Good Morning and Welcome chrisherry
I know what you mean by being a homebody...sometimes I don't get out for a week at a time. But I think it's from depression from Bipolar...It's hard to make myself get up, take a shower, put on makeup, do my hair.....But since I've been coming here it seems to be better.
Being a former nurse, you are aware that chronic pain and depression go hand in hand, and we have to work harder then most to be "normal". Ha Ha What's that really?
We are always here for you when you need us....and sometimes when you don't WANT us!! But we are always willing to help if we can, and offer advice if we don't know the answer..
So, come back often. Don't be a stranger....
We are all in the same boat...unfortunatley it seems like it's sinking...
