Dec 28, 2018 · Chronic Pain members - Welcome, please introduce yourself in Chronic Pain

@karen00 thanks for writing to me five days ago about the things we share in common. i think about you. sorry you took a bad fall. i hope things go well for you at the doctors and that you did not suffer any damage. have been walking with a walker for two years and know you can fall even with one. sorry you are in so much pain. my prayers are with you for that doctor s appointment. let us know how you are doing.

hi majake. glad you reached out to us. i have degenerative dis c disease and scoliosis, along with other problems. you know the pain this causes. i take hydrocodone for the pain, but it only helps take the edge off, does not really relieve the pain. the pain and the inactivity they causes add to my chronic depression. i do not go out of the house except for doctors appointments because the pain and effort are too great. i live with my family so i do have company. i try to keep busy. i like to watch dvds, i am a voracious reader, and i really like to do needlework, especially needlepoint. these activities help in two ways. they help to take my mind off the pain as much as possible and they help with the depression by keeping me busy. i do not know which is worse, the physical or the emotional pain. i have an outreach counselor who comes to the house once a month to talk, and it gives me an outlet to talk about my problems. do you have any treatment for your physical pai n? what do you do about your depression which can be just as bad? hope some of this helps. and keep reaching out.
