I really liked your comments about pain. I myself never experienced real bad pain, even though I had 4 children, 2 c-sectioned, in 8 years and some backpack, but the real pain came
now in the last 10 years. Now I know, what it does to you. I withdraw from social functions, have no pleasure in life, and try to get off opioids, because they do help, but I do not like the dependency, which comes with it. But the pain is there almost 24 hours, and I have become more housebound and now even in bed more hours. I have arthritis in my spine, headaches ,
had an AVM operated with open brain surgery, and other bone problems.
Tried to cut down on the Opioids, but it is hard, after several years. I am 73 yrs old, and thought my hubby and I had some good years left.
Now the depression has started. Any suggestions?
