About me:
90% Service Connected Disabled Veteran, Hypertension (Have really high cholesterol, getting checked for Coronary Artery Disease due to being constantly fatigued, and easily winded), Bad feet bilaterally (Pes Planus, Tarsal Tunnel Release Performed, Plantar Fasciitis), bad ankles bilaterally (found out that I have "MAJOR ABNORMALITY" of my Talonavicular Joint, i.e. part of the three components that make up the ankle) and even though it was on my exit physical I was denied service connection (have claim pending now hopefully they will finally get this one right), bad knees bilaterally RPPS and Chondromalacia  (have had a lateral release and knees continue to get worse) just found out that I have artifacts in both knees from my last x-ray that I had done recently the doctor said that I might be a candidate for knee replacements (I have an appointment with the Orthopedic surgeon coming up to hopefully get MRI's of both knees to see what is really going on and get it taken care of), herniated disk L5-S1 that has since re-herniated and is pressing on my S1 nerve root, bulging disk L3,L4, bone spurs osteophytes C5,C6,C7 (feels like I have a boot constantly pressing on my back between my should blades the times when it doesn't feel like someone's stabbing me with an ice pick), Depression, PTSD among other things. That's the short list. I just wish I could start feeling better. It sucks to not have energy and be in constant pain. What sucks is that I've gotten all of this education and because of my disabilities I can't hold down gainful employment. I've got a B.S. Justice and Public Safety with minors in Corporate Security / Security Administration and Paralegal Studies - Auburn University Montgomery and an MSM- Master of Science in Management with concentration in Human Resources Management- Troy University Montgomery.
