Tina Williams


I am a registered nurse in an intensive care unit. I love what I do for a living. It's not just what I do, it's who I am. I AM a nurse. In 2011 I was assaulted by a patient. I was left with two herniated disks (L4-L5 and L5-S1). After 4 years in the workers compensation endless circle I am left with chronic pain. You see, workers compensation doesn't want to let me see a neurologist. They will however pay for me to see a pain management doctor. I don't want pain management. I don't want to take narcotics. I don't want to have anymore steroids injected into my body. I want relief. I want my life back. I want to play with my granhdren, swim, ride my bicycle. I have constant pain in my right hip and buttock. I have difficulty sleeping because of the pain, even with narcotics. Some days are ok and others are just bad bad bad. Because this has gone on for 4 years, I now have spinal stenosis ( narrowing of the holes in my spine that my nerves travel through) this is the cause of the constant pain in my right hip, buttock and both legs. I have talked with a neurologist and the laser spine institute. The cost of laser spine repair is about $75000. My insurance does not cover this and neither will workers compensation. I must raise the money myself. Please help me get my life back. Any amount will be GREATLY appreciated. Thank you for reading my story.
