I live in the Mid west in Illinois, Yes I do know what it is like to have back problems as do allot of others here on this forum. I do wish that you did not have such a problem with your pain! You really do need to have a Pian Management Doctor who will listen to you and get your pain under proper control!
As for Alcohol problems really the person that has the drinking problem has to be abe to confront it and acknowledge it to be able to at least do anything about
it. They do have programs for the family members of aloholics to attend to learn how to cope with living with them! Maybe you should try and check that out if your husband will not acknowledge that he has a problem! You might want to check with your closest VA first!
wv.girl yes it is nice to chat with someone every now and then, sepecially if they understand what you are going through! So Please do come here often! I am always here as is a host of others that are all willing and eager to listen and help and support you! Just remember you are not alone in any of this! So post often and let us know how you are getting along. If I can be of any help please let me know,
I do wish you well!
