Hey again, I just replied to your post about methadone and anesthesia...Then I saw this one...Thanks for asking, my son is back home and doing well. We go to therapy a couple of times a month and see the shrink for meds. He is a different kid. His dad doesnt help much. Heck, he only sees him maybe 2 times a year now. Not enough, and it's causing trouble between them. It's like history repeating itself...my parents divorced when I was 14, then dad left and didn't want anything to do with me because he still loved my mom. Then he remarried, had 2 kids, and couldn't be bothered. He had a NEW family and didn't want to deal with the old broken one... His other kids make him proud, I just disappoint. I am just like him and he can't stand it. He had spinal stenosis and had surgery when I was like 3...He has diabetes like me, he has high blood pressure like me. and he's an alcoholic...not like me.
I was so scared when I was writing about what happened with my pain meds...I didn't want people to judge me or feel sorry for me. Luckily, here we all understand. I know that sometimes my pain is soooo bad that I have to take a few extra pills just to make it through the day...and sometimes I take hardly any...I am so glad that my story touched you. And I am glad that you found us. We are here for you, no matter what time it is someone is usually here.
I wish I didn't have to come to a forum like this...But I do...
My Pain Dr. has been injecting Supartz in my knee for the past 2 weeks....She told me on Thursday that I should consider seeing the Psycotherapist at their office as soon as he takes my insurance...Might be a good idea.
Tell me more about your situation...You can get my email on my profile...
