* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

So, I have a spinal fracture. No kidding. Orthopedic says: physical therapy, lose weight, make sure I'm properly informed before seeing a chiropractor. Yoga is a plus. I say: oh my gosh oh my gosh wtf is this I don't even.

So I start PT next Monday. My pain isn't even all that bad - mostly a 3 or 4 - but it's constant and, quite frankly, scary. Continuing love and cookies would be fantastic.


I'm just starting to get to know you, but you are in my prayers dear lady.  I'll keep a candle lit for through PT and life in general.  I haven't had a spinal fracture, but I was incapacitated with my back last fall to the point of not being able to move so I do sympathize.  *hugs and cookies*
You can also find my ramblings at my blog although I\'m not the best at regular updates.  I\'m working on fixing that. Or look for me on FB here or Google+ here. :)

I know what it is like to live with constant back pain, so I can completely empathise with you. Take it nice and steady, do exactly as the Dr tells you, and have many hugs from me! {{{Ellen}}}

Thanks Dark Midnight - and thanks everyone else for your support.

Today (technically yesterday, at this hour) I went to see the orthopaedic's PA to go over my MRI results. They were... inconclusive. But I'm being referred to see a spine specialist who'll probably take more x-rays and possibly a CT scan of my back. We'll also be talking about whether surgery is a viable option at this point. People have constantly asked if I have any numbness/pain/tingling in my legs and I never knew why. (I don't.) But apparently there are super important nerves down there, and if this.. slippage with my back goes any further, things could get really rocky really fast.

Not to mention I'm hitting a rough depressive state and pretty much just want to curl into a ball. I've been wanting to poke around TC more often, especially since my irl socialization is rather limited with most of my college friends away for the summer, but I've been too depressed to try to climb out of my hole. Askdfk I don't even. Screw everything and your little dog too.

You'd be very suprised at the things that surgery could do for your back now. Are they referring you to an orthopedic pain specialist? That's who I was referred to and he has been an absolute Gods-send. I could never have managed as much as I do without him.

I also know what the depression is like, so if there is anything you need, even if it is just someone to vent at, I am always here for you. {{{Ellen}}}

(((hugs))) I'll be down for a day or so after my biopsy/surgery crap on Monday, so if you need someone to talk to, let me know. I can IM, Yahoo IM, I think MSN IM, and probably can MUX if I can remember how >.>
