Tammy sorry your having to deal with all this ontop of family problems,unfortunately life moves on around our pain doesnt it?
As for the pain and the diseases worsening it is a fact with a degenerative disease that this will happen and will continue to happen as it is pathology of the disease itself sweety.
It looks as if you are lucky in having a great pain Doc and that they at least try to take care of that asapect of your problems as many many dont have even that. I know that isnt alot of relief but to think where you would be if they didnt take such good care of your pain issues is unthinkable isnt it?
All I can tell you as to how to deal with the ongoing process of coping is to suggest you go to the thread we have on page 2 I think now as I need to go there and make a post so we dont lose it as there is alot of great advice in it,read how others of us that have been living this life for years have found to cope somewhat,it is a great thread and alot of folks have made some wonderful statements there.
Keep coming here to a place where others know and understand your pain and vent when you havto cry when it is needed and lean on others when you cannot stand alone.
Good luck to you!
