It is a real struggle for me to live with chronic pain. I do have medications and a pain mgt. dr. and other specialists that treat my different problems. Usually I spend my day in my nightgown because I do not go anywhere and spend most of my day in bed. When I get a migraine headache I take my meds for that and usually get an icepack for my head and lay down.
I don't have any friends that call me and the people that I do know rarely call or come by to see if I am OK. That disappoints me quite a lot.
I used to do volunteer work and enjoyed that very much. Even at that time I had horrific headaches that were unbearable.
At this time I have not been able to work for many, many years and I do miss the interaction between other people. I am married and my husband does most of the trips to the grocery store and the pharmacy.
I am very thankful that I have been able to have a very nice lady that cleans my house once a week. She has been working for me for about 4 yrs. now. I trust her completely. I got her name from a lady that used to take me to my dr., appts.
I guess that I deal with my pain the best that I can, but wish that I had more social activity. It is so difficult to be social when you are in pain though.
