    inforn43, I am not sure who you were referring to with "REAL PAIN". I have been in healthcare for over 25 years and believe me I know "REAL PAIN". I have had enough back pain and nerve pain to last a lifetime. I wouldn't have had 2 back surgeries and multiple ESI's unless I was in pain.

It has been a long road and I am finally in a new job and doing well so far. I am not sure what I should have done different but I hope I never have to go over a year without permanent employment again.
