Hi, I was in a car accident 2 years ago, I was going to work 6 weeks after my back surgery on t10-t11 and a car pulled out in front of me and I T-boned the car with my truck. I ended up having to have surgery 5 months later. I am so stressed out and sick of bills piling up. I just found a pain MD this last May whom I trust. The pain was excruiating in my back and legs. It took 4 nerve block injections that didn't work, PT helped a little with how I should change my postures and do stretching exercises. It took 1 month ago of medication adjustment with embeda,Vicodin, and Flexiril and Ambien. My pain is down to a 2-3 daily, but it doesn't matter,because I can't even get caught up with the bills. that is one reason why I am up at this time in the morning. STRESS. My lawyer is trying to settle the case, I stopped paying my credit card bills and the phone rings constantly because the collection agencies want their money. I thought 40 was an age where your life begins, mine is going down the toilet I am so afraid that I am going to lose my husband and he will be angry if I file bankruptcy next week, he said everything will be OK but will it. I need to slow down at work, I tried to keep up with bills, I worked for 2 years so much overtime, never saw the kids much. I just needed to vent because I don't have anyone to talk to about this. Sometimes I want to just get in my truck and drive away but in all honesty that would not solve my problems.
