Hello Manty's Mom!
I get the same way when my pain is worse, and I have not posted as much as I would like either. I too feel that I need a med change, but my PCD is reluctant to do so at this time. While I do have a good day or two every once in a while, most of them, are not well at all. The whole mess just makes me sick, as I hate the pain and hate the meds to control it.
Like you, I'm hoping some sort of balance will take place soon for me. Are the kids still helping out? I remember you saying that they were doing a pretty good at helping you around the house a while back.
Take care, and I hope your PCD will get all of this straightened out for you soon.
