I’m Kat (Katrina on a Sunday!), and I live in North East Scotland with my husband, 2 bengal girls (Fergie and Jessie) and our 3 working spaniel gun dogs, Bubba, Hamish and Maggie.
I enjoy being outdoors, (which comes with the territory of owning 3 working dogs!), I love to get lost in nature, and I love to be at the beach, its my safe place.
Living with Chronic Pain is something i never thought id have to go through. Its changed my world.
I had my first discectomy back in 2011, which was classed as failed 5 weeks after. I have had all the spinal injections available, all of which failed too! In 2014, i underwent my 2nd discectomy and also had a facet joint removed.
Since then I have been diagnosed with:-
- Failed Back Syndrome
- Degenerative Disc Disease
- Facet Joint Hypertrophy
- Enlarged Facet Joints
- Facet Joint Arthritis
- Lumbar Spinal Stenosis
- Hip Bursitis
- SI joint arthritis
Everything is a learning curve, some days are not easy, and others are slightly better, but I hope to share my story, my every day life and to connect with others going through the same issues – remember you are NOT alone!
Wanna hear what ive got to say – give me a follow!
