After reading everyone else's response to your post, I felt bad, I was angry that you insulted someplace that has been a lifeline for myself and many others. But that being said, I was a bit harsh, and for that I am sorry, if your husband truly needs support with his many problems, and chronic pain is truly an awful disease to live with 24-7. If there is any relief at all, its mostly fleeting.
But we are all living with it and when my daughter found this site for me last March, I felt like I had come home. There was no constand explaining to anyone why I couldnt do this or that, or many of the things that I had enjoyed doing prior to becoming disabled. I spent almost 2 years in bed getting up only to go to my doctor. We all know how he feels.
So once again, I am sorry I was so harsh, I felt ashamed of myself after reading everyone else's post, which is the way I should have come across in the beginning.
Please take care, and I hope your husband will give the forum another chance. The rules are not that difficult, I myself have the most problems with the rule about using well bad language.
