I had to re-read that first sentence to let it sink in Mikey.  The finality of a fighter being told they are out for good is heavy stuff.  I know you don't want pity, but I feel for you anyway.  Best of luck with the new challenges ahead of you.

Mikey, I'll be contacting you later this year. We need to get together and do another story. Or at least bs. Really enjoyed talking with you last time.

Mikey

Dr's are only human get a second or a third opinion and look for other ways to deal with this. not saying you will be able to fight again but there is probably an other way to treat it to some extent

I agree, but Ive had lots of opinions, Ive been patient on waiting for things to get done, I don't want to take Pain Meds the rest of my life, I dont want to hurt anymore........ I understand the damage, I deal with it all day everyday,

I can still teach at this point, my Dr does not want me to, but he understands.

This is not going to kep me down, Ive been down so many times, I always make it back up.......Im thankful for the life I have. I have lost hope in a lot of things though.
Sometimes hope is all we have.

Best of luck Mikey. I am with you on not wanting to take pain pills for ever. There are all kinds of Holistic pain supressors.

Veria.com is a great site that really explains which herbs you can use and the proper way to use them. I am sure there are alot more out there, but this place seems to be exclusivly holistic.


always a fan

Mikey, was awesome watching you fight over the years, thanks for everything. Like somebody else said at least you can teach and pass on your skills to many other people.

Best of luck bro.
