Just needed to rant and whine a second....
Tired of being in pain, worrying about how to pay the bills and prescription costs.
Tired my house is mess and not being able to do it..
And tired my hubby doesent understand.
Tired of sitting around the house, and tired of sitting here alone all day... But then again, tired of hubby coming home in a bad mood all the time.
Ok, guess I'm done for now... shakehead

Since ther divorce, I don't have the problem with the spouse anymore, but I still know what you mean! I have had simular days, so your not alone in feeling like that!  Sometimes it is just hard for a spouse to understand how one can be in pain all the time. If they have never been in that condition, it is sometimes really difficult for one to understand  what it is like! We all do here though, so you definitely have come to the right place to vent!
 
Here's to wishing you better days to come! wink

Its very hard on you when the person who loves you, better or worse, remember those vows?  Does not even try to understand what you are going thru?  My own mother for years before she passed, was always telling me I was a hypocrontriac, (not sure of spelling of that word).  Only when my sister (the oldest) looked at my MRIs and tryed to explain to my mother of the realness of my condition did she somewhat believe me.
 
No one wants to feel the way we do.  I have said this before and I will continue, please walk in my shoes for 1 hour, you will feel differently.  Of course that wont happen, have your husband read up on your conditions, read this posting, go to the doctor with you.  I doubt this will help, its didnt with my mom, I mean the one person who is supposed to be on your side.  But do no let that take you down with them.  It took me many years, finally I no longer cared what she thought nor told her what was happening anymore.
 
You take your life back, only you have the power to do that, dont let them get you down, its already difficult enough dealing with everyday life.
 
Take care

Hi Donna I'm so sorry that you're going thru so much on top of your pain. I agree with Nini. Try to get your husband to go to a doctor's appointment with you. I hope you have less pain really soon. Take care.

love and hugs

Hi Donna, I'm soo sorry to hear you're having such a ruff time. Passing soft hugs to you. I'm lucky I have a great hubby that understands my pain due to hes in the same boat. Have him go with you to a doctors visit, then he might under stand what your going through. Again, soft hugs and I hope everything works out for you
