I am usually on the fibromyalgia forum and I think that I have talked to you there, is that possible? I can understand what you are dealing with, it is no fun especially when you are in pain. Oh and I do have an old electrolux so I can kind of picture what this guy is like. ha ha
I believe with chronic pain that I probably by now have an addiction to pain killers. So what, I will have to take them for the rest of my life any way. This is CHRONIC, long term, and most likely forever.
I know it hurts you when your mom talks to you the way she did. You don't need the added stress, it will just make your pain worse, don't you think? Maybe for your benefit you should not talk to her about
it or not comment much when she brings it up. I know that she cares about
you but I don't think she understands what you are going through.
It is too bad that the addicted people who abuse drugs have to make it so much harder for people like us who need the medications.
So try to over look her comments and relax and avoid stress as much as you can until you can see your doctor that you were supposed to see. Once you are in a pain management system by one doctor, if you have to change to another, they usually pick up the same protocol that you were using.
Maybe you can download some information for her to read that will change her additude. Some people get something set in thier heads and are stubborn and wont see things your way. Or she could be in denial over it. But it sounds like you have some bad back problems that need pain management.
I hope I understood what you were saying and didn't just make a fool out of myself, it wouldn't be the first time.
I hope you have a painfree night with plenty of rest. Try to relax, you don't have to prove anything to anybody. Just do what you have to.
