Sir, you are NOT alone. That is the whole point of the meetings. When I was working, (4 years ago), the medicines I was on messed me up. I lost my job because of it. But, I'm a wussy. I can't handle the pain, so I do take my pills. But, I have a new doctor. My meds are fixed so I'm not messed up all the time. However, my family still thinks I am and let me know it. I do know how it feels to have people think I'm not stable. Especially my husband. I've been dealing with that for the last 13 years. Please come to the July meeting. According to Art, it will be about home care. You might benefit from it. You just might bring something in that we all need to learn. Please come. We ALL need some support.
Blessed be, Vickie

I keep reading these e-mails from you.  I want to attend but it feels like I'm giving up.  I have 5 rods in my spine and bilateral hip replacements.  I live in pain every day!  I choose NOT to take the pills they give me.  Sometimes, I am so tempted to take them because I hurt so much. It's silent now because folks at work either overreact or tell my boss that I'm 'ON something' (because people suck) when in reality, I have just not slept because of the pain.  Seriously,,,,meetings have been called to discuss my stability.  It's a horrible existence.  I'm single and live alone and depression has become a partner to my life.  I cannot talk to my family or friends (which are few) because they worry so much.  It's a catch 22 (as they say).  I'm alone in this.
