(((Barbara))) I'm sorry you're in such terrible pain. I'm also one of those who is in a constant low level flare and get hit with mega flares. Fortunately with lasik I'm having some good days and the mega flares only last a few days. You on the other hand, never get a break.
You know that all of your stress is working against you, but it's really hard to break that cycle isn't it? I hope your daughter is kind to you while she's there. After seeing the debt of my daughter's student loan, I'm not a fan of them, but your daughter may have to get a loan, or your husband get one for her.
I know it's difficult for you to see new specialists, but a podiatrist worked wonders with my foot pain by injecting steroids in a precise spot.
I think Lynnwood has a good point about postponing your second cataract surgery.
Well Dear, I think of you often and you are in my prayers. Love Ya, Donna
