My name is Colby and I've joined seeking support, and answers
in hope of just making my life manageable. My family is constantly annoyed
Or frustrated with me even after hearing countless doctors say my injury is only going to get worse. For two years I had epidurals which would give me steroids psychosis, migraines, and severe depression. I had to move in with my mother at 35 after living on own since 17. Lost everything and am just now working hoping I can have some life again. I feel like no one could imagine how bad the pain is unless they had back surgery, I think it is akin to the kind of pain people who are dying experience. I question why even with pain management why I must suffer daily. How can I get my family to understand that even putting shoes on hurts and every task exhausts me. If I had cancer, they would be kind. They act like I'm bad for taking meds. Feeling sorry for myself... not very attractive sorry.
