What do you do when you are not believed? I have been to at least 7 primary doctors over the years and have been suffering in constant pain since childhood. At the age of 47, and pain in my whole body I am ready to give up. I'm sure my VA doctor means well, it is just that you cannot measure how much pain someone is in. I tell him that I cannot function in this pain. He gives me pain pills and tells me to get a job. After trying for 6 months to find something I can do while sitting without typing, I am thinking that I need to be with God instead. I am a burden to my family and they can't understand me either. I don't blame anyone, I don't hate anyone, I just want the pain to end. God has plenty of work for me to do in a new pain free body. I am ready when He is.View Thread
