Updates;Oct 12th, 2004
Well I do Not have good news after my doctors visit today (October 12th, 2004). The Two MRIs I had one for my neck and the other for my lower back.
I just found out that I have a herniated disk in my lower back between L4 - L5 (fourth MRI October 8th, 2004), and my neck at which I knew I had is C5 - C6 (third MRI October 5th, 2004). Doctor Wilson explained to me that my lower ruptured disk (herniation) is very bad and there is not enough room for my spinal cord nerves to go through that part of my L4 -L5 disk. They are going to start me on very light therapy right away, and I see the neurologist again December 1st, 2004 at 11:30AM.
Dr. Wilson is a Very nice doctor and explained my MRI pictures of my neck and lower back in very easy detail so I could understand it. He gave me the MRI pictures and I am going to scan them unto my hard-drive to save.
I know know why I have a hard time sleeping, two herniations in my back are causing me a lot of pain!

My Lawyers office just called right now February 15th, 2005 at 4:50PM pst.
They're re-scheduling my Pre-Trail Hearing for this Friday February 18th, 2005 at 10:30AM pst. I spoke with Doyle there, and he told me my SSDI hearing is March 9th, 2005!
Please Pray I get my SSDI, I need a place of my own to live at where my mother and I can visit and she can stay with me. Right now my mother cannot stay with me because I live with someone and sleep on my futon in the living room of a one bedroom apartment. Plus my mother and I really don't care for this person I am staying with. My mom and I know it's better than living in the streets. My mom Lives in Northern, California near Eureka.
My mom is moving from the apartment she moved to last year because of the mold and it's too much water in this apartment. So, God gave her another home for next Month. It's bigger and up on a hill in Fortuna, California.
HELP, Please Pray I get my SSDI!! I have two badly ruptured disks in my back at C5-C6 in my neck and one that's really bad and worse is L4-L5, because this one is Ruptured both sides on my Spinal Cord!

I am Still Very Sick with Pneumonia and have been sleeping a lot. This is the Fifth Time I've had Pneumonia! The Reason Why I get it so easy is below;
I get Pneumonia Very easy due to my Birth Defect in my Chest area Rib Cage that was Rebuilt. At the same surgery, both my Lungs and Heart were operated on.
Individuals with Moderate to Severe Pectus Birth Defects
may experience shortness of breath (due to the lung compression), exercise intolerance, chest pain (due to the ribcage not being able to expand), costochondrial pain (due to inflammation of the costochondrial joint), arrhythmias, increased asthmatic symptoms, susceptibility to inflammatory illness in the lungs and Pneumonia.
Please Read the Information I post about Pneumonia
, this is a Very Serious!!
Okay, I also seen my Lawyer today about getting ready for my Social Security Disability Insurace Hearing March 9th. I need to get into Therapy right away, I am Severely Depressed still, even though I am on 150mg of zoloft a day now. So far the increased dose has not made a difference in my Depression. I have been Depressed a lot growning up and all through my life. I might have Bipolar Disorder, I need a doctor to check this out for me. I also had to Email the Hospital where I had my Severe Birth Defect Surgery in 1965 with Dr. Burer. I need the Records and Reports of my Entire surgery and hospital stay at Los Angeles Orthopaedic Hospital Foundation. So, I Emailed them When I got home from my lawyers office.
I will see my lawyer again before March 9th. My lawyer told me today I have a Really hard Judge in my case. Drats... My Neuorologist doctor says I am faking my pain and all my problems on his report GRRRRRR. I did NOT choose to be born with a Severe Birth Defect, Color Blind, or Arthritis in my body. Nor did I choose to have two Ruptured disks in my back that hurt me a lot. I did not choose depression. Or that I get Pneumoia very easy.
I am Very Stressed, Depressed, Disabled and Hurt. I NEED to move from where I am living soon. Please Lord Jesus HELP me I pray this in Jesus Name Amen!
I need to rest now I am super tired, I took I Vicodin pain pill and my Sleeping pill about 10 minutes ago. I cannot handle anymore Stress!!!!!!!

I need to get out from where I am living! My room-mate is calling me a Control Freak and other not so nice words. This is Abuse and I cannot take this anymore!
She is into Porn and Bestiality on her computer thats in her bedroom, YUCK! Her car broke down, so I let her drive my Jeep Grand Cherokee once in a while. This NEEDS to stop now. I Paid cash for my Jeep and Not for a convicted felon to drive to bars and ect.. She thinks she don't have to believe all in the Bible as I believe, she don't discern right from wrong!
I am so Stressed because my Doctor is NOT supporting my Social Security Disability Claim! I Emailed her last night hoping to have just one little Report done for my SSDI Lawyer, She will NOT do this for me. Below is what I sent to my doctor;
Sorry, If I confused you.
I still have Pneumonia and it takes me along time to
get over this. This is the Fifth time I've had
Pneumonia, I get it easy due to my Birth Defect.
Anyhow, I do NOT like the Report that Dr. Reed Wilson
wrote up about me. He said I am psychosomatic and that
all my pain is all in my head. This is NOT true, I get
migraine headaches from my C5-C6 disk rupture in my
neck. Plus I get cold chills down the middle of my
back, and my right shoulder and back hurts a lot from
the C5-C6 rupture. My L4-L5 disk rupture in my lower
back is worse than my neck rupture. This L4-L5 disk
rupture is pressing on two sides of my spinal cord. I
get a lot of pain from this. I do NOT fake any of my
I had no control being born with a severe case of
Pectus Excavatum, mine was fused to my back bone. My
entire rib cage was rebuilt back in 1965, plus my
heart and lungs were operated on at the same time.
This is why the hospital kept me unconscious for four
of five days after my surgery. Plus I was born Color
Blind and with arthritis.
I need a report filled out by you before the end of
this month. My Social Security Disability Insurance
Lawyer gave me a Physical Residual Function Capacity
Report for you to fill out for me. My Social Security
Hearing is March 9th, 2005 in downtown Portland.
I want to bad to be on my own again! The reason I want
to move to Astoria, Oregon once I get my SSDI, this is
because. I want to get as far from Portland where my
Ex lives. Plus I grew up on the Northern California
Coast. I love the Pacific Ocean. I'll love the smaller
town as Astoria to a lot! They Even have a
Scandinavian Festival every year in Astoria, since I
am Second Generation Norwegian in the USA, I feel like
I would fit in really well.
__________________________________Sara My doctor replied;
I am sympathetic to your plight. I believe you hurt and have pain
But to some extent I agree with Dr Wilson. I think there are some psychological issues in your life.
I understand your desire for having SSI but the desire to have it cannot enter into the decision as to whether one qualifies for it.
I intentionally do not do SSI evaluations anymore because it created too much bitterness between my patients and myself. It is too hard to be a patient advocate and to try to apply the SSI guidelines fairly and impartially.
I am sorry I cannot be more help but for me it is a no win situation.
I do wish you the best
I am so Stressed more because of my Doctor and Very Depressed! I cannot ever think right. I am so sick with Pneumonia, and my doctor will Not see me after I was at OHSU Emergency February 7th, 2005. The doctors at OHSU told me to see my doctor three days after their treatment at the hospital. This never happened, even though I aske my doctor via Email twice what should I do!!
I don't feel like going on with life anymore. I know God isn't finished with me yet. I am so tired and no health or drive to do anything. I need Therapy again really soon!!!
I am Very Stressed, Depressed, Disabled and Hurt!!! I NEED to move from where I am living soon. Please Lord Jesus HELP me I pray this in Jesus Name Amen!
My doctor is NOT supporting me for my Social Security Disability Claim. :'(
February 21st, 2005
This is the Email I sent back to my Doctor Sara after she replied to mine;
I am Depressed..... I am not happy either.. Whatever
about Dr. Wilson..
I am not in good health right now, I am still have Pneumonia.
I was suppose to see you when I was after OHSU
Emergency three days, but, I never heard from you!
These are the reason why I get Pneumonia;
I get Pneumonia Very easy due to my Birth Defect in my
Chest area Rib Cage that was Rebuilt. At the same
surgery, both my Lungs and Heart were operated on.
Individuals with Moderate to Severe Pectus Birth
Defects may experience shortness of breath (due to the
lung compression), exercise intolerance, chest pain
(due to the ribcage not being able to expand),
costochondrial pain (due to inflammation of the
costochondrial joint), arrhythmias, increased
asthmatic symptoms, susceptibility to inflammatory
illness in the lungs and Pneumonia.
I DON'T fake my Pain at all!!!!! One of the Reason
why I walk with a walker roll. This is because about
10 years past I was Ice Skate and broke my Knee Cap
and the doctors did not much to help this either. I
have pain in my Ribs a lot, this is because is rebuilt
in 1965. Doctors told my Parents and me the pain in
ribs is called Growing Pains. So, me and my Parents
thought okay. Now though, I still have Pain a lot of
my ribs. I am crying right now and cannot think right.
I am so tired of doctors and hospitals!! I spent
enough time in them....
So you cannot see me for my Pneumonia at all?! The
report I have is very small and you cannot help me
with this either?! Dr. Wilson is NOT to tell you about
me about my psychological issues, this because this in
NOT why seen him about my pain in spinal!! He is a Neurologist
doctor, NOT a Psychologist at all!
I am not bitter with you at all. I am just hurt as
all. I never would sue you. That was the room-mate
this, I did not know she sent you that, I am sorry.
I don't what live anymore. I am NOT liar about my
pain. Plus I am NOT drugs for pain Pills you give me.
A Orthopaedic Doctor told me I needed a Lawyer when my
fist MRI about my rupture disk at C5-C6. I still do
not know why he told me this to the day, believe me I
even asked him why. I have seen so many doctors in my
life, I am sick of everything..........
BTW, there is a lot to my conditions, I have tired to put them all here at Kristi Ann's Haven and might have forgot a few details, that is all. As far as my C5-C6 disk rupture in my neck. I remember now, that I was visiting my parents back around 1995 or 1996. My parents have a horse named Tilly, well, my dad and mother were leading her from a creek. My mother said get on the back of Tilly and we will lead you back to the house. I got on Tilly bare back and as we started to move, I fell off of her unto my right shoulder and neck on the ground. I believe that made my disk rupture worse in my neck.
Love Always, o/
I don't remember my password to change it, sorry.
