophy of the fact joints resulting in 4mm narrowing on the right side. Annular tear noted right paracentral aspect.

At L4-5, focal central posterior disc protrusion with superimposed disc bulge noted. There is facet joint arthropathy resulting in a foraminal narrowing bilaterally.

At L5-S1, a broad based central and right paracentral elongated appearing disc protrusion noted appearing to be compressing of the descending nerve on the right. The protruded disc measures 1.2cm x 2cm in width. There is superimposed generalized disc bulge resulting in foraminal stenosis bilaterally. The protruded disc extrudes posteriorly as one on the right compressing upon the right sided descending nerve. There is narrowing of the right lateral recess.

My back is a little fucked up. The area around the sciatic nerve running from my lower back through my right buttock down my right leg to my big toe hurts like a toothache. Stretching and yoga and sitting certain ways seem to help. Sitting in a car seat for extended periods is torture. The pain is still there when I go to sleep at night and when I wake up in the morning, and so apparently it needs some kind of professional treatment in order to really go away.

I haven't been physically active for a while, although I had been up until about a year or two ago, so I can't think of anything recent that I would've done to injure it, unless sitting on your ass all day in front of the computer counts.

I don't have health insurance. My parents will be paying for this out of pocket, for which I will owe them big time. And that's assuming I can even find a specialist around here that will treat a self-pay patient.

Fuck.

I had some really nasty sciatic pain due to slipping a disk in my back last year, hugs bro, paying for the regular visits to the physio without health insurance also sucked.

To get better I had to do back and hamstring stretches each day and went in for regular visits to the physio where they would use this machine that stretches your spine to encourage the disks to slide back into place and also had lots of massage to try and press things back into place

Just keep up whatever exercises you get assigned and it'll be worth it when the pain goes away quicker

I had an ultrasound done on my liver yesterday. I figured it was going to be fatty and wasn't surprised when the Taiwanese doctor said there was something that looked like a tumor. He said it is most likely benign. He was also kind enough to show the difference between the darkness of my healthy kidneys flecked with points and tendrils of light vs. the dull brightness of my liver to give me a visual comparison.

This plus an X-ray of my left knee to make sure there were no cracks in my left knee cap to appease myself and those close to me that there was no bone damage caused by a stupid jump I made while traversing rocks and small boulders in a river with my daughter last Sunday outside of the Cat Village. Plus quick consultations from two doctors and a blood test that ended up showing I don't have hepatitis or diabetes. All of this cost less than $12 US, since I'm on the Taiwanese health care plan. So, there was at least some financial and situational silver lining to my last 2 medical visits.

I'm supposed to go in for a CT scan next week to pinpoint the tumor. Whether or not it is for a potential biopsy or surgery, I'm not too concerned with as long as it's OPT.

I'm 16 old. When I was really young my father drink a lot, then from 6 to now my mother drink ( sometimes father too ... ) and I do my best but ... I just can't, can't do anything what could help or something. Now my father hit the walls argumenting with mum  (I hear that)and mother is crying ... 15 minuts ago we were eating the supper ( parents was drunk ... ) and they started name-calling each other and arguments ... and all that shit. I just standed and take father up ( he is smaller than me, but stronger) and telled him that he should sorry mother, then I told mother to too sorry father and take them to hug eachother, but that didn't work.
Now father yell at mother and I just sit in my room and listen music... It's not the first time, but today i just 'cracked' in myself ... and I just can stand with that.

Don't let yourself be dragged down by your environment, you are still young and don't have to end up violent or unhappy like your family. Rather than getting into drugs or alcohol work diligently at increasing your skills and health, then in a few short years you will be a heroic man, one with a strong character who has come out of harsh situations stronger than before.
You might not be able to change how your family act, but that doesn't mean you are useless, it means you are trying to change the wrong people, you can change yourself, and go against the odds. Don't become bitter or resentful of your family, try to show them there is hope in life through who you become.
Some people play life on hard mode, don't give up

Quote from: Romans5: 3-5
3 We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance. 4 And endurance develops strength of character, and character strengthens our confident hope of salvation. 5 And this hope will not lead to disappointment. For we know how dearly God loves us, because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love.

Don't let what happens around you affect who you are. Stay away from becoming what your parents are doing and falling into taking drugs and alcohol all the time. Keep softly trying to resolve your parents arguments and just love them for who they are as well and it may bring the light of what their doing to the surface. Dont dislike who you are, its destructive thinking. You're young and able to change your circumstances and grow to be an awesome person.

Its sad to hear of your circumstances man, keep your chin up.

Same here, makes me nervous how close war could be right now. We could wake up tomorrow and find part of America is gone. What happened in boston is terrible but who knows what else is to come?

there are historians who claim the "war on terror" is already world war III (or world war IV, the cold war being the 3rd)

Anything specific happen?

If it's any consolation, even the coolest most super radical people out there have usually experienced major rejection at some point. Keep calm and find something to cheer you up.

I was disappointed that it it went badly with a cute girl. Things are kind of shitty at home too. Of course things gets exaggerated when you're really drunk, which I was last night.
