I asked for Lyrica first (as both daughter and I do best on the anti-seizure class meds), but he said because I'm on neurontin Lyrica would be pointless as it turns into the same thing and if the neurontin isn't helping the Lyrica won't, either. He brushed off the fact that the neurontin is a really low dose (this is I want to scream part, I get a lot of docs that don't want to listen to me - the ortho was even worse).
I have a boyfriend that can check on me and helps me out around the apartment a lot, but he can't take full time care of my kid, no. Nor can he pay my bills for me. I'm still working, much as it hurts to be on my feet as much as I am, but no choice. Jobs here are scarce to begin with, jobs that are close to home and fit my daughter's schedule even more so, so as much as it kills me some days, the bills must be paid and I can't risk a breakdown. I don't get sick leave or paid time off.
