Hello, and welcome to the place no one wants to be but all are glad to be here. The cp forum, its been almost a year since I (well my daughter) found the HW forum, and I can say this is the one place where all know what its like to have chronic pain.
Now, OMG, how much can one person take. What a strong person you are. I am not sure if I had the guts to keep going outside. As a personal aside, please when you leave your house, have all of you body armor on. lol. Except its not funny, please do not think I take what you have been through lightly, but in my life without humor, its hard to get up and dress everyday. Which by the way I dont do. I have long since recovered from the depression that follows cp patients, I have no husband, so when I dont get dressed, who cares, the dog seems fine with it.
I live with my youngest daughter and her finance, who I now call "mom and dad", seriously they think they are my parents, I am 58 years old, both my parents have passed years ago. Sadly my youngest suffers from the "I am always right" syndrome. Its very difficult to live with sometimes, as she is 26 and has so much more knowledge than I do, I wonder how I made it to 58, but thats my problem.
I am so glad you have the support you need from your husband, this I am sure has made it much easier for you, and there is nothing easy about chronic pain.
Keep coming back, all posts are valuable and you are an inspiration to all.
I hope you get a correct diagnosis for your cp issues, believe me thats part of the big picture.
Take care of yourself,
