Hello Beeble....and welcome....You are now an official member of the family...Sorry that we don't have any official welcome for you, but know that you among friends..
Although it's nice to meet new people, it's never nice when pain is the reason for a get together...so....here we go.
Sorry to hear that you have multiple issues...most of us here also have mutiple medical issues....including, but not only mental issues. It seems that having CP goes hand in hand with mental health issues....it sucks...I know...I am also Bipolar, Diabetic, and my 16 yr. old son was recently diagnosed Bipolar also... i also have HBP....I'm sure there are more but I can't think of them right now...
I see that you are taking Morphine for the pain.... I take Methadone and tried to change to Morphine but that was a disaster....so I went back....I also take Oxycodone 30 mg. 4 times a day for the BT pain...I took Neurontin for nerve pain and it worked but it made me feel groggy the next day so I stopped taking it.
We are always here if you want to talk....hope you have a great day>>>>
I have been a spectator for so long..Now it's time to participate.......
