Pain in the back

I realize that it has been a while since my last update. The previous posting makes it look like all is well in my world. But as it turns out, I ended up giving all of my casino winnings to my family. As usual their needs seem to come up every time I get a little money in the bank, which explains my pitiful financial situation. I have also been suffering from a back injury since the beginning of the year. Up until last week, my medical expenses have been covered under workmen's compensation. But now it looks like they will not cover any more of my medical expenses. I had to hire a lawyer this week to try and get them to make some kind of settlement. They are supposed to let me see a doctor of my choice to see if surgery is needed. As soon as they heard surgery might be involved, they decided to stop making payments. Of course I don't have money to hire a lawyer. He will get a chunck of any settlement. Hopefully I will not get scammed on this deal too.
