Wow..that is definitely a ride you have been on! I truly hope that you can transition smoothly to a different medication that works for your pain...
And congratulations on the disability decision:) I am in the beginning stages right now and know that it can be a long and arduous process...Thank you for sharing your journey!
I pray that you will be set up with pain control to enjoy your upcoming vacation..we definitely all need that down/relaxing and fun time to boost our emotional health to help us deal with our chronic pain...
