It was a meningioma tumor. The procedure was basically them drilling holes in my brain, cutting the bone in the way of the tumor and then getting as much of it out as they could. I was told that they got 95% of it. I just wanna stop hurting, be able to work again, drive again,etc. Yes I’ve had suicidal thoughts because of the pain and not getting anywhere with my doctor or anyone.

Things may be tough and when days seem unbearable….just take it minute by minute. I want to provide you with this link in case you need to talk to someone. http://suicidepreventionlifeline.org/

Keep fighting. I’m sending strength and peace your way!
