|"Tina Lacing Up Her Cat Shoes" Oil on Canvas. 30" x 24"|
Tina experiences a pain that is best described as sending volts of electricity throughout her body. This chronic pain is a constant for her which means 24 hours a day x 7 days a week. It is the kind of pain that stops her from breathing, and causes migraines and severe upper back pain as well. The back pain is due to plexiform fibromas on her spine. Unfortunately, no physician will operate on those. Tina does not take narcotics, but has been begging her local university hospital to get the trial drug. Calling monthly, a year later, the drug trial became a reality. Tina just started taking the magic blue pills which is her last hope for pain relief. So far she has had good results.
