      Its been a long while it seems since we have talked about our chronic pain and dealing with it.I was wondering how everyone is doing ?

       It seems there isnt anything that can help anymore with my pain.I have low back pain I had failed fusion surgery 10 yrs ago.Now I have 2 more blown discs in my thoracic spine and 2 in my neck.I’m only 48 and feel like I’m 70.I can barely walk or sit ,I’ve given up all the things I once enjoyed doing or my Dr tells me I cant do this or that.Even told me I can no longer garden.

       So what is left ? I’ve been hospitalized 3 times in the last 4 mo’s.And I’m so scared I wont be around to watch my 6 yr old grow into a woman.

       I’ve been put on every medication there is.And I’m sick of being sick.

       Does anyone else feel this way ? Have you found anything that can help ease a little of the pain ?  

       I’m hoping we can get back to talking about our pain and supporting one another. Theres no one better to talk to and understand than someone going through the same thing.I pray everyone has a painless night .

        • Hi Memas,

          I take a medication called Opana. If I didn’t have this medication I would be in the same boat you are in.  I started this group a while back, when I was at the point of no return. I was depressed, anxious, hated everything and everyone, all because of my pain.

          As for me currently, I’ve hit a bump in the road. I got my mind thinking I could wean off the meds and see if my pain was the same, or worse. I can’t begin to tell you how much I relied on my meds, and now that I’m off them (will be back on them soon) I know, and realize how much they really were doing for me.  It scares me to think that I thought I could detox/withdraw on my own. I could have died. But when you are in pain, you do some crazy shit!! (Pardon the language)

          Keep me posted :)

          Have a pain 9as much as possible) free day.

          God Bless
